"From my hands-on experience, the TN71M leaves much to be desired in terms of overall build quality. The plastic case was very cheap and flexible, and would bend with the slightest touch. While the specifications are fine for a notebook of that size, without a durable shell it would fall apart in a matter of weeks."

"Overall the notebook has plenty of potential if Clevo fixes the plastic body of the tablet. You know a notebook feels pretty bad when some other budget machines start to feel like ruggedized notebooks in comparison."
