nice compromise between a netbook and a notebook

Justin L., Newegg

  • Pros: size/weight, keyboard, HDMI, fit and finish
  • Cons: maybe a tad slow but as a general purpose computer, it's adequate.

can upgrade to above 4GB RAM

George C., Newegg
4 February 2014
  • Summary: Only 2GB RAM on a 64 bit OS, at this price not really a con.
  • Pros: Sturdy well built netbook, if your reading this you've probably decided on getting this. Where else are you gonna get a ideapad at this price. I got lucky and got the correct AC adapter.
  • Cons: As others have said it is a minor pain to take apart but not as bad as Apple laptops and MAC minis.

What a great little machine.

David H., Newegg
9 January 2014
  • Pros: It came in great physical condition, unlike a couple others I got the correct charger. Everything worked right out of the box. Comes with a windows 7 Key.
  • Cons: Bloatware/drivers. Ran poorly upon start up and internal fans ran non-stop. Intel software was causing very high cpu usage and high temps. Initial sweep was to remove all the bloat.

Wrong cord

Samara H., Newegg
27 November 2013
  • 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.

Awesome

bboytoast, Amazon
16 January 2012
  • Summary: Had this about half a year. Cracking machine. Boots up in less than a minute, strong enough to process everything you'd want day to day (nothing has phased it yet) and lasts for about 5 hours. I take it everywhere (it's constantly in my bike bag) - it's had tonnes of physical abuse and it's still absolutely fine. It's robust and very competent. Not sure why I insisted on having 17inch screens all these years, the 10inch screen is perfect.

Excellent Little Netbook

Benjamin Hodgetts, Amazon
11 November 2011
  • Summary: I bought this to install Linux on and I've had no issues doing so. I'm using Arch Linux and installation was simple. Just put the USB stick in and installed, no issues with UEFI as some people seem to have mentioned. It's much faster than the Atom netbooks I've used (especially in the graphics department) and will happily last most of the day with light use (I've had it on for my entire 8 hour work day without running out when only using it occasionally).
