Every review that questions the speed of this netbook perplexes me. It does everything I want to to with normal speed. I use Firefox, Skype, Steam, iTunes, Pidgin, Thunderbird and all of them work perfectly and load up in a matter of seconds. I am dual booting Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Remix and even that work really well. The only hardware that didn't work right after install Ubuntu was the Wi-Fi adapter. I was able to find drivers and install that easily and I am new to Linux. On Ubuntu, I was able to get Skype, Pidgin, and Thunderbird installed in addition to what comes with Ubuntu (Firefox and others). On Windows 7, I am running Steam and on there I have been able to run games like Plants vs Zombies, Flight Control HD, Doom 1&2, Star Wars Jedi Knight series. It actually surprises me that this netbook can play Half Life 2 and Doom 3 at low settings pretty smoothly. If you are looking for a machine to play games made after 2005, you should not buy this machine, but if you are looking for something to be very portable this is a great machine. The power plug is a standard 3 prong power plug that is small enough to take up only one socket on a power strip. My only complaint with the keyboard is that the Caps Lock key does not have a light on it that indicates if Caps Lock is on or not, but Dell has a program install that tells on the monitor if Caps Lock is switched on or off. My biggest complaint with the track pad is that the left and right click buttons seem flimsy, but I haven't found anything online saying that anyone has had them break.

Great netbook for portable web browsing and media use.

i am really happy with the laptop. I got it for my elder sister who writes novels and is always on the go. this fits perfectly in her handbag and with a battery life of 5-6 hours she can work at ease anywhere. Overall good buy. Value for money.

While the function of the netbook is exactly as expected, there is one detail which significantly reduces the quality of the product. In order to access the RAM, one must remove everything from the bottom portion of the netbook. That is, the keyboard, paneling, mouse-pad, and almost all SATA cords must be removed to simply upgrade RAM. This is dissimilar to previous versions of Dell netbooks, as they (and many other brands) have a an easy access tab to remove on the bottom. I purchased this netbook with the intention of upgrading the memory, but will not do so at the strong possibility that it may never reassemble correctly.

Poor choice, Dell. For a company who used to focus almost exclusively on upgrades, you've really missed the mark on this netbook.

The product page indicates that the resolution is 1366x768, but it is not. It is the standard 1024x600 netbook screen. I ordered this 3/01/11 from Amazon for the better screen (as compared with similarly priced units locally), but upon arrival, the resolution was not as stated. All other specs seemed to match, but they are pretty standard across all brands. As always, Amazon was happy to accept the return given the error.

At first, the idea of having a small computer didn't fancy me too much. I thought that it wouldn't work as well as a 15' or 20'. I was wrong! I love this computer and it works just as well as the others! Its size has made it easier for me to travel with, and I take it everywhere, I mean EVERYWHWERE!!! I think it's the perfect fit for someone who doesn't want a really huge laptop. Everything is of great quality on my dell and I am really glad I made the decision to buy it.

I upgraded to 2 gigs of memory (Crucial) using the U Tube video for guidance and it was fairly easy. I added memory because I hook up the netbook to my TV to watch streaming video of cable shows.

I got rid of DirecTv and dropped to basic-basic cable. With the netbook I can watch all the streaming video of cable networks I no longer get (using wifi. Only USA has some stuttering while all the rest (like A&E) run smoothly. Only problem is with the lesser resolution of the netbook, the picture does not fill the screen so with my 42" HD set it shows about a 32" picture. But that is a minor issue.

As far as general use,I have taken it on several trips, use it at meetings,the wifi works fine, battery life is excellent, with the extra ram it is fast and easy to use. I use it many times a week and have yet to be disappointed with its performance.

Overall, I liked this computer, but there were a few cons...

Cons
~I expected this to be fast, but it is slower than a computer should be. Not to slow, but slow enough to get a bit annoying.
~No CD drive! Most netbooks don't have one, but just so your warned! You can find some pretty inexpensive external CD drives for a netbook on amazon though.
~Skype freezes a TON!

Pros
~Little notch in the back where you can hold the computer one handed while walking around.
~Keyboard is not too much smaller than a regular keyboard
~Light. Very very light!
~Mouse works well.
~Comes with skype.

I like my computer very much, and I'm using it for pictures and for school so i can do all of my Home Work at school or in the car on the way home. :)

UPDATE: My computer crashed, and my mom had gotten a memory update for me. When we sent my computer back, my mom put the memory upgrade card in the box. She talked on the phone for HOURS and finally they said that they would install the upgrade. When I got the computer back, it was still sloooooooow, but a bit faster. AND THEY DIDN'T INSTALL THE UPGRADE!!! My mom had talked on the phone for hours for nothing. They also took the memory update out of its package and took the instructions. We had to look it up on UTube on how to install it. So annoying! It still is painfully slow most of the time, but I like it anyway. I wouldn't really suggest it to anyone. If you were looking at it while it wasn't on, it would be the perfect computer, but when it's on, it's a dissapointment.
