I've used a netbook for some time to access my home computer and emails and have something portable for the road. I used to have a 10.1 HP. This 11.6 is much, much better. Slightly larger screen makes a big difference. Going from 1 to 2gb is a huge advantage. Others have upgraded to 4gb but for my use I may not. It comes with Windows 7 Home prem and that's much better than the 7 starter. You do need to get rid of the bloatware that comes with it but, after that you'll be fine. Also, make sure you get some kind of "adblocker".. The ads and popups and such will just choke this sort of machine if you allow them to jump on. This is not a workhorse but, you didn't pay for one. It travels well, good keyboard, nice display, the webcam is passable for once in a while use, the speakers are passable for what you're getting. Use earbuds and you'll be fine. The battery life is good as well.. 4 hours plus on a full charge, and for me that's more than enough to check emails and spend some time working. I Paid $248.00 and keeping in mind what a netbook is, this is a great value.
