This is a generally well-built machine with solid battery life and a very tempting price tag, though there are some niggles in terms of components and the flex in the keyboard...

Very cheap price
Smart finish
Relatively good performance
Matte display
Runs quietly
Can't upgrade memory
Superfish comes bundled
Massive power supply unit
Keyboard flexes
Display lacks contrast
