Customer Review

on 9 October 2011
A great little netbook. Having used single-core variants the dual-core processor makes for a much better user experience, especially when coupled with a RAM upgrade (more on this later).

The keyboard is very useable for it's size, and the touchpad is very responsive. The touchpad accepts gesture-based input for operations like zooming and scrolling and whilst it takes a bit of getting used to it does come in handy.

The power supply comes in the form of a 'wall-wart' with a reasonably long cable. Its a universal transformer with detachable pin assembly for different countries, although only the UK assembly is included (it may be possible to purchase different country assemblies elsewhere).A nice feature, whether intentional or not, is that the wall-wart can be plugged into the mains socket with the bulk of the transformer either extending up or down. This means that it should be able to plug it in without fouling anything.

A word on the memory upgrade, it's more involved that normal laptops. You need to remove the keyboard by releasing latches along the top and then remove several screws from beneath where the keyboard was (these are labelled 'Door'). Finally you need to turn the laptop over and prise a plastic door off to gain access to the memory slot. I had to use much more force than feels necessary to do this which is very disconcerting!!! There are YouTube videos available but they aren't particularly clear.

In all I'm very pleased with the netbook and would highly recommend it to others.
