First of all it's a netbook you are describing. They perform way less than a real laptop but are nice for internet browsing and light everyday pc use. It's also an older one since it has the N270 CPU. Newer netbooks have much better CPUs like N450 or dualcore CPUs N550 and D525.

The 3 cell battery is BAD! 1.5 hours working time is horrible ! How can they ever sell that as a laptop (or netbook) ??

The graphics aren't good either, but that's expected with netbooks, however Nvidia's ION chipset is quite good for a netbook. Get one with an ION2 chipset if you're looking for graphical performance. This netbook you have right here will even struggle with youtube HD videos.

This thing would only be worth buying if it's dirt cheap, and you don't mind that it's the weakest netbook out there and that you can't use it without the power cable.
