"Small Screen, but good hardware"

I recently bought this laptop for the business I work in. Naturally every user/company buys a laptop for different needs. In our case we required a laptop which could be easily adaptable for multimedia purposes, with its main function being that of outputting video to a projector. The possibility of the future need for editing was kept in mind.

Compared to other laptops on the market, this one features a good processor, with an adequate 1Gb of RAM. From the onset the trade-off seemed to be the 12inch screen. I admit many users would prefer a larger screen but since our needs were mainly for output to a projector the 12inch screen did not bother us much. As far as video output is concerned the laptop features a standard VGA 15 pin port as well as an HDMI-out, currently the best possible output on the market.

Another important feature is the PCI Express slot, allowing future expansion through a PCI express card. All other aspects are pretty standard, your usual 160GB hard disk and shared graphics card which hasn't shown any problems so far.

Using the laptop has proved very simple with Windows VIsta Home Premium, first time booting takes some time but from then onwards it's a breeze. All in all I'd say good value for money.
