Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The size. I have a normal laptop but this one is great to take around with you it does everything the larger one does but is just smaller and compact I'm well pleased.
Bad points:
Key pad a bit small so if you have big fingers then it might be a problem but for me it's great, I have to change the font size to be able to read stuff but I still think it's great

Gary, Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
looks good and is nice and lightweight. Less weight for aircraft hand luggage.
Bad points:
Would have been nice to have a choice of a memory upgrade at point of purchase. Has a slightly irritating habit of hanging on closing down while waiting for 'applications to close'

Good points:
Very attractive and light weight...easy to use.
Bad points:
Unfortunately Windows 7 makes it quite slow, I much prefer XP on it, but it doesnt reflect on the fact that its a brill netbook.

Anon, General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Extremely good value for money netbook. The advertised dual core C50 chip is about as good as you can find in most netbooks - mine actually came with a C60 chip, which is the new improved version.
Bad points:
1GB supplied memory is not enough and makes for a frustrating experience. Upgrading to 2GB only cost me a tenner but was slightly fiddly and may well have voided my warranty, although the perfomance is now greatly improved. There also appear to be several different versions of this netbook in circulation with various different specs. I was expecting a sceen resolution of 1280x720, but got 1024x600, which was a little disappointing but perfectly usable.
