Recently in need of a new computer I decided to buy an IBM X40. I purchased a refurbished until for around 200 UK pounds while a few years ago one of these would have cost at least 1000 UK GBP brand new. Overall I'm very satisfied with the performance. The notebook is very solid, durable and the keyboard is comfortable. Netbooks seemed to have gained a lot of popularity lately due to their low price however you get what you pay for with their poor build quality and flimsiness. The specifications on this notebook are nothing special since it's over 4 years old however it is more than suitable for surfing the net and writing up documents. One minor dissatisfaction is the lack of USB ports, this notebook only has 2 ports which isn't adequate. Also the graphics card is an intel graphics card which might cause compatibility problems for anyone who wants to use media related hardware such as graphics cards. The IBM X40 is a business notebook, complete with pentium m processor and wireless, extremely sturdy and durable. For anyone who wants to look professional don't bother with a flimsy looking toy like netbook buy one of these refurbished or second hand.
