"Great travel companion with good performance"4.5 starson by juanchovies
Pros: Portable, fast boot, webcam and bluetooth are great for videoconferencing with cell phone. WiFi range is good. Battery life is good. Very quiet operation. Good screen.
Cons: Junk software bundled should be removed. With XP and updates you have about 9 Gb of the 16 Gb SSD.
Summary: This sleek netbook satisfies most of my travel needs. With a 16Gb Sd card and my USB portable HDD I have all the storage needed. For $18 I purchased 2Gb RAM upgrade and it was a great investment. Installed Office XP, Prism 5, Photoshop 7, EndNote, Messenger, Skype and iTunes and I can do all the work I normally did on my low-end dual core laptop, except that I'm not looking for outlet after 2 hours and my load is much lighter through TSA checkpoints. Now I have workspace on my coach tray table and do not worry about screen damage by the front seat aggressive reclining. For what I do on the road it is perfect.
