I just bought a NEO B2161N. I took it because it was cheap. Considering the price, the specs are Intel Celeron M 550 (2. GHZ), 1 GHZ RAM, 80 GB HDD, Camera, Mic, Ports, Video Card with Shared memory, CD-DVD Combo. I got it for 22,500 Pesos which is about 450 USD. How do you see this unit? Is it good for networking purposes? Thanks and Happy posting!

I am considering of buying a Neo by the end of the month. Since you guys experienced this malfunctions, Well I wont buy that brand anymore..Maybe, you guys have other brands to suggest..I'm a heavy user and now my desktop lcd is blinking more often from old age maybe .Got this two years ago. i wanna buy a laptop so i could do my business wherever i go..only this time since Im a SAHM, wherever part of the house..

Well, it's really up to your usage. My Neo doesn't put me down. Though I'm really considering that it's really too early to say.

Personally, I don't like Neo laptops. When I was just planning to get myself a laptop, I did a search about Neo and I found so many negative feedbacks from other Neo users themselves. Yes, Neo may cost cheaper as compared to other brands but it is not advisable for heavy users -- well, there are Neo users who even said that their units only lasted eight months. Also, there's my sister's Neo notebook which heats up a lot that it is a must to have the cooling pad on everytime she's using it. I'm a heavy user and my Asus unit is on almost 24/7 yet it never heats up like my sister's Neo. Oh, I'm just so glad I didn't go for a Neo myself.

Thanks for the information. Fortunately, even if I have a Neo Laptop today, i'm not that of a heavy user, at least somehow, it is safe from overheating...

I have NEO Q-note, which I bought March 2007, contrary to most of the replies here I have positive remarks about the Neo Q-note I bought. It's been over a year and it is perfectly doing fine. I'm sort of heavy user since I use this more than 10 hours a day, that's why I'm thinking of buying a cooling pad to ease up heating.
