The VX6 is a nice small laptop, a little litle the Sony Vao one I had many years ago, but at a fraction of the price. It has a great keyboard and the screen is bright enought for most uses, except outside in bright sunlight. The atom process is, however, somewhat slow. The VX6 needs a 2GB ram upgrade (about 25 euros) in addition to the 2GB it comes fitted with. There is no information in the product manual to tell you how to do this, but you simply unscrew the flap at the bottom and put in another 2GB SO-DIMM. The logo on the top is the somewhat dissapointing in that it would have been soo nice to have had it in metal, set into the plastic.
As for battery life it is quite good at around four hours. It, however, took me several days just to download an install all the Windows 7 updates. You would have thought someone could have done this already for the customer. One other complaint. The hard drive is not accessable without taking the whole thing apart which voids the warranty. However, with a 500GB drive, this is not so much of an issue.
Overall I quite like the machine. As a netbook it's quite good. As a laptop, it's easily outclassed in processor and graphics performance by similar priced machines, but in a much larger form factor. The ASUS 1215 is a very similar netbook, but without the nice styling of the VX6. However, for the rather small price difference, I'd rather have the VX6.
