I wouldn't call it the most sophisticated tech I ever bought, but after downloading Microsoft Office Home and Student (purchased separately), it's an affordable option that meets my needs. I think that's the key to any technology purchase--know your needs. Mine are emailing, writing, research, surfing, shopping, socializing, and other pretty low-level uses. If these are your needs as well, this is the machine for you.

I purchase this after getting a used acer 10.1" netbook and found the keyboard to small to do any real typing on it. This netbook has a fantastic 11.6" display that gives sharp video playback. The keyboard is good size and allows for easy typing. The weight and size make it very easy to carry around. On the negative side I wish the battery held a better charge and the touchpad can be a little over sensitive. I ended up getting a wireless mouse which solve my problem with the touchpad which I think is more me than the netbook. I have my netbook set up to dual boot into Windows 8 & Linux Mint 13. Overall I'm very happy with my purchase.

This compact computer is efficient for simple needs such as surfing, letters, blogging and a few hidden games/solitaire. I love the color (Red) and how lightweight it is. I loaded StarOffice (thanks amazon) as not to purchase another expensive license. Star office is compatible with all office programs and it works similar to office XP (good enough for me). I digress, battery life is efficient for me and my needs. I purchased my system through Wal-Mart during a sale for $198.00 which is what I think this system is worth. Not good for high powered games or extensive wear and tear. Further, I hate Windows 8 - who tested that thing. Its awful and after experiencing it on this computer, I'm definitely not upgrading even if they gave it to me for free. In addition, I agree with the mouse pad being sensitive and did exactly what another rater did, purchased a mouse and disabled it. It's a little slow to start and shut down - hopefully, upgrading memory will help that.

All in all, I like my system. I took a star for Windows 8 - hated it...

This model was chosen for its combination of performance and price. It's great for home and small business use where portability is desired. Functions best with at least 4GB of memory (has 2GB stock). It's not good for high demand gaming as there isn't enough "horsepower". Battery life is about 4 hours, depending upon internet use. Complaints have been made about the wireless card dropping the signal frequently. My unit has the Broadcom wireless adapter. The driver provided is poor. Merely go to the Device Manager in Windows, select the Broadcom wireless 802.11n and replace the driver with the one provided by Microsoft (5.100.245.20). In addition, in the Power Options go to the Advanced portion and set the wireless adapter to "Maximum" on both battery and plugged in. This change avoids internet drops if the wireless is unused for several minutes. Very pleased so far - let's see what the future holds.
UPDATE Aug 2013. This unit functions well for business use using programs such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc. It slows a bit if several programs are open at once. If that's a task parameter you need, get the I5 processor version which my wife uses. Internet function is fine with very good range and no drops. As noted previously, it's not good for demanding games. Nice and light for traveling. I'd buy it again for sure.

I like this laptop. The new windows 8 is really difficult to navigate but acer gives you the option of the acer desktop which is what non-windows 8 users are used to. it is light, quick and compact and is perfect for blogging and drafting documents. A good buy and worth the money.

I am giving this little guy 5 stars because it has been performing for me in every way I need it to. I was in search of an inexpensive, small laptop to do some light web surfing/research and word processing. In the week that I've had it, I am very pleased!

The first thing I did after booting up the netbook (to make sure everything loaded up okay), was install more RAM ordered from the Crucial website, because they guarantee the correct size for your machine. This netbook only comes with 2 GB of RAM, which I was afraid wouldn't quite be enough to handle my multi-tasking. There is one 2 GB stick in one slot, and there is another slot that is empty. I upgraded to the max amount of 8 GB with two 4 GB sticks. The bottom plate was relatively easy to remove and the slots are there in the center, plain as day. I believe this will allow the netbook to run at its best.

The processor is weak, so boot up, shut down, and opening programs is going to take slightly longer than you're used to if you've been working on a newer desktop with a big, shiny processor. I don't need a super fast processor to play Diablo on this thing, so I can wait an extra second for load time. It doesn't bother me, because I expected it.

I am very pleased with the size of the screen and the keyboard - it feels almost like 100% of a regular keyboard. (I think maybe it's 92%? Not sure.) Sound quality and video playback from YouTube videos have been satisfactory. Not mind blowing, but no glitches either. Some reviewers have commented on the poor sound quality, but I don't have an issue with it.

On the negative, there are 3 issues:

1. The top of the machine has a shiny, glossy surface which is pretty, but attracts my grubby fingerprints like the dickens.
