This is a really good product for the money. I am using it to write my review. It has a clear bright screen and a solid, proper but small keyboard. It is far easier to carry around than a laptop. It has a web browser called Bon Echo (which is a simplified version of firefox). There is a pdf viewer and a Word emulator that can read and write Word documents (though not perfectly). There is also a picture viewer and editor, and you can play music files with its speakers or headphones. It has a wireless connection that works fine. You use a USB stick to transfer files to/from your desktop. You can download more software from the cnm website. Battery life is about 3 hours. Dont be put off by the "Linux" system. The software is all very easy to use. Of course there are some niggles and limitations - many of the features you normally have are not available and it is sometimes slow. But overall I am very happy with it.
