In the US this became an Amazon best-seller after being on the market barely a day and having had mine for 12 hours now you can understand why.
The first thing that strikes you is that it is totally silent. There's is no fan or disk drives whizzing round like on a conventional lap-top and, for me, it is a very calming computer to use.
Secondly it boots up in just seven seconds and on top of that there is the added bonus that you don't have to be concerned about soft-ware updates or daily reminders from Microsoft to install their Bing desktop and the like. That's all done for you "in the cloud".
Thirdly it is lovely to work on.The keyboard and track-pad are a dream and it just feels very comfortable as you type.
Fourthly it has a fast web-browser that wipes the floor with my old bigger lap-top with twice as much RAM. With all the software operating "in the cloud" there is more processing power for the key function, web browsing.
The main downside is that the screen is not as good as computers costing several times as much. But it's not bad. You have to play about with the angle and it is perfectly acceptable.
The set-up is dead simple.
I bought this because I wanted a super-lightweight unit for travelling. It is so nice to use I can see it becoming my main computer.
