5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, 8 Jan. 2012
I asked for one of these as an Xmas present after deciding it would be better value than a tablet, and have not been disappointed.

I replaced the RAM with 2GB, a very simple install, just unscrew the cover on the back.

I like a smooth running machine so set the graphics to windows classic settings with high performance options chosen over those that are graphically intensive. I also remove all but essential software.

The keyboard is great, nicely spaced out keys and easy to type on. The screen and sound are also great, for the price. Would recommend for basic tasks, although I wouldnt rely on it as my only machine.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good desktop replacement, 8 Jan. 2012
I bought this laptop as a replacement for my parents ageing desktop machine. Both use it for basic emailing, web browsing, storing photos but wanted something a little smaller.

The keys work well, spaced out better than most laptops (the same keyboard setup as my Samsung netbook).

The screen and sounds are also very high quality for the price.

Windows 7 is fast and smooth, and the pre-loaded version of Office works well enough despite being the free version with ads on the side.

1 area to remember when purchasing is this isnt the latest model, so as well as getting a low price, the system will also have plenty of Windows updates to install during the first few weeks of use. Be prepared for a few reboots and slight slow-down while all the upddates are downloaded, but dont let it put you off.

I use the machine with basic theme settings and only keep essential software installed to keep it running tip-top.
