Advantages: Light, portable, easy to use, highly upgradeable, helpfull forums
Disadvantages: Looks normal, not a full on gaming laptop(but no netbooks are)
I have had this laptop for around 6 months now because i wanted something a bit more portable to take to uni and make notes during lectures etc.
Its not the most powerful netbook in the world but it handles everythign i throw at it, including photoshop.
Ive upgraded the ram to 2gb whcih cost me about £10, i also fitted a 9cell battery that can be purchased from numerous places. This has extended the batterylife to arounf 8/9 hours.
Its an incredibly light and portable netbook, which i would actually call a mini laptop because i am able to do everything that i can do on my larger laptop on this, bar playing high end games.
There really isnt much that seperated this from all of the other netbook/notebooks on the market today, they all use the same basic processors with the same power, all have the same amount of ram and the same operating system.
This caught my eye as many people have installed mac os10 operating software and also linux, aswell as the numerous windows operating systems.
The only flaw i can find with it is that there is not a split mouse pad so you cannot click both buttons to open a new window.
There also isnt a scroll option built into the tracker pad, so you will have to manually move the page up and down.
- Low power consumption
- Low price
- Good looks
- Same spec as all other netbooks, but upgradeable
- Very large and helpful user forum (insanelywind)
- Handles everything i can throw at it
- highly portable
- Wireless B/G/N
- looks fairly normal
- fn and ctrl keys are swapped around
- 9 cell battery pack weighs more then the netbook.
For anyone thats looking for a netbook i cant reccomend this enough, why pay more for less?
This does everything the high end netbooks do (sony viao, dell mini) has the exact same specs but is up to £100+ cheaper and you can use the money you have saved to upgrade it like i have.
Summary: A great little netbook for an amazing price, the best you will get.
