Brilliant and powerful netbook

J. Douglas, Amazon
19 August 2013
  • Summary: I love my IdeaPad. I've had it nearly 2 years now and I use it every day. It's small enough to take everywhere but the keyboard is full size so you can do a lot of writing on it if you need to. It also has very good specifications and I can play Sims 3 on it with no problems. Office runs smoothly and multitasking with multiple programs open is fine. The battery life is excellent and comes with an application to manage how you use the battery power.

The good, the bad and the ugly

  • Summary: Whilst I have given this laptop a 4 out of 5, I could just as easily given it a 1 out of 5. It really depends on the type of user you are as to how it should be rated. If you are the kind of person who opens up the box and lives with the operating system that the manufacturer has provided, this is a good machine!

Thumbs up for amazon, Thumbs down for HDNL

John Cunningham, Amazon
2 April 2012
  • Summary: The product is great and seems to be working well, mind you i have only been using it for a few hours. What really annoyed me was the delivery. I paid extra for guaranteed delivery. It didnt arrive on the arranged day. To be fair amazon refunded delivery costs. The courier site said the product was out in a delivery van on a sunday despite me knowing they didnt deliver on sundays. The site was still saying out on delivery until it finally turned up on monday afternoon.

Does what it says on the box

Yellow2A, Amazon

  • Summary: I wanted a smallish, light laptop (especially light) that could do basic to middling laptop functions. Not worried about video editing etc. Need it to host my Ppt training on the move and be able to work, email etc whenever. Seems, after a few weeks of light use that it'll be up to the job. Not terribly fast or powerful of course, but up to the job. Particularly like the keyboard which I can type faster and more acurately on than any other that I've known I think.

Good hardware, great value, some OS support traps

Andrew Clover, Amazon

  • Summary: There's traditionally a gap in the market between the low-end netbook (saddled with Atom CPU, 1GB and Windows Starter) and the `proper' costlier/heavier performance laptop. This device sits nicely in that gap, providing enough memory and a powerful enough CPU/GPU to do cover pretty much any desktop task a PC would do, at an excellent price-point... obviously it's not for top-end gaming, but it's plenty meaty enough for virtualisation, video editing and so on.

Nice netbook for a very good price

mrkdwd, Amazon

  • Summary: Only had this a week and been working a lot so not used it that much. Great size, little bigger than your average netbook but not too big so it has great portability. Everything runs smoothly and quickly, no problems with wifi connectivity that some people seem to have. I might come back to this review after I've had it for a few months but initial feelings are positive!

A Practical Netbook/Ultra-portable

I. M. Hawley, Amazon
4 January 2012
  • Summary: After much research I plumped for this netbook. If the model is an E-450 then the GPU is actually a HD 6320M which can burst to 600MHz as opposed to the fixed 500MHz of the HD 6310M. PERFORMANCE Windows gives the unit an overall score of 3.9, this being the lowest score and for Processor. Aero Gets 4.6, RAM 5.8 and Gaming and HDD get 5.9. Pretty impressive then IMHO.

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).
