      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great for internet use

      To start off with, I am going to tell you all that I have the black version of this laptop, not the very fashionable pink one! As much as it would complement my... style... I just preferred the black!

      Usually I am someone who wants the best gadgets around, which do everything. I have a perfectly Sony Vaio laptop but sometimes it annoys me because of its size. This is not a massive laptop or anything, just a normal everyday laptop. Smaller even than some of its main competitors. But I just wanted something a bit simpler, a bit lighter to sit on my lap while I am watching the tv. I find at times that I am peering over the top to see the tv. Sometimes it can be a bit buggy as well so decided to give myself a treat.

      This little netbook is great if you just want something simple and easy to use to go on the internet or do a bit of typing. However, if you want much else then it is best to stick to a multifunctional laptop. I spend a lot of my time on the internet so I do find this very useful. Another good point is the size. This is a tiny little thing and I suggest you get a cover for it if you are going to be taking it anywhere. Keep those pesky scratches from appearing. I got myself a good little zip cover from Amazon when I bought this netbook.

      Windows 7 Starter isn't a patch on Windows 7. The first thing I noticed is that you can't change the background on your screen. I was trying to put up one of my favourite photos as the background and realised there was no option to do this. I researched online and found that this just isn't possible. You are stuck with what you get. Not a big deal really, just a small annoyance. It would also have been nice to have the full Word/Excel/Access/Powerpoint package but you just get a trial. I recommend downloading Open Office if you want to do some typing and spreadsheets etc.

      There are the usual accessories like the calculator, Word pad, media player, Adobe and the like so it's not completely void of programs. You need to remember that this is a netbook and therefore don't expect it to be all singing all dancing. The webcam is nothing to write home about either, the quality is questionable. But again, if you want lots of programs and a good quality built in webcam then invest in a laptop, with Windows 7.

      Specs:

      RAM: 1 Gb
      Widescreen display 10.1 inch
      250 Gb hard drive
      Intel Atom
      Webcam with integrated microphone
      92% full keyboard size
      Intel GMA 950 Graphics
      6 hours battery life
      Bluetooth
      3 USB ports
      Weight: 1.2 kg

      All in all, this is a nice little netbook but does lack in features. If you just want to surf the net then this is great but if you want a lot more from your gadget then think of investing in a laptop.

      £150-£300 depending on where you shop.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Apart from the monitor trouble and the adapter problem, it works perfectly fine. Does its job.

      I bought this as my first netbook with £280 in August 2009. As a netbook, it's quite fast - it plays DVD movies rather smoothly, but it freezes when you play blueray disks (from USB) which is normal for netbook. I upgraded the RAM to 2Gb by buying a RAM card online myself and replaced the built-in 1Gb RAM card with it. It weighs 1.2kg and fits in most of my handbags, great portability. The battery lasts about 1-1.5 hour if you just browse. However, 9 months after the purchase a faulty red line appeared permanently on the LCD screen; I bought this laptop in America and therefore I couldn't use the 1 year warranty. Besides, the adapter burnt, so I went on eBay and bought a replacement. After that, the replacement also broke so I had to order another adapter replacement. I do carry the laptop around with me quite often and dropped it on a few occassions though to be fair. The webcam is of very bad quality and the sound quality of the speakers is low. The switch-on button is very fragile and I think it's just a matter of time that it's gonna wear out one day. I haven't used another netbook before so I can't really compare but this doesn't seem to be a good purchase to me, I guess I'll stick with laptop.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great for general use

      A word of warning before we start, I am a complete novice with computers!
      This review therefore will focus on the ease of use, reliability and general points about the netbook.

      I bought the netbook in January (we are now in July) for a very reasonable £110. It was bought primarily to do a little word processing and for surfing the net.

      In my novice opinion the netbook has been fantastic. It has a brilliant battery life of about six hours which is a great bonus when you want to take it away with you for long train journeys or overnight stays.

      It has an attractive design and its compact size means that it tidies away very nicely.

      It took a little time to get used to the smaller keyboard but other than that I have seen no downsides to this fantastic little machine.

      I have used it nearly every day since purchase and it is running wonderfully. There seems to be a huge amount of storage. I have a lot of photos on it as well as itunes and I still have the majority of the memory free to use.

      For others like me who just want to use it for a bit of surfing and general use it would appear that this is a great little piece of technology.
