The Onkyo Sotec C204 netbook probably isn’t going to be sold outside of Japan anytime soon, so the fact that Portable Monkey kind of hates this netbook is mostly academic for me. But for those of you living in Japan, it sounds like you might want to steer clear of this machine.
It’s thin and light, weighing just 930 grams or just over 2 pounds. But it has a disturbingly slow SSD with write speeds that make the netbook a pain to use. The keyboard is cramped. The fan is noisy. And the battery only runs for 2 to 2.5 hours.
