Pro Looks like a regular laptop
The S21e is for all intents and purposes a regular 'big person' laptop. It depends on the kid, but some kids around 12-14 start wanting to become an adult, and this laptop will be perfect for those who aren't into super flashy 'childish' colors.
Pro Decent performance
The 2.16GHz Celeron N2840 processor paired with 2GB of RAM provides lackluster performance. In Geekbench 3, it scored 1694 (below the HP Steam's 1804 score, also below the EeeBook X205TA's 2212 score).
However, it performs admirably in OpenOffice testing - 25% faster than the EeeBook X205TA and the same as the HP Steam 11. It also manages to transfer files quickly (compared to the competition), at 53 BM/s (EeeBook X205TA achieved 41.3MB/s, and the Steam 11 achieved 44MB/s).
Pro Includes all the major ports
With 2 USB ports (1x2.0, 1x3.0 port) a micro HDMI port, and Micro SD card reader, the S21e offers much of the same connectivity as a full-sized laptop
Pro Pretty good keyboard
The keyboard is a regular layout that has been shrunk down to fit in a 11.6" laptop's body. For the price, it's a good keyboard, although that isn't saying too much.
Pro Doesn't get hot
There is no fan, which means that the S21e will get a bit warm. It doesn't however get hot - all temperatures remained cool enough for comfortable use.
Con Short battery life
Continuous web surfing on 44% brightness, this laptop lasted 5h36m which is shorter than both the HP Steam 11 (6h34m) and Asus EeeBook X205TA (12h05m).
Con Slow touchpad
The cursor is noticeably slow, and gestures provide choppy animations. Selecting text is harder than it should be, even on a very low budget laptop.
Con Small, poor display
The 11.6" display is small, and the viewing angles aren't great either. Colors are washed out, and glare is an issue. The resolution (1366x768) isn't too bad for a screen it's size and the brightness is fair.
