My laptop broke a few months ago because I'm an extremely clumsy person and I needed a new one (or netbook in this case) for everyday use. I didn't want to go broke, so I just went with the cheapest netbook I could find for temporary use. Now, in no way am I computer savvy, so all of this is my opinion, as the average computer user. This netbook is: -Great for surfing the web (not with more then three tabs open) -VERY slow with downloads (I only downloaded one thing ever since I got it because its that frustrating with waiting so long) -Good netbook for beginners -Not good for gaming (not even for sites like Runescape...) -Easy to connect to wireless internet -Clear screen even in the sun -Really nice webcam -Extremely short battery life (3hrs max.) -Good netbook for it being refurbished Overall it's nice. Nothing extraordinary. Decent enough to get by.

I'd buy another

it's not blazing fast but it's enough to stay in touch with emails, facebook, news, sports, weather and web browsing, feels solid and well made with a decent screen appearance in a relatively small package. If you want blazing speed by all means feel free to spend 10X the $128 we paid for a simple, small laptop/ netbook that gets the basic job done

For size and features, meets my needs.

I travel to England for pleasure several times a year. The small size lets me take it anywhere. I use it to make hostal and travel reservations and keep in touch back home. It is easy to recharge at the end of the day and fits comfortably in small places like cafe tables or stand up eateries.

good little netbook.

ive had this netbook about 2 weeks... and after i read the bad reviews i was looking for flaws in this netbook.. but i have to say its just a netbook not a laptop so you have to remember it cant do as much as a laptop.. its a little slower starting up, and to load pages, i play tons of games and it takes a little getting use to compared to my dinosaur of a laptop. i decided to give it 4 starts for those reasons and the fact that this has windows starter so you are unable to change the desktop background. it has to stay the windows icon, but for this to be refurbished it came in excellent condition and i havent had any problems out of it other than the things i listed above. i would recommend for someone who is just looking for a small lightweight netbook.

met expectations and delivered promptly

Wanted a netbook to use as a high capacity MP-3 player. Was a little worried because the specifications do not list a line-out port or a headphone jack, though I thought I could make one out on the photos. Unit arrived very promptly and I was pleasantly surprised to find a headphone jack that allowed me to connect to my sound system. Was also pleasantly surprised to see that Windows 7 starter edition does come with a media player, so the unit was exactly what was needed for my purpose. The refurbished quality was quite good and the unit works as advertised. I'm planning on increasing the internal RAM to 2GB to improve performance as this unit is ungradable, most competitive netbooks aren't. All else works as advertised - camera and WiFi support.

Came with no power supply

Bought as a gift. Not in good shape even as a refurb item. Power supply missing...


The on/off switch was non-functional from the beginning--nothing else to do but return it immediately. Also, there was absolutely no documentation or anything other than a power cord provided.

good for nothing

Being refurbished, and slightly cheap than new I bought, t did not function well so i returned
This computer was very slow.

Not worth it

I went in to buy a new Acer Aspire and this is what they replaced it with. Told me it was the same thing. My Acer ran for 4 years. This piece of junk worked for 6 months.
