Customer Review

on 28 December 2011
While many people are professionals and know exactly what specification they need when they go into a shop or buy a laptop online, there are many of us that aren't. For most people, the restriction when buying a laptop is the price. With the Meenee MNW737, which is white and costs £250, or the MNB737, which is black and costs £225, the price suddenly doesn't become the first thing you should look at. With the Meenee, you'd expect a cheap processor or a lack of memory, but these sleek, thin, sexy-looking laptops are pretty good inside.

There is a 2GB RAM of memory, a 320GB hard drive and plentiful compared to many more expensive laptops, and there is a single core 1.66GHz Intel Atom processor; sounds good so far? The screen is 13.1", so it's no wide screen laptop but it's ideal for travelling, carrying around with you to meetings or heading to the park and playing on games. It's only 1.2kgs so it will easily slot into a bag or handbag and will be barely noticeable. For those that will use it outdoors and at cafés etc, there is a 6-cell Lithium-ion battery that lasts 3.5 hours and is more than enough.

The case itself is only 18mm thick with the lid closed, which is almost Mac Book Air size, and whether you buy it in white or black, it looks cool. You must be thinking why is it so cheap but it sounds so good. Well, other similar specification laptops will be around £350-400, but the Meenee comes with one last trick up its sleeve; it doesn't have Windows. Now, don't panic, it's not the end of the world. Microsoft is just one company, yet has a monopoly over the operating systems that are on computers, but there are others that are just as good or even better and have less faults than even the latest offerings from Windows.

Ubuntu is the operating system of choice, which is a Linux based system. It is easy to use, does not consume energy and power so much as Windows programs and it is simple yet devastatingly effective. Designs and computer boffins around the world use it but it's actually so simple to use and even easier than Windows that it's surprising that computer manufacturers don't use it more often. It's updateable, for free, and comes with tonnes of programs and applications and millions more are downloadable. It really has a myriad of things it can do. For complete Windows fans, it might take a day or two to get used to Ubuntu.

So, when you want a slim laptop that is cheap, has a good specification and a long battery life, then the Meenee in either black or white is ideal. It's light enough and cheap enough to carry around with you, take to school, college or use socially and have laptop that is around 40% cheaper than everyone elses! And, it has Bluetooth and wireless so you can easily connect wherever there is a signal.
