Good: Design, lightweight
Comment: This is a brilliant finish described as 'HOT PINK'. Its a neat and convenient way of doing simple tasks like surfing. Its runs fine when used with the battery only. However, if I run it from the mains, the mains adapter and the underneath of the netbook get mega hot!!! There appears to be adequate ventilation and I can hear the fan operating. I have found that this overheating leads to a fault that prevents the netbook from being switched on until it has cooled down!!!
Now I am using this netbook from the mains only with the battery removed and have found that the adapter does not get hot at all and the netbook has only a moderate area of warmth where the mains power enters the device. I have had no further problems with this approach.
