really good buy. Notable weakness, it's very noisy. Fan is activated most of the time. Operates at very cool temperatures....would even sacrifice some more heat to have less noise. Video performance goes up to 720p, working even from a USB. Cannot run 1080p. Does come with only 2.0 USB (perhaps would nice and not expensive to have that upgraded). In my case, it came with a free USB CD-DVD-RW drive , don't know if that is always the case Fun tip: PG Up/Down is FN+up/down arrow (not written on the keys).

This netbook will handle almost anything I throw at it and it will even make a decent showing at things I don't expect it to do well at. I have run visual studio 2010 while having 6 tabs open in chrome and 2 open in firefox with no problems. It will struggle to do any sort of gaming. If that is something that you are concerned with then I would look elsewhere. If you anticipate screen glare being a problem where you will be using the laptop then I would suggest looking at the lenovo with this processor.
