I patiently waited for Windows 7 too. I also factored-in the 3 years economic usefulness of any PC (laptop included) before it becomes technologically obsolete. For above criteria, I could not justify buying any of above brand at their respective prices.I finally decided that I will get the Gateway EC series for portability and full keyboard (10 inch screen with descent specs). Our tech guy (at work) suggested that everything is impressive except the gigahertz speed. I look-up the speed of my PC at work and at home and both of it has the speed twice of the EC series yet I still complain that both machines are slow. So I scratch-off the EC series and went to NV54 which is the 15 inch screen with full keyboard. I'm glad that I switched to NV54 because I later realized how important the optical drive to any PC (to accomodate multiple needs) which is absent to the EC series.I used the NV54 for about 4 days now and it is lightning fast. At its Amazon price, it is an excellent choice with comparable specs , generous ports, and fewer junk wares. I was so confident in my buying decision that I bought in advance its accessories like its external music sound system, Student/Home 07 Office, Norton, and lately the Outlooks without BCM. I copied my music and files using Ativa mem stick. My Excel and Word files are all working fine. I played the music without external sound system (no time to assemble yet) and it sounded better than my regular boom box. I am a music lover and I know the quality of sound reproduction this little Gateway NV54 can do. The color of my unit is midnight blue and I got it at CompUSA for the same price as Amazon is selling. I am an Amazon customer and I was force to buy outside because it did not carry this product earlier. My buying experience at CompUSA was not excellent. So I got my machine there and 07 Office and the rest I get it back from Amazon.I installed my XP accounting software and it is working faster an efficient. The speed is quick that I find it hard to match. I also installed my XP Chess game and the 3D graphic is very impressive. The boot-up time is quick as well as the shutdown. The web cam can do video and snapshot.The down side, the operating manual is in Gateway web site and appears so brief. It assumes that the user is technically advance and the discussion is very minimal. The instruction manual that came with it was not updated. It said that you have turn-on its power for [...]

Customer Reviews

Yes..... But
I couldn't agree more with the other reviews regarding the deceptiveness of some outfits - in this case Tiger - in selling refurbished items as new. I felt that it was important, however, to review the product and not the vendor. I've used the D610 professionally with great success for several years. I was so pleased with its performance that I bought one for my personal use as well as two more for my in-laws. I bought all three as refurbs but I knew what I was getting and the price was unbeatable at approximately $250.00 each. If you're a wannabe geek such as I am, you can easily find all of the service literature necessary to service the D610 yourself. I've never had to service any of the three that I bought, but I did expand the memory in all of them. I was pleased with how easy the upgrade was, how well engineered the product is, and how clear the service literature is as well. I bought a hard drive caddy and an additional 80GB HD to fit in the CD port, so now I have 2 bootable HDs and a ton of storage. If forced to search for a negative, the only thing I can come up with is the click action of the pointing device. The feel is a bit stiff and the sound is somewhat irritating. That said, if the pointing device ever became bothersome enough a USB mouse could be purchased for a couple of bucks. I was looking for another D610 to buy for my wife when I stumbled upon these reviews so I felt compelled to put in my two cents worth. Good luck with whatever product you choose!

Customer Reviews

Extraordinary machine
A compaq Evo N610c notebook came into my possession in 2008, when it was 5 or 6 years old, and I already had another computer as my daily driver. I spent a couple bucks to get the W200 wireless module and a ram upgrade, gave it an old hard disk I had lying around, and if I didn't already have a newer laptop, I would just use the Evo. It has unbelievable battery life, a brilliant screen capable of 1400 by 1050 resolution, very useful shortcut keys and buttons, and countless other features. I truly believe it was designed better than my newer laptop... The hinge isn't too stiff or too loose, it has very easy access to ram, HDD, and the multibay, etc. I would recommend this laptop to anyone, and with XP pro, 1.25g of ram, and integrated wireless, it is just as capable in today's business world as it was in 2002.

Sorry for P. Myers
Your personal opinion with no stats to back your negative rating. It is possible that you've had a bad experience with this laptop while I've had a great one. COnsistently lasted through a couple of years and still going strong. While HW appears to be the problem in most cases, it is actually technology that updates and leaves the HW behind. Knowing the correct solutions and patches and updates cures this 99% of the time. The laptop is fine for the pricing on it!

Great Laptop Great Price
I got this laptop used and it works great. The only problem was that the orginal battery did not work and the seller quickly corrected the problem. The laptop does not come with much on it so I am trying to install programs. I am considering updating the laptop because it is a few years old.

