[FONT="Verdana"]Here's a copy of reviews I've come across, which indicate that the screen can be adjusted in a very unique way - see the quote below.

"[COLOR="Blue"]Instead of being attached to the main body of the notebook like any other machine, you’ll find this one sits on a central column, rather like the average external monitor. This means you can raise the 12.1-inch screen up and down so you can pitch it exactly in line with your eye. This makes for a great screen.[/COLOR]"

When you grow up you might realise no-one cares what you THINK.

If you think it has issues, list them - suggest alternatives etc - try to be positive - your post, as is, is a waste of space...

Again what YOU would do is of no interest to anyone else - either make suggestions/point out problems/suggest alternatives or - frankly - STFU plz...

Personally, I'd be wary of a laptop from a manufacturer not noted for making them - it means finding replacement parts (like batteries, DVD drives etc.) could be really hard - and they do tend to pack up before the machine does in my experience.

This machine seems comparable to the NC2400s which BigPockets is usually selling (also refurbed) a bit cheaper - and they - being HP systems - will be MUCH easier to get parts etc. for (indeed they're usually still in warranty with HP!)

That said, it's spec. doesn't seem THAT bad for the cash - battery life appears to be v.poor tho - something I know many people are concerned about.

I would only touch this if you wanted a netbook, remember it's the old 32bit Core CPUs not Core 2 and an ultra low voltage one at that, not sure how it would stack up against the Atom. This probably will be a slow 4200rpm hard drive which will make things like loading windows etc very tedious. Actually that monitor thing looks like they tried to copy the idea from Flybook.

Also 2.1KG is very heavy for a netbook replacement as they are around the 900g mark.

TBH get a decent netbook (details of which I will post next week when I get mine, if it comes it will be worth the wait if you're thinking of buying one :P )

When you compared PERFORMANCE, the Atom processor is rubbish. In benchmarks it is no better than the Celeron M 353 @ 900Mhz found in the original eee!

sorry but who are you to tell anyone to "stfu", you're a no mark mate. an alternative is spending more money on something decent.

This forum isn't about telling people what they should buy INSTEAD - nor is it the place to compare apples and oranges.

If a product has a notable flaw/isn't good value for money compared to similar devices then you should say so.

Just saying "this is crap" or "xxx would be better" helps no-one.

Now who's a "no mark" eh?

i didn't say "this is crap" you might want to read properly instead of trying to make yourself look intelligent when you clearly are not.
this is not good value for money :thumbsup:
