In my experience, right out of the box, the LT did not stream Netflix very well. The answer is to up RAM to 2 G or do what I did and use a flash memory card as a ramdisk. I use a Sandisk Ultra 8 gig and it smoothed out Netflix streaming wonderfully

I cannot really say, but it plays the videos on youtube very well. Netflix might have a different type of configuration, however.

No, You can't play any Cds, Dvds, or any other disc devices.
I sugest MacBooks. They might be expencive but they work to the bone. Where the reccomedations are this is what a MacBook looks like. I don't reccomend the item, I reccomend the picture of the MacBook to you.

No, unless you purchase an external DVD player to work via USB. As for whether or not it will be powerful enough to effectively operate the DVD player AND smoothly playback the movie, I don't know. A RAM upgrade would be a great idea if that is your intention.

answer 3
This computer does not have a CD, DVD or Blu-ray drive built in. It is designed to install software and watch videos downloaded from the internet instead of from a CD or DVD. This keeps the size and weight small for optimal portability.

With the wide availability of broadband internet, USB Flash drives and SD cards, the need for optical drives has greatly been reduced. However, if you need this function, there are external optical drives that can be purchased and attached via USB. This can provide a way to use CDs or DVDs on this computer.

After reviewing the requirements for Slingbox this unit does not meet or exceed these requirements and would not work well with Slingbox.

It depends on the version of office you have. If you have a computer such as a desktop, I would do the following: Take a Flash drive, I suggest an 8 gig flash drive. Then insert the Office installation CD. If the installation process starts quit. Go to the 'Computer" area (My computer if its XP) Right click the CD Drive and select open. Now you will see a bunch of files on the disk. Highlight all of them by pressing Control-A and then.. with your mouse pointer, right click on one of the files, select send to, and then choose the drive letter that your USB Flash Drive appears under. The whole process will take about 5 to 7 minutes to copy all the files to the flash drive. Once this is complete you can take out the flash drive, and then insert it into the Netbook and start the Office 2007 installation process. Older versions of Office may work with Windows 7 , but its not a guarantee.
