I would rate this netbook very high. I got it for school only purposes since I needed it for nursing. I did a lot of research, and I really am happy with this netbook. Pros: It is pretty fast, it is capable of doing everything a regular bulky laptop can do minus the fact that there are no CD drives available on it. The cons: It can freeze up, and typing on it takes some getting used to. The key board is I believe 93 percent of a full sized key board, so typing on it takes a bit of practice, but once you get used to it it works okay. The battery life is amazing I get over 10 hours on a full charge. The design is nice and it is cute. It weighs next to nothing, so I am able to put it in with all of my textbooks and the weight of my bag is not increased.
