  • Summary: I do like this little laptop. Delivery was FAST. Only issues are: The battery seems to disconnect easily, when you grab it from the case or bump it in a certain way, and the case it came with is almost too small.

Check Before You Buy

  • Summary: My wife bought it to do her email and surf the net. She likes the portability and battery charge is OK. When keying in, the letters are entered all over the document. The biggest problem is that the Internet connection may have to be "Repaired" 3 to 6 times for each email being written due to no connectivity. Our Other machines do not have this problem and are in the same room. Last- try to get MSI tech support.
  • Pros: Adequate Storage, Comfortable Keyboard, Compact
  • Cons: Internet connectivity bad, Keyboard entry jumps, No technical support

runs with ubuntu 9.04 very fast

  • Summary: This is a nice choice if you are traveling a lot. Battery life is long lasting and the performance under WINDOWS XP SP3 is good enough for web and office use. Entertainment (audio and video) during long flights and in waiting areas of airports is possible but due to the weak audio performance a little bit difficult, even with earphones. It is much faster with UBUNTU 9.04 but not stronger in audio output, so you can only solve the audio problems with an amplified headset.
  • Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Quality Display, Quiet
  • Cons: Audio sound very quiet, Slow with windows, Weak mic

Was hoping for more

  • Summary: Netbooks are to Notebooks as a Seiko is to a Casio. For the reduced size, weight, power and price, you will give up on some performance you probably never needed. On the other hand, this is no Panasonic PowerBook. In fact, I would be very surprised if this computer survives it's first fall. So instead of purchasing a $900 notebook that might last 3 years, we'll be spending $300 a year on a Netbook and feeding the landfill with more junk.
  • Pros: Long Battery Life
  • Cons: Poor internal speakers, Poorly Designed Keyboard

  • Excerpt: Buongiorno a tutti, per necessità lavorative e di mobilità, ho deciso di acquistare un Netbook, ovvero, un Notebook dalle potenzialità "ridotte", senza lettore/masterizzatore integrato e con un peso contenuto. Qualcuno si domanderà il perchè di una scelt ...

  • Cons: Non fategli vedere applicazioni in 3D pesanti .  .  .  .  .  .  . potrebbe esplodere !
