amazing for netbook performance, because. . . . the battery it's Powerfull
Good: Sound, startup/sleep time
Bad: Not too much
Comment: This is a nice little netbook, but if you like the frame around your screen to stay unscratched you should choose another netbook as the keys leave a tiny little graze when the netbook is closed - even gently.
You should also choose another netbook if you like watching anything with a higher resolution than 720p as it pixelates quite badly - maybe if you're more tech-savvy you can change settings in VLC player or select another player which uses more memory to play video files...
The speakers rattle too, not when music is playing, but if you're carrying the netbook around, the speaker 'cones' don't seem to be set very firm, perhaps this is a requirement for this type of speaker...but they rattle annoyingly.
Startup, sleep & shut down happens nice and quickly though.
The frame scratching isn't such a problem for me because I use this netbook in my workshop, my little boy chats with his nanny on the other side of the world too so it was never going to stay new-looking.
Overall not bad.
Good: Processor type, Bluetooth 3.0, Screen, nice colours and Battery life.
Bad: None until now
Comment: What about multi touch keypad ???
