Great netbook. Windows 7 o/s plus a number of trial products are pre-loaded.

This product is shipped without a wrapper / box (i.e. Amazon ship in the product's original box, please note if ordering as a gift or as a surprise). Arrived undamaged.

Product is shipped with UK power adaptor, cleaning cloth and Targus netbook case (note: this is big enough for the netbook, but not the power adaptor as well). There are a number of generic booklets included, not much use if this is your first PC, but easy enough to pull out the relevant sections if it isn't.

The configuration of the netbook was quick, although it did take a number of shutdowns / power ons to finally get all the Windows 7 updates installed. Connectivity to the home wi-fi worked first time (our router auto-configures between 802.11 b/g/n).

For the money, great value and still very happy with the product after a few weeks of surfing the internet - haven't used anything any other than Internet Explorer.

Great value for money and everything worked fine out of the box. And it came with a protective wallet, which I hadn't expected. But I soon realised that for serious work it needs 2GB of memory, not the 1GB as supplied. I easily found a replacement memory card, though it wasn't so easy to work out how to take the netbook apart to fit the new memory. Packard Bell were distinctly unhelpful. [Lift out the keyboard using a credit card around the top & side edges - then remove three internal screws as instructed on etched markings inside to release the bottom cover - then unclip the old memory card and insert the new one]. Beware that the S/P-014 has a small 3-4hr battery. If I'd noticed this I'd have selected the slightly more expensive model with a longer-life 7-8hr battery. Otherwise I'm very impressed by the netbook.

I bought this netbook as I wanted something a bit more girly than the usual boring black box and I liked the pattern on the glossy cover.I also own a Packard Bell laptop and have not had any problems. Once I opened the box I found that the design is on both the front and back which is different and extends the look of the netbook.
It's really neat and compact which you would expect from a netbook but noticeaably slimmer than some I have seen.
Other than that the unit performs well and I can keep in touch with my friends on facebook easily using the "social network button"!! If I connected to my WiFi network at home I just press this button and all of my contacts come up and tell me whether they are online.
Overall I really like this netbook , it looks great and is portable which is good if I want to show friends and family any photo's I have stored. By the way this netbook also has a memory card reader so its very easy to transfer images from a camera that uses an SD card. Well recommended.

This little netbook was so easy to configure, I am slightly technophobic (have had a Toshiba laptop that had to be returned, and an eMachine XP netbook and neither were as easy to set up as this) It's fast (and shiny), not had a moments' hassle with it, I'm in love!!
Got it slightly cheaper than the price advertised now so bargain. Just love it

I purchased two for my sister and niece, purely for the fact they just wanted internet access for facebook, skype and for my niece, school work. For the price we think it is good value, they received the items well packaged, and setting up was easy. A very neat and stylish netbook, they are well happy with the item.

Slowest netbook on the Market and virtually impossible to upgrade the RAM from 1GB. Far far too slow that using Windows 7 bores you to tears and makes you want to throw it across the room. Why not make these with a RAM flap like Samsung so you can update it easily as it was slow out of the box with nothing loaded on it and impossible to use within 2 weeks once you put stuff on it. Totally useless and frustrating to use within 3 weeks so why sell these with Windows 7 on them when the processing power is not up to the job. I would never ever buy another Packard Bell again.

All works well and ideal as it was a gift to introduce my wife to use of a computer. One criticism, but shared by many others, is that it really would benefit from 2 GB of RAM if you have graphics on screen and the machine is busy downloading updates - gets a bit slooooow! Other than that, all fine (it's made by Acer) I've put 7 Home Premium on it (the OS is actually there and you buy a key to turn it all on, quite cheap) This was a good attractive buy...

I have a main desktop computer fixed in the home with a wireless router and broadband. I travel a fair amount and was looking for a small portable device that I could use on the move. It had to have Wi Fi access and preferably a web cam, microphone and speakers to enable me to use Skype. This product fitted the bill perfectly. The price was right, it arrived on time and works as expected. Being a keen photographer the addition of Photoshop Elements 8 as standard was a huge bonus, as was Amazons offer at the time of a cheap upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium.

The processor is a bit slow compared to my desktop but you cannot expect the same performance out of such a small unit, you get used to it and it is not a problem.

I am extremely pleased with my purchase.
