Pros: This is a great netbook! For those who say it's too slow, I'd like to know what you're trying to do. My web browser is Chrome (to maximize screen real estate, highly recommended) and I use Digsby as my IM client. I'm able to play youtube videos and alt-tab to digsby without any hiccups at all. Hulu.com plays fine too. Windows 7 is more than fast enough, though I plan to upgrade (if it handles W7 Starter, it can obviously handle the others. Power wise, there's no difference). The matte screen is GREAT. Glossy screens reflect too much light, but with a matte finish I can keep brightness low and still see what I'm doing, prolonging the battery life. And I absolutely adore the textured finish; glossy finishes make my computer feel gross after a while and leave fingerprints, but there's no problem with that here.
Cons: All these are pretty nit picky, but that's a good thing. There's nothing really BAD about this netbook. The webcam isn't the greatest. I dislike the chromed mouse button for two reasons--it has a glossy finish which I hate, and it takes too much pressure to hit (so I just tap the mousepad). The keyboard is VERY loud and also flexes everywhere when I type. I don't type particularly hard, either, so it's definitely not just me. The border around the screen is black, which I like, but it's also glossy which means whenever I open the lid, I leave a massive thumb print. The only other real con is the size of the touchpad. It's so small I end up basically rubbing it repeatedly just to move around.
Other Thoughts: Simply a great netbook. Stylish, light, fast. Even with the cons, those are just tiny things. I was planning on upgrading the ram to 2gb but trust me, even with 1gb of RAM it's great. Highly recommended.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ADATA 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model ADQVE1B16
Pros: Probably works well?
Cons: I build my own computer a year ago (using the ASUS P5N-D motherboard) and have been getting random BSODs since then. XP wasn't as bad, W7 only slightly worse, and Vista got them at least once a day. Lately the BSODs have increased and I finally tracked the problem down to one of my memory sticks. Seems its been bad since the day I bought it and has only gotten worse.
Other Thoughts: Wish I could at least get a replacement but judging by the difficulty others have had and the fact that I no longer have the receipt or even box for the memory, I guess I'm out of luck.READ FULL REVIEW
