Good points:
It's a nice laptop for going out and about and great for kids.
Bad points:
Not that it's a huge problem but the battery life isn't the best but still pretty good for what it is. The design isn't great but i didn't buy it for that reason.

Jaggard, Colchester Often on the move

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Perfect in theory - good battery life, extremely portable and has all the basics the casual user could need.
Bad points:
It freezes and crashes constantly, making all the good points about it completely redundant. Apprently it's a common problem and can be solved by reinstalling the/installing a different OS, however it proved so frustrating and time consuming finding a way to get a new OS onto it (a process involving formatting a usb drive and installing an OS onto a usb so you can boot it on the netbook - tricky to do when all usbs these days are write protected!) and when I finally managed to do it the netbook didn't recoignise the OS anyway!

As I said before, perfect in theory, and not all netbooks of this type will have the same problem mine did, but be warned, if it does have the problem then you have completely wasted your money. Crashes can happen from only seconds after booting or you might not get hit for an hour if you're very lucky, but you always have to do a hard shut down and lose most of any work you were doing before it happened. A good netbook, but not worth the risk, especially for business purposes.
