Consumer review by: Brojamma (newegg.com)

Solid, Compact Notebook

 

I'll never understand people that give a product a bad review because they didn't read the description before they bought it. No - this machine does not include an optical drive. How often do you really need one? I'd rather save on bulk and not have...

This is exactly what I wanted - a compact notebook with decent performance. If it has all of the features you need (as it did for me) you can't go wrong. Well-built, not a single dead pixel, and the performance you would expect for a machine with these...

Nothing, really. Factory-installed operating systems are always an issue for me...but the first thing I did was format and put a fresh Windows 7 installation on. Really nothing to complain about

Light and Fast But 1 BIG Drawback

 

Bought this at big box store but they don't have reviews so posting here. Very nice and super portable but realized no CD drive when I tried to load the anti-virus software that their salesman talked me into! Also Speakers are the worst I've ever heard...

Feather light, long battery life, Webcam

No CD/DVD RW drive, Speakers, No two finger scroll
