It Does EXACTLY what is says it will do!
on July 9, 2014
does everything it says, I do not think it is compatible for downloading Skype but I haven't finished looking into that. It does have a Talk IM feature. It streams without stuttering but it is wise to fully charge it first if you take it on the go. DO not open gmail with an existing gmail account unless you are sure you want to keep it on there, that's the only "con" I see, along with using the mouse that comes with it so your cursor moves around more faster. The Gmail is just like on an actual Droid phone, you cannot log out. If it's a business gmail that you don't care if it stays open then it's a non-issue for you. If it's a personal gmail then you need to be aware of who else will have access to the netbook. I am still discovering where to create a login when powering it on too. Right now when you power on out of the box it goes straight to the desktop. You cannot de-select the icons on the desktop, nor can you move them. However, you CAN slide that frame to the left just like the frames on the home screen of a droid so you see a plain "desktop." Netflix rocks as well as Youtube to watch videos; however not all embedded videos in a website will stream. For example I went to my school website to watch a teacher clip but it would not load. This netbook is great to have videos or movies playing, check mail, launch the browser to research IF you are ON THE GO, or in a small space like an RV on travel or in a kitchen cooking and want a movie on the side or a cooking show. IT's an "on the go" tool that gives you a bigger window than your android mobile phone and allows you to read as a kindle as well for large pdfs...the speaking headset feature also works just like a regular pc --you can connect speakers, headset, mic etc; I use my droid head set that has earbuds with a mic and plug into the 1 headset outlet. IT is VERY light so if you are a girl it's great to put in your purse. Mine came very very clean, with a black velvet storage pouch and mouse. It does EXACTLY what it was designed to do --so for travel I recommend it GREATLY. no bulky laptop for seminars, meetups, saying hi to a follow-up prospect at a Starbucks, or campus library. If you need a porsche though for performance, document management, design, etc; keep your full size laptop and get a quality laptop shuttle to spare your back future pain. I would recommend this for it's ON the GO and background movies when you are on the main pc too!
