Doreen, Halesworth Business user

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Notebook looks good
Bad points:
Notebook would not connect to internet, and I had problems getting money back .Now in account. You were not able to replace it with similar one, I could only presume there had been a fault with all of them and they were withdrawn.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Size and weight are excellent - portable in every sense of the word.
Bad points:
One GB of RAM is not really enough for such a powerful little computer. I have already invested in an upgrade to 2GB (the maximum the single RAM slot will allow).

Alexander , Lancaster Business user

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
It looks nice and weight and battery life are fine.
Bad points:
I have not installed any software really and yet the netbook already causes endless problems. Internet Explorer frequently crashes, as does Opera. Outlook crashes frequently as well. I bought this to quickly browse while on the train etc but "quickly" does not really apply to this product. I spend more time with Task Manager than with anything else.

Steve, Plymouth Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Perfect for what I need. (Use all day for work - Word and Excel).
Battery life seems longer than stated.
Good build quality.
Can use the small screen when out of the office, but in the office I just plug it into a monitor.
Bad points:
None about the computer.
Still waiting for my VAT receipt from the major supermarket whom I bought it off... (in fairness the product was delivered next day)

Juliette , Harrow Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This is a very lightweight and convenient laptop to carry around and suits the basics needs of using a word document or looking something up on the internet very quickly. Extremely user friendly and provides all the basic home computing that you could need.
Bad points:
Sometimes the connection time i.e moving from one page to another can be a bit slow, but I have noticed that this happens usually on the internet, when there is a page with a high data load.
