Lovely little netbook but keep an eye on the wifi connectivity.

Excerpt: I bought my son one of these for christmas on the strength of the reviews and also because he was insisting on windows xp instead of windows 7 which narrowed the field a bit. We bought it at the end of October because PC world were doing a trade-in discount for old laptaps at the time, but as...
Good for using the odd time, not for excessive use.

Excerpt: I did not personally own one of these, but my brother did which i sneakily used quite a lot, and i have also used it at my college who have a load of them. However i have now decided to pay my brother half, to share it with him as it is very handy!
Summary: Bought for my 9 year old to do what 9 year olds do. All great but bit slow and suffers from wireless drop out frequently without any solution it would seem. No problem with all other laptops in the house or router issues. Just won't stay connected for long periods without issues.

Summary: This netbook was easy to set up on arrival. Its nice and lightweight and good features however I find the screen is a bit small and takes getting used too. It works on battery for ages which is a major plus point however to do this you need to reduce screen brightness!
Summary: I bought this netbook 2 years ago and having owned this, what I think of it is that its lightwheight and small which is perfect to put on the lap. The only problem I had was the speed; it was too slow on the internet.
Be aware that the software only lasts a month or so

Summary: Love that this little computer is lightweight but feels well made, but I wanted to warn you all that the Office software on it is just for trial - it doesn't last a year, as other reviewers have said - just a few weeks, then it jams up and won't work.
Summary: I bought my N130 to use whilst travelling - Only used at home so far but very pleased. It is a delightful small machine - I've just obtained a slimline USB CD to load applications - you can do this by networking to a PC with a drive but I found this too challenging and possibly difficult mixing a...
