5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect little laptop 29 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
I wanted a small and simple laptop that I can use to complete word and excel documents for my various projects and I must say I am delighted with this product.

At 11.6 inches it sits comfortably on my lap. I was very surprised at how lightweight it is! Noiseless, sleek and sturdy case I am pleased with the quality of it. I paid for this whilst it was on sale and it has gone up since. I'm sure it will go in to sale again and if it does you'll buy a good bargain with this machine.

Without using power draining apps or watching videos/listening to music you can get between 2 - 3 hours on one battery charge just by simply browsing the internet. The charger that is supplied is small and ideal for people who don't want to carry much. I've had the Ideapad sat on my lap now for an hour and it hasn't overheated but be aware the vent on the net book is at the back of the bottom panel. If you sit crossed legged (like I do) and rest the ideapad on your lap then it will cover this vent.

The laptop does not have a CD drive which may be a problem for some but you can pick up an external one for about £8 on Amazon if you need one.

I haven't used the Quick Start feature - I don't feel that I want to really because Windows 7 (supplied) does load quick enough for me. Programs are quick to load and the computer doesn't struggle with having a video/music playing and copying/pasting/running files/programs etc at the same time. With the AMD Radeon HD graphics card and 4GB RAM I can play a lot of online games (from Steam) without issue!

If you want a nice laptop that is simplistic, simple to use and reliable then go for this model. If you want something that is more media and games focused then I suggest you look elsewhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good for the money 20 Jan 2013
By Meic
Verified Purchase
I bought this to replace an 8-year old JVC Mininote, still going but showing its age and starting to fail. The JVC managed to pack 6+ battery hours, a DVD drive and a replaceable battery into 1.4 Kg - surely one of the best examples of design ever. This has a battery that's not user-replaceable and lasts 3-4 hours between charges, and no optical drive so I bought a Samsung SE-208 to go with it. The keyboard is comfortable to type on (though no numeric keypad), and the screen is excellent. There are only two USB ports, on opposite sides of the case, which could be a limitation. The touchpad is good, but I prefer a mouse, which immediately ties up one of the USB ports. The AMD dual core processor is quite fast enough for what I need (which includes some heavy statistical number crunching). The video memory is shared, which slows some geographical information system operations (not a concern for most users, I know). The RAM is as much as a 32 bit processor can address. The 320GB hard disk is more than enough for my needs, The machine does not come pre-loaded with crapware (hooray!). Web access speed seems the same as any other machine, being principally dependent on the broadband connection not the pc on the end.

I bought it it Amazon's New Year sale, and at that price (under 200 GBP) you get a lot of machine for your money. At non-sale price there's a lot of competition out there, but this must still be a top contender. It's too early, of course, to make any assessment of reliability.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good little laptop 14 April 2013
By Hugo
Verified Purchase
Can't really say anything bad really. Only real issue is that the battery life could be better.

You get a lot for your money considering.

I only really use the laptop however for the internet and downloading so could really ask for much more.

Its still quite light and looks cool. If you want a laptop to do more than what I use it for then I would get something else.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Laptop 14 Feb 2013
This product is great for anyone who needs a small and portable laptop. It looks lovely and Is surprisingly slim aswell. However it is a little slow and is set up with a number of annoying and useless programs which kept popping up and making changes to your settings. Luckily you can delete them but it was a hassle. Overall it is super and I enjoy using it. Great for students.
