Price is great but you are getting what you pay for
Variant Zero, Newegg

Summary: All in All, I would not buy this computer again, I would spend more money for something better.
Pros: The biggest pro of this machine is that it is dirt cheap. It's fairly quiet as well. Other than that I don't have many good things to say.
Cons: Where to begin... Ok, I understand that this is a bare bones laptop, something that is not designed to blow any minds, but it is possibly the slowest computer I have dealt with since the 90s. It can't handle having more than 2 windows open at once, hell, it can barely handle having 1 open. Now I am by no means an expert on computers, but I checked the Task Manager one day when things were going particularly bad. I had two windows open at this time and the thing almost...
Summary: Looks adorable, feels adorable. If only they'd sent the correct cord. Thank goodness the prices of chargers have gone down- at least for this little guy.
Pros: Cute little thing! Light, small, and the feet on the bottom are positioned in such a way that it has good ventilation. Good for traveling, I'd imagine. Even though it's refurbed, it's in pretty dang good condition. Only a few scratches on the outside, and they're barely noticeable.
Cons: Got this refurbed, the price was right- the charging cord they sent was not. Too big for it. I'm moving at the end of the month, I don't have time for a lengthy RMA process so I just ordered what I hope is the correct cord on A Certain Other Online Retailer for $20.
Summary: We went from netbooks, to tablets, now we are at surface. Seems like we have gone full circle. Not a speed demon, but adequate. I write a lot of papers and do a lot of research - working great for me. Out of the box, it was slow, took off the bloat ware, messed with the memory manager, cleaned the registry, defragged the disk, Bingo! it is working well. Will probably upgrade the memory to 4 GB.
Pros: Portable, Windows 7 Home Premium - 64, Price Point, Lots of external ports, excellent keyboard.
Summary: Seeing as I haven't written a review yet I decided to write one now. I own this netbook for about a year now and it is a great purchase. To my amazement it can even play League of Legends, which is a nice bonus for when I'm away on the weekends.
