Advantages: Light and easy to use
Disadvantages: Battery power
My partner bought the Toshiba Netbook for me as a christmas present after my old laptop had died on me.
When looking at it I was impressed with it's sleekness although I knew netbooks were small I didn't realise they could be this stream line. The top is a black gloss which looks modern and sleek and overall the netbook is incredibly light, this is great as I will sometimes take my laptop with me and so its nice and easy to carry and even fits into some of my bags which is even better! And of course if your sat down for ages with it on your knee it doesn't hurt or feel heavy at all!
When open the netbook has a good size screen and everything on it is nice bright and more importantly clear. It then has the buttons and the mouse pad underneath. The mouse pad is brilliant so much so I wouldn't bother in purchasing a mouse to connect to it. The pad reacts accurately and is quite fast at moving around the page which I love!
You also have the charger port at the back of the computer and unfortunately this is one way in which the netbook lets itself down is the battery power. I find it will only last a couple of hours before dying on me so it's usually always plugged into the socket, so wouldn't be great if you have to go out and about for the day.
Another thing I didn't realise when I got the netbook is that it doesnt have a dvd drive this is sometimes annoying as I usually get pictures on cd's but then cant download them onto the netbook. So if you are a user of CDs/DVDs on your laptop then this probably isn't the netbook for you although you can get an external dvd drive but I never got round to buying one.
The memory of the computer is 250gb and I have found this more then ample as I have music, films and photos all downloaded onto it and it is yet to say I have not got enough memory so I am very pleased with it.
The netbook also has a web-cam which is very useful as I often use Skype to talk to friends and it also comes with the Windows 7 starter version.
Overall I would say that this is a good netbook especially for its price and it does everything you would want it to.
Summary: Good netbook
