Cons

basic 10" netbook display (1024x600px resolution)

1 agrees

touchpad multitouch gestures don't work well

1 agrees

slower 1.3GHz core speed - like Intels Core 2 ULV it is poorer for intensive applications that require raw single core processing power (eg/ games)

1 agrees

when it comes to battery life, AMD based devices can't keep up with their Atom / Core 2 ULV based equivalents - ~4:00 minutes of battery life

1 agrees

lots of pre-installed bloatware
