eMachines E350 Netbook
eMachines E350 10.1 inch Netbook (Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz, 1GB, 160GB, WLAN, Webcam, Win 7 Starter) – Black
Is the eMachines E350 10.1 inch netbook a good buy? The simple answer is that of everyone that has reviewed this netbook on Amazon, only one person has ever rated it 1 star. Almost 90 percent of the buyers rate it 4 stars or higher.
The eMachines E350 netbook is fast. It runs at 1.66 GHz with the Intel Atom N450 processor. To make things run faster eMachines includes 1 GB of memory. Though you might want to add more memory when your purchase this netbook.
There is plenty of room for disk storage with the 160 GB hard drive. If you need additional storage, there are 2 USB ports where you can plug in additional storage drives.
The eMachines E350 netbook supports both wired and wireless Internet connections. There is a built in Ethernet port. The wireless supports 802.11 b/g/n networks.
eMachines provides a 3 cell Li-Ion battery for this netbook. This will provide between 4 to 8 hours of battery life. This is good enough for most situations but will die before you land if taking a Trans-Atlantic flight. The included AC adapter can quickly recharge the battery though.
This eMachines E350 netbook is ultra lightweight. It weighs only 1.25 Kg. It is less than an inch thick. It is light weight enough to carry everywhere. You will not go back to a laptop computer after you carry this around for a few days.
There is a built in dual card reader. The card reader will handle SD and MMC disks.
The display is 10.1 inches wide. The resolution is 1024 x 600 pixels. The quality on the screen is impressively good for a computer this size.
eMachines provides a 1 year parts and labor warranty. I would recommend purchasing a neoprene sleeve with the unit to protect it when traveling or carrying it around.
Amazon customer feedback:
This was an unexpected surprise when we found this functioned better than our £400 lap top which died on us. Its fast which is a big bonus & the display is nice & clear. I can’t really find anything bad to say about this netbook, it’s done everything it’s supposed to & very will.
