What You Need to Know

* Thin and light dimensions make it a good size for a portable productivity laptop
* Plastic case might be vulnerable to one good drop
* The touchpad provides pinch and zoom funcionality but it only works OK
* Unfortunately does not use two or three finger scrolling
* Roomy keyboard has slightly stiff action
* PC Mark Vantage test comes it around 2600, the lowest score we've seen for a laptop
* DVDs look great but the native speakers are too quiet
* Is a "get what you pay for" situation as the price seems about right
