"Great lightweight notebook with graphics"4.5 starson by misterb13
Pros: You actually have a screen unlike a netbook that displays the full web page. Battery life is excellent. Lightweight, you can hold it in one hand. If you travel a lot this one is great for schlepping through airports, business meetings, and security.
Cons: Touchpad is cheap. tracking is a little off, I use an external mouse if doing a lot of work. Have not had the power cord problems mentioned. Cord is lightweight compared to others.
Summary: I carry this laptop and an IPAD and they are both still less weight than a typical 13" to 16" laptop with power cord. Great screen and graphics for a $500 laptop. Speed is fine for Microsoft Office type programs. Exterior case is not prone to scratching like others. No problems after 5 months of use. I figure if you get 2 years use out of a $500.00 laptop you are still ahead of the game compared to others.
