      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Gret notebook if you are not a needy computer user

      I've hurt my back a bit recently so I am kind of stuck on this notebook since I can't sit without feeling pain. Not that I actually mind lying in bed with laptop right besides me.

      This is mainly used by my sister, I'm not extremely fond of it since it has a mini screen (10.1" -26 cm x 18.5 cm x 3.3 cm- and there is even a smaller version!!!), but when you have no choice... Well it's super micro size does have an advantage, it weights only 1.33kg which is great if you intend to carry it with you. There are lighter models available but this is due to battery - the lighter it is less time it works.

      Basically this is a small sleek looking laptop, our is white, black with silver detail but you can also get it in other colours. I like how it is designed it really is stylish. One of the better looking notebooks.

      PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND HOW WELL DOES IT WORK

      Built-in Devices Stereo speakers, wireless LAN aerial
      Processor Intel Atom N280 1.6 GHz
      Cache Memory 512 KB - L2 Cache
      RAM 1 GB installed, 2 GB max - DDR2 SDRAM
      Card Reader 5 in 1
      Hard Drive 160 GB
      Graphics Controller Intel GMA 950 Dynamic Video Memory Technology 3.0
      Audio Output Sound card
      Networking Network adapter - Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, IEEE
      48.8 W 4400 mAh 6-cell Li-ion battery
      802.11b, IEEE 802.11g
      Wireless NIC Acer InviLink 802.11b/g
      Notebook Camera Integrated - 0.3 Megapixel
      Input Device Keyboard, touchpad
      3 USB ports


      Now at the first glance the specification are far better than the ones on my desktop but how does this work in reality? Oh an yes if you did not notice it does not have CD/DVD drive.

      Well the reality is although this one has decent specifications it is rather average. It is good for browsing the internet if you are not the kind of person that wants to have 100's of tabs open at any given time.

      It also does a great job when it comes to dealing with word editing software, when you keep it simple. It will take it's time to start the software though (we are talking about few seconds here).

      It is a rather soft computer, if you are used to normal quick computers this one will cost you some nerves if you will want something more out of it.

      Game playing is certainly a no-go, well you are able to play simple games, without a lot of flashy fancy graphics. It works well with Facebook (and other social networking sites) games and applications so if you play these games there is nothing to worry about if you are thinking on purchasing this one.

      But not everything is so bad. As I said you can easily use this computer for basic functions - most of the users do that anyway - so if this is your aim in buying this computer you should. The thing that I find amazing about this one is that the battery lasts for whole 6 hours! And that's not imaginary 6 hours, you know the ones that are written on the box but are never realised - it's actual six hours! You can easily see how much you have left with sliding your mouse cursor over the battery icon and you will see how much % you have left and how much time - at this time my computer shows 4:22 left and 66%. Quite fine.

      It was a bit weird for me to see this one does not have a CD drive but I soon realised I actually don't need it that much in terms of use on this computer. Mostly all data transferring that is done nowadays goes through internet or USB keys I only need the DVD few times a year wand for that it really is not necessary to have a CD drive. I only need the drive for games which you can't really play on this one anyway. Considering this one has 160GB of free space that you can fill with data, there is no real fear you will fast run out of space.

      This little thing has some other cool functions that a regular user might find in handy, Bluetooth device so you can easily connect with your other devices, simple in built camera and microphone that will make your Skype chatting easier (online chatting) and a pretty decent sound card - the sound is clear so you will easily be listening to your favourite tracks - low volume though. Card reader - really useful if you loose cables of your digital camera.

      Keyboard is a bit smaller than regular ones so this will need some time to get used to but it is really functional and responsive. Touchpad is really sensitive although at the first look you would not say so. It only has one button and it is sensitive on left and right certainly lessens the possibility for dirt to get under.

      FINAL VERDICT

      Although this is not the notebook I would choose since my demands are way higher (guilty of game playing) for someone that needs the computer to perform basic tasks this one with the amazing price of £ 199.00 (on Amazon) is certainly one to put on the list. It's lightweight certainly adds to it's value. It already has a original copy of Windows XP Home preloaded so if you consider this the price is really great!
      It's long-lasting battery is fantastic, I don't have a plug near the sofa where I rest so this is helpful, and well so is for travel. It charges in less than an hour. I actually start to like the little guy, for basic stuff that is.

        Disadvantages

        worth the price

        This little laptop has been well desighned and looks nice. The perfomance of this laptop isnt that good it can some times take a long time to load even a web page but it is very light waight and will come in handy for work but it should not be used for anything aprt from web browsing and useing word processers.

        I some times get probloms with page jumping it some times goes back a page or to for no reason but i dont no if that is just my laptop or a problom with all of them. This is a good little first laptop for people who anrt good with computers to get used to useing laptops and then upgrade when they no what there doing. It would make a good gift.

        I would stay clear of games with this laptop beacuse it dousent handle any of the lateist games very well at all or even old ones for that matter but i gess it was not made for games any way and is still a very good starter laptop and i would recormend it to any one as a first laptop and is worth the money overall.

        thanks for reading.
