Best netbook on the market
on July 25, 2015
Best netbook on the market! Solid, rugged and inexpensive. I'm a frequent traveler and the size of this netbook (10" screen) allows me to keep it in my travel bag rather than pull it out every time at the airport security. It's a thick netbook, but that's what helps make it solid.
It's not for gamers. It's a great computer for email, websurfing, webshopping and such. The keyboard is large for a netbook and I love it 10X more than my first netbook ASUS EEE PC, again, used for traveling. Battery life is good; about 3 hours of use or all day just sitting closed up, but on.
My first Latitude 2120 (no camera) was bought used last February for about $100. Not bad for a computer that was once priced at over $600.
After several months of heavy usage, the connection to the screen began to wear where I'd have to jostle it to get it to light up. I loved the computer so much not only did I buy a second, but because these are used machines and no longer made by Dell, I bought two.
Now using the second one. On this one, the keyboard has a weak-spot in the top middle and is more sensitive to fat palms touching the touchpad. I use a wireless mouse, so maybe I should just turn off the computer touchpad.
