Good: looks good and handling is easy.
Bad: very very slow.... not sure is it because of W7 os
Comment: I won this system more than 15 months...
It seems its performance is going down in a gradual manner. I'm not sure why, because it is running on INTEL Atom. My friends are telling it is because the processor which is not capable of running W7. Is that true? can I opt for Win XP. Can anybody suggest
Comment: The comments overall look good, well my school is providing us with this netbook for home and school use, for £45. Not so sure because it will be different as the school is providing it.
Good: The performance
Bad: Not good to play games
Comment: My verdict of the netbook is that it's very fast and a good value for money. Specially surprising when you think that this has a dual core atom processor and 256 MB of video memory and good battery life.The weight and size of the netbook is very good and the keyboard is very chunky.I would definitely recommend it.If you like a computer that is capable of doing everything but bad at playing computer games.
Good: Performance, Keyboard, Start Up
Comment: This netbook is the best i ever had... Its so easy to get used too. Had to replace hard drive 2 times due to heat(dnt kno why). But it gets kind of hot on the left palm rest. I love the performance is just so awesome. Removed win 7 starter n replaced it with XP pro.. Keys are very great. i got used to it very fast. my typing is very fast. Cam is awesome, does not freeze on MSN, skype ETC.. Touch pad is kind of shinny(hate it). I am completly satisfied with the battery... Great for school use. Thats all i love about this netbook... Selling it bcuz im goin now to high school n i need something with more horsepower(performance) .. Just love it... Totally would recommend to a friend.. :) Very satisfied.. :)
Good: Easy to use, simple
Comment: Great little unit for surfing the web. Easy to use... Easy to set up. We currently use it to control our MagicJack phone line. It is on constantly, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
Good: Lightweight with plenty of features!
Bad: Android not worth bothering with yet!
Comment: Needed something lightweight to take on trips without breaking the bank or my back, fits the bill perfectly Â£189 from Argos with free matching wireless mouse.
Generous 250gb HDD and adequate 1GB memory and a keyboard even my huge mits have no problem using, battery life around 3 hours just enough for my needs between power points!
Comment: We have a number of these on our website - including Black, White, Red and the Happy range (Purple, Green, Pink)
We get great feedback from our customers but it does seem a lot of places confuse customers by not stating the processor is Dual Core. In fact we receive a number of emails from potential customers querying whether the processor is Dual Core - as some sites are stating it is only a single core N550 processor.
Good: Keyboard, camera, slim size, weight
Bad: touchpad scrolling kinda not good, plastic feel, not the best design, processor
Comment: There are now more better processors than atom, i'l recommend you better choose AMD for netbooks plus they are cheaper. The new AMD E350 processor is the best right now for netbooks coz it already has a graphics chip along the processor so it is better for a little advance 3D, gaming perhaps.. ASUS is the best choice for netbooks with cheaper cost and great quality.. ASUS 1015B or 1215B is the new model with AMD E350.. 1215B has a12inch screen which is what i wanted coz its a little bigger than the tiny 10inch display which i hate.
Good: spec for the price! (dual core, hdd size, camera, screen quality etc)
Comment: If u want a netbook to surf the web, listen to music, watch tvplayers ,utube etc. their is nothing better for the same money! ( In my opinion.).. Other net books are available...
Good: battery life is brill!
Comment: looks stylish and windows 7! SWEET! this is awsome and is so worth buying from pc world as its cheapest there!
