Good points:
A well designed and attractive pruduct works well nice to handle
Bad points:
Battery life more like 5 hrs and not 10 perhaps the battery has created a memory and will only take about 2 hrs charge. It reports fully charged 100% but only giving 5 hrs use.

Danai, Wallington General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Everything from the software, the keyboard is more less full size minus the number keys and the battery and management system give you a long time between charges. Use mine about 9hrs a week in 3hr blocks. I only charge once a week!!!!
Online backup storage is also worthwhile. Very light!
Bad points:
The surface is a fingerprint and smudge heaven!!! You need to constantly wipe the laptops to keep it looking good.

Richard, Westcliff on Sea, Essex Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The netbook works very well ... easy to use, no problems, connects to a remote CD rom via USB to load software. Internet worked well both via Wi fi and cable so I'm happy.
Bad points:
Nothing really wrong at all. I think it should be clearly stated not all the pre-loaded software is fully licenced and will only operate for a trial period before licence must be purchased. I would like the netbook to have been a bit smaller and lighter but probably this would not be achievable without sacrificing some of the good features like battery life for instance. Really I'm well satisfied.

Vitaly, Uxbridge, Middlesex General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very small and smart device for traveller. It has really long-living battery (with wi-fi on and using the battery life estimate is about 6-7 hours). It is capable of doing any everyday tasks like web surfing, e-mails, preparing document or presentation etc.
Bad points:
It is definitely not for use for a whole day. You will be absolutely exhausted after the whole day of working with it, because of small screen and smaller than normal keybord.

Neil, Northwich General home user

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
Neat design and light weight.
Bad points:
The first netbook had to be replaced due to constant 'blue-screening' and unrequested re-boots. The second netbook supplied had a 'fatal' battery charge problem (quite common according to web-forums for this paticualr netbook) following which I requested a refund and purchased a Samsung NC10 which I have been VERY happy with
