Most helpful reviews

David, Conyer Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This was bought as a back up and a kick around sort of machine to take on the boat or when travelling. It powers up really quickly and is plenty fast enough for emailing and internet browsing. The processor is great and the machine seems pretty well put together. This has windows xp which is better for me than a Linux system as everything seems to work and connect straight away. (I'm sure Linux fans feel the same way about their system too!) I've recommended this machine to other buyers already as its just ridiculously good value.
Bad points:
The machine had an almost invisable scratch on the case, (reminded me that it was a refurbished unit but not a problem at all!)

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent key board, especially if you have big mits like me! Screen very clear with excellent performance. This does what it says,it's a net book. Having said that processor is fast for the tasks it is expected to do, and will run a few applications at once. Dont expect an advent gaming PC! Buy it for the right reasons and it wont disapoint.
Bad points:
Screen/lid wont go back past 100*. Awkward sometimes when using it on your lap. As with all or mostly all as far as I know, there is no CD/optical/burner call it what you will. Buy one if you want to create an emergency start up disc or if used for work, to download files etc. Mine will play films etc though.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
This Netbook is conveniently sized with a good clear screen and reasonably fast performance. I am very pleased with it - it seems good basic value for money.
Bad points:
The battery lasts about 1.5 hours on normal use; a little longer would be good.
