"Awesome surprise"5.0 starson by saojorgeofrio
Pros: Battery life - yes you can work 7-8 hours day. With HDSPA or WiFi on.
Screen - Beautiful 16x9 screen.
Ultra thin and lightweight -
4 GB of DDR3
Upgrade to WIndows 7
Cons: Come with Mcaffee which slow down machine(after first update). Remove it and install Kaspersky and it will fly.
Summary: I was skeptical about Core 2 Solo U3500 performance but it works remarkable well . I am a heavy Excel user , Adobe Framemaker and Microsoft Word . This notebook is the right tool for companies or individuals who work with internet-spreadsheet-wordprocessor trio and dont want to spend a lot of money with Macs or Sonys. Dont expect play Halo or Crysis or "convert tons of video formats" .
Its 200 bucks more expensive than any netbook and imho worth every single dime because of screen , RAM and battery life.
