For those of you who don’t know anything about this netbook yet, below is the list of specs that are commercialized in Portugal (in other countries there are differences in Memory and Storage specs).

Last month it decided not to work, with exactly the same kind of problems the first one had: the end of the wire near the charger box seemed to be broken.
