This is NOT a netbook. It's a smartbook. Netbooks cost about $228 and up. I have been looking at netbooks too. You will not be impressed with this item for flash. I can't imagine that it would function well with flash or Netflix

answer 3
I'm not familiar with games, but my opinion is no. It's less powerful than a netbook. The CPU inside is an ARM VIA 8505 and 128 meg of ram. It has no hard drive or cd. It has an SD card slot and usb port. Think of as though it has about as much power as a cell phone.

I have used a Pandigital eReader and this smartbook. To me, the money seems better spent on a netbook or Laptop. A netbook will be very slow too (compared to a laptop or pc). But a netbook is light and supposed to do well for email and the web. As in, not for gaming.

I do like that this is very lightweight. That is why I use it.

This would be good for a person who likes to hack devices and maybe wants to put android on it. It's inexpensive in that respect (for a hacking/ educational project). After they hack it, they may loose interest in the item.

smartbook=$100, Netbook=$200+, Laptop= About $300 +/-

I hope this helps you.

Oh, heck no! First, it is running windows CE. Thats "Compact Edition". Some people say it means "Crippled Edition" because it's very slow. This unit basically runs mobile versions of web pages, applications, etc

I'm not sure about printers. I haven't tried it. It does have usb ports. But that does not mean that YOUR printer is supported.

These have very little cpu power. Compared to a Pandigital E-reader, I like the Smartbook a little more. It get's better Wifi reception. I also like having a physical keyboard as found on the smartbook.

FYI: These units will NOT run Linux. Some people have successfully loaded Android 2.2

Based on reviews, I think a netbook might be money better spent.

I think you should look elsewhere for that. You will be happier. You can't load powerful apps. It comes with a VERY BASIC WP program. for 2 finger typists ;-)

This is much more of a toy than anything else.

It is slooooooow and requires patience. It is so slow, that you can't tell if it is processing or if its hung up. Although, I never saw it lock and require a reboot. You may just think it locked up.
