Now that we've been using the iiView A2 Slim Netbook for a couple of days (watch the Unboxing Video too if you missed it), we want to share with you some of our hands on experience in this short video.
We were impressed with the performance of the iiView A2, especially the smooth playback of HD Video on the 12.1" WXGA 1280 x 800 screen. The pre-installed Windows 7 Home Premium operating system also adds to the whole user experience.
It would be nice if the keyboard was a little larger, extending to the edges of the chassis, but it's a comfortable size and the keys are well laid out.
Another big plus is the matte non-reflective screen and the matte finish on the inside to prevent fingerprints from showing up as you use it. It only has the elegant gloss finish on the outside of the lid.
It's great to have Windows 7 Home Premium pre-installed which performs well on this machine. The System Properties show an overall Windows Experience Index of 2.0 because of the integrated Intel(R) GMA 950 video adapter. Other than that, the unit comes with 2Gb RAM and a 320Gb Hard Disk Drive which are double that of the usual specs you'll find in other netbooks on the market today.
We were also pleased to see some useful applications already pre-installed, such as the RocketDock launcher to give it a more Mac-like feel, as well as Skype, Google Earth, avast! Antivirus, WinRAR, Adobe Reader, and Super Internet TV which give you easy access to over 2,000 Internet TV and Streaming Radio channels around the world.
One other interesting find was the iiView Help application which allows you to share your desktop remotely with an iiView Support Representative to get hands on help online should you need it. By the way, the iiView A2 comes with a 2 year replacement warranty as standard.
Overall, it's a very well built netbook and we hope you enjoyed watching the video.
