Pros: Good value, Large screen size, Clear image - Compared to other computers you get a lot of features/hardware compared to how much you're paying over a netbook for example.
Cons: First and foremost some of the bloat-ware such as software from Wild Tangent and the option to use SkyDrive programs cannot be removed (especially if you upgrade to Windows 8.1). The wireless is very weak. At about 6-8 feet away from the router while still in the same room I drop down to about 3/5 of the available signal strength. Very disappointing if you don't happen to work in the same room as your router.
Other Thoughts: Had it not been for the value the wireless might have almost been a deal-breaker had I known about it. The addition of Windows 8 makes it more difficult to remove software that is undesired. Overall it's an excellent system for movie watching or just getting work done.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Canon CanoScan LiDE110 2400 x 4800dpi 48bit USB Interface Flatbed Scanner
Pros: The price is very reasonable for the performance and quality of the scanner.
Cons: Includes the scanner driver, but does not include stand-alone scanning software like previous models. You have to provide your own copy of Photoshop or other photo manipulation software.
Other Thoughts: Still the best value for performance. I might not recommend this to someone as a first scanner, if they aren't familiar with 3rd party applications.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Reasonably priced, good screen contrast and clarity, lightweight, good battery life.
Cons: Really hate the touchpad, specifically the rocker button. Really hard to push down, so perhaps split into two would be helpful. System restore is incredibly over complicated. It requires you to go into the BIOS to allow you the option to restore, and then you have to follow that... assuming you could figure any of that on your own. Mine had to be restored/reformatted the day I recieved it because it kept losing configuration data between restarts.
Other Thoughts: A "no-frills" netbook/laptop. If you just want it to surf the net and whatnot it's great, but I wouldn't buy it if you are expecting anything high-performance or precise without an external mouse.READ FULL REVIEW
