Highest Powered Netbook for The Price
Pros: Light wieght, semi-powerful, matte finish exterior, full 1080p movie playback, HDMI port, dual core, 4g memory and decent graphics.
Cons: Price this netbook is more expensive than the Asus equivalent 15.6" laptop, Battery life, but with higher performance you eat up battery power. High gloss screen and glare, but with a matte screen you wouldn't be able to enjoy HD playback as much. Touch pad has some glitches when trying to highlight something to cut and paste. The touch pad works though. Still can get bogged down when trying to play music and work on documents at the same time. It comes with bloatware that can slow performance.
Other Thoughts: I bought this netbook for 2 reasons: Portability and Power. The price point is ok being under five hundred bucks. I think it could be offered lower if supply could reach demand. Overall I am happy with this purchase and use this netbook daily. Newegg rocks, they always have eggactly what I need :)
