I am no computer wizz, but I bought this compact little netbook to run as a secondary computer to my Desktop PC. I love it. Rather than sit in isolation in the study I can sit anywhere and surf on line, write emails or whatever. It really is quite superb with a surprisingly good speed, even though we live in a small village. Its battery life is brilliant and it has a crystal clear screen. I really can't fault it. I have bought the 2GB memory to upgrade, but haven't seen a need (plus I'm not really sure how to do it!) Some reviews were less than positive about the Windows 7 starter. I have NO PROBLEMS with it whatsoever and cannot priase this little wonder enough! Well; done Samsung!! Thank you Amazon!!
