Is the above link the same system at a lower price?

I liked the look of the Advent 4211

Tescos have the same system for £249 i think

The Advent at PC world gets good reviews, I think its the same system as the Medion Aldi had last week and that was ment to be really good!

The eee 901 is probably the most portable machine as it's got great battery life (5 hours compared to the usual 2-3) and is also one of the smaller machines around (it's about an inch shorter than the acer for example).

thank you for your advice. Im just a bit confused which one to actually go for. Either the Advent, Acer or the eee 901.

ive had a look at the eee 901 but it has a small hard drive compared to the Acer one.

which one would be value for money?

any one?

Im thinking of going for the asus eee 1000, 40gb ssd, lgb ram, linux pre installed. Bigger than the orther eee's, bigger screen, keyboard, etc...
Seen them for around £375.
They also do a windows version which I think is cheaper for some bizzar reason, unless ive got it wrong.

If you're only going to use it for internet and word processing why do you need a big hard drive? You certainly don't need much for the internet and rich text documents tend to be a few megabytes at most.

I'd favour the 901 over the 1000 as the 1000 doesn't add much. You do get the extra storage but the screen is the same resolution, it's physically bigger and heavier and the price is much higher.

Which one to go for generally depends on what you'll be doing with it.

The acer for example has a glossy screen so that's going to be reflective in direct sunlight (outside for example) but it does have lots of storage capacity if you want to load it up with movies.

The acer and the advent both have better keyboards than the eee, but they also have worse speakers.

For your stated requirements you could consider the HP mininote.

You've missed out on a whole day that you could have spent loving your Advent 4211. Go and buy it now. Why insure it?
#13
the HP mininote sounds pretty good, the cheapest ive found is £349 but thats Linux. anyone know of any better deals?
#14
Do read some reviews as it has quite a lot of flaws as well as good points but for your use I think a lot of them like the slow processor won't matter. Linux is probably the best option since the other choice is Vista which apparently doesn't run very well on it, I haven't seen it below £350.
