Summary: overall i'm satisfied with this purchase. it had an issue where it would not defrag but the computer was used and older so some issues are to be expected. purchased as a gift for a friend who is now using it.
Summary: I like this little netbook more than any other type of netbook. I've tried Gateway netbooks, HP netbooks, but these little Dell units are just really nice, and easy to use. They also last well and survive durable use with aplomb. I have two of these, and I wouldn't hesitate to buy another. If anyone wants a quality product, this little dell netbook is a winner.
Summary: I bought this from an ebayer who had replaced the screen. I wanted Verizon connectivity and functionality as a laptop was secondary. The purchase has turned out to be excellent. I got a dedicated V Wireless line and can pick up a signal most everywhere, including at home where connectivity with the HP is better than that of my wife's tablet which is 4G LTE.
Nothing fancy but can handle any task. 3G capable when needed.

Summary: Battery life is mediocre for a netbook. Display quality good enough although turned up all the way it isn't that bright. USB ports, network port, memory card, and vga ports get used. Built in touchpad and mouse buttons are still working excellent after a few years. Built in webcam is useful too. I have the 3G model from Verizon running XP. At home it grabs onto the wireless network pretty fast with no fuss.
