Nope they're soldered on the boards usually.

Anyone know how slow does this feel, is it as unbearable as most other Windows laptops with eMMC memory? I had an Acer Cloudbook that was the same price and almost completely unusable. Felt like a computer from the 90's with a slow grinding harddrive.

I purchased a laptop similar to this one as far as specs. Same size, same processor, etc but it's an Asus. I used the laptop for surfing the internet, watching YouTube, and using Microsoft office. When using them I had no problems and preferred using the smaller laptop as it performed well compared to Chromebooks. I'd say go for it if you're doing simple tasks.

I see target has a chromebook for 129 that has an ips display.

For this "type of notebook" would it be better to get the chromebook?

It will mainly be used to surf the web

Not worth it, if you type quickly, the keyboard has a lag, you have to press the keys really hard to record the keystrokes. Those who have already bought, please try to get the best out of it and see if it lives upto your expectations. I had to return mine.

I must point out, I own one, and the main thing that bothers me is the lack of gestures and scrolling on the touch pad. From what I've been able to find, the touch pad hardware itself doesn't support multi touch, so no fixes via drivers either.

Mainly for web surfing is fine. Chromebooks are limited in other uses and most applications.

brought this during the last deal at best buy for $120. tested it for a week. horrible viewing angles. slow as molasses CPU/storage. took 1 minute to open an excel file. would not recommend unless purely for media use or web browsing.

Between the two you mentioned, I would buy the Chromebook. The CB screen is much better and the browsing experience will be faster. Plus, the CB trackpad supports gestures like 2-finger scrolling and swipe to go backwards and forwards.

Wife has been using an older Acer Aprire 1410 for basically word processing, ppt, and web browsing. It recently died. Would the lenovo be a suitable replacement? I was thinking SSD on the Acer, but for a little over $100, I'd like to get the newer machine.

Thanks

UPDATE: Picked one up and returning it tomorrow. Not looking for gaming experience, but when it chokes on opening webpages, then its a no go. Was willing to overlook the fact that gestures isnt possible on touchpad.

Too bad. I really liked the build and weight.
