Ordered the captioned item. Received ahead of time and exactly as described. The netbook has worked perfectly right out of the shipping box. WIFI connection was a piece of cake. Clicked on the WIFI icon, put in the info required, and poof! there it was - connected to my WIFI network without a hitch. An excellent product you will enjoy if you are familiar (or are willing to become familiar) with Android OS systems and you are NOT a narrow-minded Windows user who's scared to death to try a different OS that's refreshingly new and does not hog resources unnecessarily with idiotic "services" and/or "processes"running in the background. Otherwise, and if you are willing to learn the Android world of tablets and netbooks, which doesn't really take much brain power, try this sleek-looking and superb netbook - it is an exceptional buy! Wolvol, kudos for an excellent product.

I have been using this little computer about six weeks, There are little games that are simple but entertaining, It has programs that will do most of what all other computers will do. I have not learned to print yet. But I can always remove the sd memory card & let another computer print the file.
There were three memo programs, one that is easy for a grocery memo, one secure, like for a diary, & another that seems complicated until you play with it for a while. I used my google account to sign in so google would allow me to download a KJV bible. I need one in every computer that I have. I also have a narrated version bible, on sd & it plays on the music file, with each chapter, another music file, just in case I want to listen instead of reading & It will play all the way to the end, until I turn it off.
Most of the time, I leave it hybernation, that way it dosent have to load android, it just starts up in seconds. It maybe takes a week to run it down in hybernation, but I am not sure, I never let it rest that much.
Some of the games work great, but to plug in the ge mouse, with a roll up usb cord, the computer plays games well & it works more like a real computer.
Today I found favorites & how it gets saved, for some websites are hard for this computer to deal with, so now I can find my yahoo in a simple version that works well. I never knew that yahoo had so many versions.
My friend tried it out & showed the pictures of the band that he played in on this little computer. If you get one, make sure that you get one that is sold by wolvol, they bend over backwards to satisy you, even if you dont have a problem.
Make sure that the solid drive is at least 4 gig, then you can get a sd memory card of 8 gig, or bigger to save programs that you download.
I thought the battery was suppose to be 1800ma but I had to look in the battery compartment & it was 2600, Hey I am not mad at all.
It is great for taking notes, it is very portable, & its fun. I play puzzles on it, I have my solitare, I have the number slide puzzle, with 9 or 16 spaces.
My grandson wants one too, he loves mine, but I like it too.
I paid $15 for the office suite, I love the spreadsheet, just like the big computers, & the calculator is regular, but then with the left click of the mouse, you can find scientific functions too. I also have extra games for grandson, he is only 7 years old & can do everything faster than i can.
I dont think that you can go wrong with this computer, so far it has been very good to me.
Before I got this Wolvol computer, I had a tablet, same version android 2.2, it was wonderful too, but only an on screen keyboard, so taking notes was very slow & inaccurate. It broke my heart when I dropped it. I could not turn it on, for the front window was touch sensitive, until I broke it. Now I discovered that the tablet has an adapter, & with usb, I put my Ge usb mouse on it, I can turn it on & have a pointer & the tablet works better than ever. I can do things that touch screen would not do. So do not throw your tablet away if you break the screen, try a mouse, put packaging tape on the screen, & enjoy a less frustrating world than ever. But the mouse still needs a table & It is a little less portable.
As far as the wolvol computer & the tablet,The mouse makes them much better.
I also discovered you can download a great bible on google play, I also got a good calendar with notes, I think it was a version for T mobile, but it is professional & very handy. Most of the games are free from android apps, that the computer directs you to in the beginning. They say that upgrades are better, but when you get a faster computer with a bigger program, you have gained nothing, but if you buy a dependable little computer, with small programs, downgrading is not all that bad. I leave it in hybernate, & it comes on instantly, maybe 3 seconds, Now that is upgrade.
