"A Beautiful Disaster. Paralyzing Performance."2.0 starson by silvershox
Pros: solid. sleek. pretty good keyboard. good resolution. pretty good display.
Cons: no performance.VIA cpu paralyzes performance. ram and other add-ons bumps price to non-bargain prices.
Summary: i was really disappointed when this thing was coming with a via cpu. the 2gb ram is nice to have, but the via cpu cripples the performance. im sorry to say, but when using the computer, the last thing i care about is the appearance of the casing. the most important thing is what is on the display and how long you have to wait till progress appears. the $500 price tag is reasonable to start with, but to add windows and 2gb ram bumping up the price to almost 800 is absurd! i might as well carry a used 13 inch xps for that price!
the only choice for a true bargain sub-notebook at around $500-$700 is the 9 inch eee. better performance, cheaper price.
if HP upgrades the cpu to actually become useable, i'll reconsider. till then, this is just another rotten apple sprayed with air freshener.
