Editors Didn't Like

  • Bare bones model has none of the niceties, Performance is slow
  • Slow performer
  • Incredibly slow; would happily have paid the extra $12 for another gig of RAM. Ultraflat keyboard makes touchtyping massively errorridden. We had forgotten that Windows 7 Starter Edition actually existed. Pretty darn ugly
  • Touchpad issues, Mediocre performance
  • Slightly More Expensive Than Similar Equipped Netbooks, While Battery Life Is Improved, Still Slightly Below Average For Six Cell
  • Touchpad can be oversensitive, Problems making Skype calls, Annoying Norton pop-ups
