Confirmed purchaser General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Compact, lightweight, easy to use.
Bad points:
Rather slow until memory upgraded to 2GB; need to keep the "sleep and charge" function turned off except when actually using it, as when it is turned on it drains the battery even when the machine is turned off, whether or not anything is plugged into that USB port.

Emily, Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I love the battery life, which is at least 8 hours on my machine. Brilliant.
Bad points:
Because of the above, it's a tad heavier and bulkier than other netbooks.

Monika, London Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Lightweight and a great battery life, especially if you disable the USB Sleep and Charge feature. The speakers are also amazing, and when I'm working on my desktop I'll usually have the Toshiba next to me, streaming videos or playing music. It even runs WoW, if you don't mind playing on low settings.
Bad points:
Took me a day to remove all the bloatware they install nowadays, and it ships with Windows 7 Starter, meaning you can't even change your wallpaper without hacks or upgrading. Still, those are minor issues and nothing to do with the machine hardware itself.