Good value for the money
I purchased the HP G60-237NR notebook PC in February for less than 550.00. This laptop has all the features and ports I needed. I have had good customer service from HP when I had questions. I have Vista and we bought this same laptop for my Mom last month at Amazon with the new Windows7. I would recommend this laptop for the average user. I use it for email, shopping the web, MS application software, Skype, LinkedIn, DVD play, and watching Hulu tv over the web. The volume was not loud enough to watch a DVD movie while on vacation in our RV so I bought small external speakers to plug in at a cost of less than $30.00.

Very happy with purchase for home
Bought this laptop on Black Friday. Works great, easy setup. Battery life is good-to-great. 15.5" is a good screen size -- almost considered 17.5" until saw it and realized it's a huge monster that would never work on an airplane. Hard drive is sufficient size. Really like the HDMI port to watch DVDs or Internet video on our flatscreen TV. Seems to be one of the best laptops on the market today. Wish the ctrl and fcn keys were switched and there was a clearer indicator that the NUM Lock and CAPS Lock are on/off.

Customer Reviews

Acer made a nice mini-notebook into a better one. The screen is larger and just as bright. The keyboard is still great (for a small one). No weirdly placed right shift key placement (Asus, Lenovo, etc). The mousepad buttons are below the touchpad not along side (yeah). It is now easy to increase ram or replace the drive without entirely dismantling the unit and voiding the warranty. I have no complaints. I loved the first one, this one fixes all the criticisms of the first one. Nothing major just refinement. Someone is listening to its customers and it is Acer.
Addendum: the screen is glossy, and initial orders are getting the larger 5900ma battery. It stick out the back a bit, but the run time is amazing. It must be the longest running mini-laptop out there, including the new Asus 1000he and the Samsung 10nc, for much less $$. That's a win in my book. Easy to touch type (for me), good looks, I need a xd-card slot and this one has a 7-1, there is a bit a bloat ware, just delete and put on what you need, the HD is large enough.

Customer Reviews
By J. Bolton (Atlanta, GA)

This is a great laptop for the price. It functions beautifully for basic use (school, work, surfing the web, etc.). I have had absolutely no trouble with mine, and would highly recommend this product to everyday users.

I've seen a couple of bad reviews simply because users purchased this computer with the intent to make it their "gaming" computer, and then were disappointed with the outcome. Check the specs and your game requirements first. If you truly want a gaming computer, you probably shouldn't be looking at Laptops in the first place.

It's a great computer at a reasonable price. If you just need something for work, school, and surfing the web, it's perfect.

Excellent Value
I am a computer enthusiast and hobbyist.I had some components left over from previous upgrades and decided to purchase this barebone laptop upon seeing on the Amazon website.It was very easy to install all of the necessary components into the unit and it took me only about 15 minutes to complete the install of all of the components.I am very pleased with the performance of this notebook.I read reviews on other websites that expressed concern over the integrated Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics.After I installed my operating system (Windows Vista Ultimate was my choice) and got the system up and running I was very surprised at how well the integrated graphics adapter handled some of my favorite games as well as DVD playback.I would not recommend this computer for the hardcore gamer. If you intend to use it for business,school and light to medium gaming then this is an excellent computer for you. I would recommend this notebook to anyone who is looking for a nice laptop for everyday usage and do not mind installing your own components as well as operating system.

Customer Reviews

You get a lot for the money
My options were to get either a deal netbook or one that fits the minimal criteria.
I was one of the millions that Amazon disappointed by cancelling my HP mini order due to their mistake posting a very low price. But that is a different review.
So since the deal was gone I focused on what I wanted for features.

* I wanted at least a 10" widescreen display the Acer Aspire One AO751h-1893 has an 11.6" and the + is that it is a very high resolution screen. Fantastic is a good adjective to describe it.
* I wanted built in Bluetooth, easy to engage with two options one is the easy button next to the Wi-Fi and the second is the F3 option when holding down the fn button.
* I wanted the extended battery life. 8+ hours even more if I work in power saver mode (but it dims down too much, so for the sake of my eyes I will rarely use this option) even though the Ac power adapter is small after the first few days of use I stopped caring it because the battery life is so good. What I did not realize is that the extended life battery also extends the battery itself making it bulker than the photo. The photo shows a flush fitting battery if you order this expect an extended size.
* I wanted at least a 120 GB hard drive, this has 250 GB
* I wanted the 2 GB RAM, this allows Vista to operate properly and not slow down the system. The + is that it comes with Vista basic, saves me the trouble of installing it. But expect when connecting to the internet for the first time that the updates to the operating system and to the software to be time consuming.
* I wanted to pay less than $400 I got to pay $450 can't always get what you want! But over all I am very happy with my purchase. I have owned and used this computer for two weeks, I usually use an item a month before I review it, but since this computer is so light weight and portable I have taken it every were and used it enough so I could recommend it.

