I purchased this laptop for my wife to do do her training work on, also she didn't want to carry my luggable!
We went for the 1GB RAM, 120GB HDD Linux model in Blue for about £250.
The Linux Operating System is in my opinion VERY basic and highly kneecapped compared to what Linux can be, although there are guides on the internet to unlock more of its potential.
But having said that it is also very easy to use. Personally she tried it but didn't like it having be bought up on Micro$oft like most people, so i ended up installing XP on it (a challenge without a CD drive but that's another story).
There are 2 SD card slot on this machine, the one on the left hand side is intended for the the version of this laptop with SSD to expand the storage capacity. Stick an SD card in and leave it sort of thing.The other slot on the right hand side can cope with a few different formats, including SD and this is intended as your normal card reader, say from a digital camera where you take the pictures off and remove the card.
The screen is clear and evenly lit, although I've experienced a slight flickering when running off battery and therefore lower brightness, this is solved by increasing the brightness (but obviously reduces battery life)The battery is disappointing compares to the likes of the ASUS EEPC
For approx £250 you cant go wrong, unless you do gaming!Appendix A:
