Yay. The Netbook reborn! You say your only beef is the battery life?? I'd have some issues with that screen too. I can see just how grainy it is from this photo alone. Just by looking at it, I'm guessing it's too heavy, too fragile, and too cheaply made (inside and out) to even be worth the $120. What on earth would you use it for? Why on earth would anyone remotely consider this as an alternative to… anything?
It's fine to say "just web and email, basic document editing", since that's about all I would entrust it to do. If that. Why spend good money to guarantee you'd be constrained to those few tasks? Spend a couple of hundred more, and you've got an iPad Mini capable of everything this can do and MUCH more. Yes, the specs and build quality (and company of record: Apple) of ANY iPad pretty much guarantee it.
[EDIT] Just out of curiosity, I went back and dove into some of the details at that Amazon link. I'm still wondering why you posted this crappy little thing to this forum?
I was right, it weighs a ton. Well, 1.6 pounds to be exact. That seems fairly excessive for a 7" "mini laptop netbook notebook computer tablet PC" (they don't even know what to call it exactly, eh?). An 11" MacBook Air weighs only half a pound more, but it's a much more substantial machine.
I don't see any specs to crow about. 2-hour battery life aside, the whole package seems more than a bit… I don't know… bad?
I skimmed the reviews as well. Don't you find it suspect that 10 of the whopping 13 total reviews gave it a full 5-star rating? Seriously? Even the best Apple products don't enjoy that high a ratings ratio. Those are certainly suspect, to say the least.
I imagine it's crap products like this one that lets "Strategy Analytics" try to claim that Apple is being outsold 2 to 1 by similar "white box" devices… it IS an "Android "tablet" thing" after all. It's ALSO a laptop, netbook, notebook computer PC… whatever. SA will count it against Apple's competitive space. Stupid.
Come on. Don't waste our time here with nonsense like this. It's pointless and worthless. Do you understand why I say that?
