Pros

Customers who have bought this product state that its anti-glare display is excellent and highly usable in sunlight. It offers vivid, bright graphics that lets them view content effortlessly and with much less eye strain. They also praise the netbook’s ability to maintain strong wireless connections wherever they are. Getting online is quick and easy, letting customers email, chat, browse the web, and more efficiently and without any compromise.

Setting it up is also said to be a breeze. Most customers report that it works straight out of the box. The included Windows 7 Starter is said to be easily upgradable to premium versions. Customers only had to do purchase a CD key and it was done. The built-in graphics was said to be capable enough to watch high-definition Youtube videos, play Flash games, and more.

Cons

The most glaring drawback is the keyboard itself, according to customers who bought this netbook. Although it is nearly full size, the keyboard is said to have caused cramps. People have also reported it to be somewhat uncomfortable to type on for long periods of time. Meanwhile, the processor is said to perform slowly, though it is adequate for basic web browsing, watching movies, and editing documents. There are dual-core processors in the market now, making this netbook feel particularly slow.

Keeping on the topic of performance, the included 1GB of RAM is not enough for Windows 7. Users reported slow boot times, and noted that it took a while to load applications. The integrated Intel graphics is not suitable for playing computer games, though it played HD video and Flash games particularly well.

Bottom Line

As per customer reviews, HP has made a decent netbook that works well. It is aimed at those looking for a device that can do light computing – web browsing, writing documents, staying in touch, etc. It also has an ultra-mobile design that allows it to be carried anywhere. On top of this, the netbook has a great, bright, anti-glare screen that works well for consuming content in bright environments. The overall package is marred by performance, however, due to the combination of slow processor and low amount of RAM. This is particularly glaring in the light of dual-core models available in the market that offer greater performance at a similar price.
