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.

Yes you can. Most consumer grade printers connect to computers via USB and the manufacturer of those printers provide the same software found on installation discs on their websites for download.

As long as they are not a computer science or graphic arts major, yes. This is a decent little netbook, just way under priced compared to it's competition.

Yes, I think so. Just keep in mind that you will need to download/purchase some sort of office suite for word processing, etc. Openoffice.org offers an office suite for free that is compatible with Microsoft Office. We are trying out Open Office and so far it seems to have everything that we need.

I'm so glad you asked this question! I'm going to teach you a little trick with your touchpad. When you are on a webpage, if you want to make it smaller, take one finger, put it on one side of the touchpad, and the other on the otherside and then pinch your fingers together and the page should shrink some. Do the opposite by putting your fingers in the center and pinching outward.
