Very good user reviews on Amazon
Low-cost processor suitable for basic tasks such as internet, music, movies.
Processor not suitable for multitasking, and computation intensive tasks such as photo and video editing, etc.
Memory may not be sufficient for simultaneous editing of large number of photos and videos, virtualization software(parallels), engineering and simulation software, etc
Solid state drive provides quick startup, silent operation, faster response compared to conventional harddrive
Battery life is unknown.
Basic GPU allows playing less demanding games (WoW, Sims3, etc) at low detail settings and resolution
GPU is not suitable for demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2,) even at lowest settings
12.1" screen suitable for portability; too small as desktop replacement or gaming
No built-in CD/DVD drive; Reduces weight but watching movies or installing software from CD/DVD will require separate purchase of optical drive
Integrated webcam for video chatting
