great netbook great price


This netbook is great, i mainly use it to watch bluray rips, surf the web, netflix, and play games like starcraft 2 and devil may cry. In my opinion this laptop is built very well, and after upgrading the ram to 8gb its even faster. I have not had any...

The Good the Bad and the Ugly


The Good: Comes with Windows 7 Home and Full 720P resolution flat panel. Compact and light weight. Includes USB3 port. The Bad: Why windows 7 Home 64 bit version? Unit is limited to 4 GB memory. The processor is very slow. It took forever to load...

There are problems with this netbook


Well I had great expectations from this netbook. It functioned well for about a week and then the touch pad started to behave erratically. Stopped to move the mouse as directed, a click to open a link closed the page or flat out jumped to a different...

Better than a netbook.


I bought this for my wife to replace a 5yr old laptop that the battery died and always had to be plugged in. She just uses it for web apps and videos. I liked this unit because it wasn't a netbook and already had Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on it...
