I was impressed from day one. Small, fast, light, plenty of battery life, these are the many attributes that make this a great machine. I have taken it everywhere and it has always preformed well. Having more then one USB port has allowed me to hook up high speed drives and dvds. This is another great product by Toshiba. This is my fourth laptop because Toshiba has delivered on its promises. Things I would change: The touch pad often gets in the way of typing. Occasionally, my long thumbs will brush the pad and send my typing to the other side of the page. This gets pretty annoying when you have to get it done. putting it slightly below surface may solve this. The pad would also be great if it were angled, even if it made it smaller. I just don't bend like I used too.

Can't grumble about the harddisk size but a few snags fairly son after obtaining my netbook in june 2011... Pretty soon - within the first month - the webcam stopped working - just while i was on holiday, so no skype calls from the campsite, text only! Takes forever to boot up while it does all its background checks and (windows 7) updates - with it's poor performance running several updates at one time, can spend all day just gettng to 'all sysgtems go''. It can't cope with more than 1 process without becoming really slow! Also the cursor jumps sometimes so typing continues through text already typed meaning you have to stop and type again! Requires pretty high maintenanceof systems - unless leaving eg driver reviver in charge - but careful, driver reviver changes specs, ie browser or preferred programs, loses data, slows down the boot up and takes ages, I don't like it! Serious loss of data as it cleverly attepts to integrate eg photo albums from mobile phones which do not as yet have different filenames, just 'ing201.jpg' or some such - so that different pictures can have the same filename - albeit in different folders - and therefore get deleted. I have lost a great dfeal of data - irreplaceable - before twigging i had to put them in different directories and even then they disappear, unles renamed. size of screen is a nuisance for fluid reading as even with the magnifying tool you can either see the whole page and scroll down with a too-small type or else make it bigger but keep having to move the screen from side to side, interrupting flow of reading a lineat a glance. tablet / keyboard is sometimes insufficiently responsive to light pressure so that the space bar doesn't function and words end up being stuck together! main thing is with such a small RAM it takes ages to go through all updates etc at bootup and to virus scan while loading software. not so good at multitasking as the Qosmio which is bigger faster and even though older more efficient! Plus side - size is handy to travel with and carry around, once all systems loaded it works well, and is very discreet. nice big disk but data loss still an issue!
I just want to say it's OK for the price. Hard disk space is good, the system performance is also good. I believe that this netbook can give more free apps that are truly useful to the consumer than now. A great detail is built to bring google chrome.
It is very solid, portable, super lightweight, has a comfy keyboard and great battery life: 6-7 hours on eco mode and about 8 with WiFi off. On the other side of specter, however, the processor's power, although nice, is not excellent. Even my Skype video calls do not want to work (sometimes) because of slow computer performance, that is with only 2-4 undemanding apps opened. It is definitely enough power every day use like, homework, web,etc. Oh, may I should consider upgrading to 2GB of RAM! Also the screen is kind of way too small, for someone who will be staring at it for more than half an hour. 12 screen would do perfectly fine-not too big or too small.
