Great little machine with Mac-level battery life,
This review is from: Toshiba NB520-10R Intel Atom N570, 1GB, 250GB, 10.1", W7 Starter, Harman Kardon speakers, Bluetooth, Blue (Personal Computers)
I bought the 2GB memory suggested by Amazon and fitted it myself without any fuss whatsoever and have to say the machine works great. The battery life is brilliant compared to my larger Dell, and that's pretty good anyway. Very impressed with the hours of use you can get out of it.
Windows 7 Starter loads up much faster than previous operating systems, but was amazed to find you can't change the wallpaper. Massive error by Microsoft. A quick software download (Oceanis) and you can fix it easily.
Another thing that irritated me was the pre-installed Toshiba software... unnecessary. Delete, delete, delete.
Sound is brilliant from such a small device - great for watching internet TV/movies or listening to music while abroad.
Not the prettiest netbook, but it's not ugly and I'm very happy overall.
