Pros It is great for all word processing needs and the battery last four hours. The program I installed is MS Works Suite 2000. It may seem old, but it meets all the requirements for word processing, making cards and so on.
Cons I found no flaws that would concern someone who needs an inexpensive notebook to work with word and picture files. The only real con, and is in no way related to the X41, is that XP is not supportd.
Summary If you are on a tight budget and need to have projects done for home, school (or like me want to write a book) it is a great purchase. I paid $210 in 2011 for it and its dock (required if you want added USB plugs and DVD drive).
