Good points:
THE CHICKENS IN SPACE GAME THAT COMES WITH IT IS ACE! - Nicely made, lovely keyboard, great performance. Webcam, screen is of very good quality.
Bad points:
There aren't any. For a sub £300 laptop this is brilliant value for money. Watch out for other suppliers flogging the 8.9 inch screen version not the 10 inch.

Plus, ingeniously designed spacebar and touchpad, so your fingers can move smoothly while avoiding strain.

Unlike its other competitors that has compromised the memory capacity to decrease in size, the U100 is equipped with the 2.5 inch standard hard drive 160G*. It can operate just as any other notebook computers; without the worries of not having enough memory capacity to record the greatest moments in life.

- The Newest Intel Atom Processor
Intel Atom Processor uses a brand new design structure as basis adding in as much as 47 million transistors into one single chip, and the size is not even 25 (mm). This is smallest and uses the least energy (power usage in limited below 1 to 2.5 watts) Intel processors thus far. Not only so, this processor has more than enough mobility and outstanding functions so our users can to have complete access to the resourceful internet.

U100 offers a complete entertainment interface, which includes the 4 in 1 Card Reader (applicable to SD. MMC, MS, and MS Pro), so it may meet the standards of the mainstream memory cards, making it easy to upload digital files into the notebook computer. Our focus was on the common products in the market, such as PDA’s, digital cameras, digital video cameras, digital MP3 Players, Global GPS Systems and such, also connecting to the U100 through USB 2.0 Port. An external DVD burner may be added (optional) to play and burn important files at will.
