Alison , Whitefield

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Its lightweight and able to take it with me when I go away for this reason and size and battery life is excellent. This product was also chosed because of the screen resolution size which I needed for one of the programmes I use.
Bad points:
Would help tremendously if Microsoft Word was on it.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It's small, lightweight and super compact. Love it... Very cute and fast, it does everything I need it to. From my point of view I only need it for the basics but I couldn't fault it at the price I paid. I mostly use it connected to power so not sure about battery life just yet. Keyboard is a great size.
Bad points:
Didn't realise when buying that it's an oversized net-book and therefore doesn't have a CD/DVD drive. That's probably my onlu criticism! Would definitely recommend this.

The screen size and keyboard size are excellent for a notebook. These two factors, together with the size and weight were the main factors in my decision to buy this.

I haven't found any real bad points or disadvantages to this notebook.
