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 .
Cons: As a computer novice it gave me bad moments in set-up. Getting transfers from my main p.c was a real headache. The sound quality is tinny. On reflection it may have been better to buy an i pad. However, overall it is o.k.
Summary: I have had this laptop for a week now, and have spent more time re-booting, re-starting, re-setting and re-something else-ing than I have using it as a computer. I'm hoping it's just "settling in" issues but does it REALLY need to update EVERY time I boot-up / log off?
Summary: Compared to the MACbook I use, this was never going to be a realistic contender, but I got this for my dad who is less snobbish. But even he didn't appreciate some of the clumsy features.... Eg the scroll pad needs modifying as the speed is auto-set to very fast. Its also not very touch sensitive...
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 bought it to replace my NC10, which is a dream/ but was starting to show its age with a dying and wheezing fan, as well as attacks of the dreaded white screen. The NC110 comes with Windows 7, supposedly superior to XP, which I have used at home and work.
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.
