Sounds like a bargain but in future could you please give an assessment of a laptop's potential for users of image editing software like Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 and Gimp?
I'd like to see a comparison between this and the Asus EEE Transformer, which won this site's laptop of the year award. Since the Asus is cheaper, better built, much better screen and award winning on top, what's the point of this one? Just the larger screen? Thanks
Well the Transformer is an Android device, this is a Windows 7 laptop, comparisons would be a little odd.
I wonder if I'm alone in this. I've been using my new NP300 for a few days now and I seem to have a major problem - the front edge is sharp and, after prolonged use of the touchpad, my outer palms are getting impossibly sore. My previous laptops have had a softer, rounded front edge and it's never been a problem. I can't believe the ergonomics guys didn't test this aspect. Maybe I've just got delicate hands (!), but I'm going to have to seriously adjust my hand positions if I'm to carry on without causing lacerations and bruising.
Still a great machine. I don't use heavy applications like any of the adobe suite, but I do regularly use Visual Studio with ease. The screen resolution does leave a bit to desire, but for the price and longevity this machine has provided much more than expected.
dont have any problems with mine, picture could be a bit better, but this laptop is easy to use and so forth that its only used for internet and word anyways, nothing fancy, so i reckon it was a score when i brought mine over a year ago.
