"Z480 looks so stylish with a metal lid and key pad surround. I had Windows 7 Professional 32 bit and Windows Office 2007 and Nero installed. I use this Z480 for business and Skype and MSM, Watching Internet TV / Radio and You Tube and general web browsing, emailing and downloading my camera photos The picture on the 14" screen is very clear. The web cam gives a clear picture when using Skype. The sound from such a small Net Book is great. The key board is comfortable and easy to use. The shop I purchased the Z480 from gave me a free mouse that I use so I have not used the mouse pad much. I have only used this Notebook in my condo using the mains so cannot give any feedback on how long the the battery lasts. I can not think of anything that is wrong with this Note Book."
Cons: Included Software, Software compatibility, trackpad, operating system
"Windows 8 should NOT be used for computers (especially with a terrible trackpad). I can see why it was designed, but seriously, WHERE'S THE START MENU?! Windows 8 also has a lot of issues in terms of errors. One in every 3 times I start it up it says it has a problem and needs to shut down. There are not so many user-customizeable features on Windows 8. You also cannot start it up from an external drive. The supposedly 'intelligent touchpad' is highly inaccurate. There is some sort of recognition in Apple trackpads that won't recognise a palm just resting on the trackpad, whereas here, you can't click with one finger and move the cursor with the other!! Surely you guys could steal an idea or something."