What I experienced using my Acer Aspire One AO751h-1893:

* The Atom processor is great it does not heat up and it is super quite. Once I removed all the junk that is preinstalled on the computer (most computer not just this) it is fast. I preferred the Atom N270 or N280 but this Atom Z520 is just fine. I have not owned either N Atom so I can not give my opinion about performance difference.
* The key board is comfortable to use and the touch pad is nice. (could be a few mm wider to allow the full benefit of the Flick, Pinch and Circular features)

It would have been nice to have an access button to the web cam. Like I mentioned earlier the Bluetooth has two easy access buttons but the web cam has none (that I have detected)
In conclusion this netbook looks and feels rugged and sturdy the screen is glossy so expect a fantastic picture and the battery life is great so you'll use it a lot.

I wasn't expecting much, but to be honest, I'm starting to think hard about picking one of these up for myself.It's dead silent, even under load, and the battery lasts far, far longer than the "2hours 30minutes" that it displayed for four hours off power. Built in webcam is sharp and follows motion well and the screen is bright and sharp as well. The multi-touch touch pad takes a bit to get used to, but it's not a problem.A few things that are a bit annoying:* All the ports are on the sides of the laptop, meaning that you'll have lots of wires sticking out.* Make sure to disable the "fancy startup" program, since it overrides things like selected backgrounds and menubar setups.* the slick cover is a fingerprint magnet.Those issues aside, it's very light and nicely responsive.[...]

I wanted something that was ...1) Light weight and portable.2) Easy to carry and/or pack when I travel.3) Quick accessing the internet for news and email.4) Would run Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint.5) Had an easy to read screen, and6) Cost less than $800.I strongly considered 10" netbooks by several manufacturers (Samsung, HP, Asus, etc.) but decided I wanted a larger screen after I found myself "leaning in" to read the screen on the 10" netbooks. Laptops had bigger screens, but were LOTS heavier (>5.5 lbs) and would be much less convenient both in my kitchen and to travel with. Getting a 12-14" screen in a light weight laptop or a Mac was going to easily cost me more than $1000. The Samsung NC20 fit my criteria the best. I was a bit apprehensive to buy it though as I was unable to see one locally. In the end, I decided to take the plunge.Boy am I glad I did. This computer is simply great. Perfect size, very portable and light weight. Screen is easy to read and very bright. One complaint I had heard about the NC20 was that the speakers weren't very good, but I would disagree with this; they're fine! The keyboard is easy to use, even with my big fingers. Battery life is excellent. In addition, the setup was a breeze. I've set up a lot of computers in my time (both PC and Mac), and honestly this was by far the easiest (even easier than my Mac's)! Microsoft Office went on fine, easy setup of my wireless network and file sharing with my desktop. I also loaded Norton Internet Security on it, and it runs just fine (no noticeable reduction in speed). It has handled everything I've given it just great!I added a USB-CD/DVD drive and a USB-mouse (although it has built-in Bluetooth), and these work great. When purchasing I thought about upgrading the memory to 2GB but decided to wait and see. Now that I have it, I see no need for this currently (but it's nice to have the option for the future).My NC20 is currently sitting on my kitchen table, running Microsof[...]

Item shipped on March 2nd and arrived on March 14.When I ordered only Sapphire Blue color was available but I am happy with Sapphire Blue. It looks very attractive. I would normally order either white or black model but I am glad they were not available :) The only thing I can complain is that it easily gets finger marks so I try not to touch the shiny surfaces.When you unpack the box and hold it on your hand, you will realise how light this is (especially if you have been lugging a 17" laptop) This is very transportable and ideal for those small airplane tray tables (or your lap)The 1.6Ghz N270 Intel Atom processor is a single core processor but it is pretty snappy and certainly more than enough for most office type usage. The Netbook ships with Windows XP Home w/SP3 installed instead of Vista so to me it feels as responsive as (or better than) a Core 2 Duo based laptop running Vista.The unit is rather quiet. The fan or hard disk noise is minimal. The fan does not kick in often during normal use. It might be more active with some heavy CPU/HD activity tasks.The screen is 1024x600 CrystalBright (shiny) type LCD but very comfortable to read under various light conditions. There is an integrated 0.3M megapixel (640x480) webcam and microphone embedded in the screen frame. Ideal to use a video phone/conferencing software like Skype, etc. BTW, to gain some vertical space on desktop, you might want to set Windows XP taskbar to auto-hide and pop-up when you move the cursor to the edge of the screen.The keyboard is actually pretty well designed. Unlike some models from competitors, the shift, control, alt, tab, enter, backspace keys are all in the right places. Initially, I found the keys a bit small but after a few days of use, you get used to and avoid hitting two keys. The arrow keys could have been a bit bigger as there is room along the lower right side of the keyboard.The touchpad on this model is made by Synaptics and is pretty configurable. Like everything else it is a bit small but works acceptably well. It would have bee[...]
