Great Netbook!, January 23, 2011
Every review that questions the speed of this netbook perplexes me. It does
everything I want to to with normal speed. I use Firefox, Skype, Steam, iTunes,
Pidgin, Thunderbird and all of them work perfectly and load up in a matter of
seconds. I am dual booting Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Remix and even that work really
well. The only hardware that didn't work right after install Ubuntu was the
Wi-Fi adapter. I was able to find drivers and install that easily and I am new
to Linux. On Ubuntu, I was able to get Skype, Pidgin, and Thunderbird installed
in addition to what comes with Ubuntu (Firefox and others). On Windows 7, I am
running Steam and on there I have been able to run games like Plants vs Zombies,
Flight Control HD, Doom 1&2, Star Wars Jedi Knight series. It actually surprises
me that this netbook can play Half Life 2 and Doom 3 at low settings pretty
smoothly. If you are looking for a machine to play games made after 2005, you
should not buy this machine, but if you are looking for something to be very
portable this is a great machine. The power plug is a standard 3 prong power
plug that is small enough to take up only one socket on a power strip. My only
complaint with the keyboard is that the Caps Lock key does not have a light on
it that indicates if Caps Lock is on or not, but Dell has a program install that
tells on the monitor if Caps Lock is switched on or off. My biggest complaint
with the track pad is that the left and right click buttons seem flimsy, but I
haven't found anything online saying that anyone has had them break.
Great netbook for portable web browsing and media use.

novels and is always on the go. this fits perfectly in her handbag and with a
