Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I like the lightness of it and is easy to carry around. It has a large hard drive which was a factor I was looking at at the time, as I wanted all my files in one place. The key pad is easy enough to use, thou sometimes you can hit two keys at once by mistake. I like the built in camera feature. Battery life when it is in use is roughly 2 1/2 hours not 10. That is when I'm only typing in word or browsing the internet. It's great for simple things to use. Can buy an external DVD/CD ROM, which works just fine. Managed to install programs I wanted on the Netbook. Love the colour (Red).
Bad points:
It gets extremely hot underneath as it has no fan to cool the processor. Can only use it for short periods at a time. The touch pad can be frustrating to use and I find I have to hit the top right of it to get a proper response or use the buttons. At first I found the double click button annoying, but discovered you could change that in the settings under mouse in control panel, as it held onto things and didn't let go. Doesn't come with a bag or protective case. Had to pick up a cheap makeup bag which is the perfect size with two side pockets, one side for the netbook and the other side for the power cord and DVD ROM drive. Has carry handles and looks good (for a women). Not to bulky either. The sound is rubbish, sounds like an old radio. But is fine with head phones on. My husband loves his music and he hated the sound of it. So I gave him my laptop and I use this instead.
