As it has no fan it can heat up when running intensive tasks, such as installing lots of updates when you first start. I was aware of this and so I rested it on a picnic freezer bar for the initial installation and had no problems. I would not consider using it for video edting etc and have had no issues with overheating anyway.
It is a very neat little laptop, with a larger screen than a similar priced tablet, and my wife often uses it for web browsing when we are sitting outside having a drink. The younger generation would probably be using their smartphone for this, but they pay a lot more for the equipment and connection, and their screen is much smaller..
Then I read a review by a student who said that by dedicating an SDHC 8GB card to a function called "ReadyBoost" you could increase the RAM availability up to 4-5 GB of RAM.
Well, it wasn't as easy as she made it sound but I got there..... and now have a netbook equal to others who've paid twice , three times what I did ! I forsee that once this 'anomily' becomes common knowledge, these babies are gonna fly of the shelves. My advice ? DON''T MISS OUT.
This is the best value for money this side of Jupiter !
Ps. See the student write up after the prod descrip on the website.
So my requirement in this case was for something that had the portability of a tablet but could also handle some of the functions of a "proper" computer, such as running office software. Ultimate performance wasn't high on my agenda, I just wanted something that would be good enough to do a bit of web browsing, word processing etc., hence I looked at the cheaper end of the market - when I picked mine up, it was in fact the cheapest netbook being offered on Amazon.
When it first arrived there was a fair amount of bloatware to get rid of, but apart from that I haven't done anything to improve the performance, and it is perfectly adequate for carrying out the fairly basic PC tasks that I ask of it. It can be slow to load programmes but once running they are generally fine. It does struggle a bit with video playback - even SD YouTube videos aren't as smooth as they could be. I wouldn't want to rely on this as my only media player, but in my case that was never the intention.
The keyboard is quite good to type on, although due to the small size perhaps not the most comfortable to spend hours bashing away at. The screen is perfectly acceptable as well - it's not the sharpest but it does the job. It remains to be seen how dirt-resistant the all-white body is - it has the potential to look grubby after a while, although that hasn't happened to mine yet. Battery life seems reasonable too. I haven't tried running it down to nothing, but it seems you can get a good 3 hours or so out of a full charge before the battery meter starts to look like it's getting low. For me I'd be unlikely to need to use it for longer than that in a place with no access to a plug, so this is fine.
Overall I'd recommend this product, with the caveat that you need to be realistic about what you expect from it. If all you want to do is a bit of web browsing and word processing then there's no need to spend any more; if you do want more out of your machine then there probably is.
It's also worth pointing out that when I picked mine up I paid about £180 for it, which made it the cheapest model available at the time. At the time of posting this review though the price of the cheapest available seems to have crept up to £210, with others going for as much as £250. At those prices I'm fairly confident there are more powerful models available for the same money, so I would shop around.
