Excerpt: When our house was flooded last summer, life turned into a bit of a nightmare. We were forced to move into rental accommodation for three months. We were lucky in the fact that a friend was able to rent a newly renovated barn to us (many who were flooded in our area had to make do with caravans in...
Pros: Light and extremely portable . Easy and quick WiFi connectivity . HDMI socket .
Cons: Rather slow . Greasy fingerprint marks to outer casing . Windows 7 starter is limiting .

Summary: I got this machine as part of a bundled mobile broadband deal, upgrading from my old Acer Aspire One ZG5. On the plus side, I must say that the increased disc space, screen resolution and battery life are better than the Aspire. These are the only ways in which it is better.

Summary: I thought this looked like a cracker of a buy but it's actually quite on the slow side. I upgraded to 2gb RAM from the standard 1Gb and still it's pretty laggy. Skype gives a warning message saying it's too slow for video calls. It doesn't play youtube very smoothly either.
Summary: Most of the netbooks on the market seem fairly similar so I chose the NC110 primarily for its advertised battery life of more than 10 hours. I was therefore sorely disappointed when I found out that I get less than 6 hours.
