This is exactly what I needed - lightweight, small and easy to carry without sacrificing screen quality and processing speed. The keyboard is extremely comfortable for its size, the screen crisp and clear. It's advertised mainly as a communication device for Web browsing, email and Skype but I've already put it through some serious software and graphics loads without a hiccup. I wasn't planning on using it for heavy-duty PC-like applications but it looks like it will be able to handle anything I...

I had wanted to get a netbook for a while - I use PCs at home and work, and wanted something budget-friendly for blogging and freelance writing on the go. I wanted a real keyboard, nothing virtual, and I cared more about battery life and reliability than apps and customization. After much research, I decided to get this Toshiba.I have had it for three weeks and it's everything I expected and wanted. I am typing on it right now! It's small, it's lightweight, it's relatively durable (I have a ...

A beautiful, sturdy, and pleasurably portable Netbook.Pros: Bright, crisp screen for it's size. Esthetically pleasing. Price effective as well as a trustworthy brand, now days is seems like a blind leap when buying a brand out there. Keyboard is sufficient, with quiet keys. (I hate keys that click like a type-writer!) lolCons: A single GOOGLE-CHROME window uses as mush 80+ percent of it's standard 1Gb RAM, so there's the first $64+ upgrade for one more Gb. Also you'll need it to run, assumin...

I had very much been wanting a netbook for some time so when my laptop's hard drive failed, I bought this at the local compusa. Ostensibly to aid in getting the new hard drive installed, in my 17" laptop; that might as well be a desktop for how portable it is. I'm really very happy with it. It's a great little machine for the money and I actually find that I can touch type with reasonable accuracy after just a couple days. I also love the touch pad, which is probably the first one I have ever ...

So far (I am somewhat a cynic) I am extremely pleased with this little gem. Although I have been receiving warnings from SKYPE that it is running slow, it still seems to make SKYPE calls OK. It also works very well with NETFLIX and the other routine functions (Word Processor, Spreadsheet, Internet of a PC (albeit, not as fast as my desktop with dual-core processor). I have to admit that I did not want to wait, so I bought it at BestBuy.

I have had this netbook for a few weeks now. All things considered, I am very happy with it. Since it is a netbook, it is not suitable for gaming or really anything very processor or memory intensive. But as a 2nd computer for travel or work, it's great.I was worried that with such little RAM it might be difficult to multitask and/or keep open multiple internet tabs, but it handled several Firefox windows with several tabs a piece just fine. It also showed no problems when I added playing music ...

Firstly, I recommend to hold off on purchasing memory until you actually receive the netbook. The netbook is being advertised as having DDR2 memory (typically 667 MHz, with a max of 800 MHz memory speed), but when I received the netbook, it came with DDR3 memory. This is actually a good thing, since DDR3 memory typically comes at a speed of 1066 MHz. Unfortunately, when I bought the netbook, I also purchased DDR2 memory from Beach Camera, and have not been able to contact them to return the DDR2...

I gave this 4 Stars, but I'll tell you what I dont like first. It cannot play back 720 or higher video. And, its playback of 480 is probably only ok by most people's standards. I'm a video engineer in Hollywood, and therefore I expect pure playback... not little glitchy lines or breaks in the video, which this laptop does. As of this date it seems to handle 480 as good as 360 and below. The best formats seem to be flash or mpeg-2; and definately NOT mpeg-4. But I gave this 4 stars; because ...

I'm a sucker for sub $250 netbooks.As long as you know your buying a netbook and what a netbook can and cant do this might be the product for you, here is my story.I bought an Acer Aspire One when they first came out, It worked for what I needed it for: a beater computer to keep in the car trunk, so that I was never without a PC whenever I might Need it. It was my 3rd Computer, Desktop PC & 15" laptop were the other two. After I Got my MacBook Air I decided to sell both the Acer and 15" laptop....

Great little netbook at an affordable price. Specs are pretty standard for a 2010/2011 netbook: 1G RAM, 250Gb HD, 3 USB ports, basic video camera, separate Mic & headphone jacks, sd card slot, vga output and a very useful 8h battery life.There are a lot of netbooks like this on the market, but what really stands out for me on this one is the keyboard, FULL size main keys with ALL the cursor movement keys: DEDICATED up, down, right,left, PGUP, PGDN, HOME and END. I work a lot with excel spreadshe...
