Hi, was hoping for advice on a new netbook..have £220 to spend and really only surf the net and listen to music, facebook etc. I know nothing at all about important things to look out for so would appreciate recommendations :)
thank you :)

Are you looking for brand new hardware or refurbished hardware?
#2
Hi scottyboy, brand new
#3
for me i would stick to toshiba, samsung or dell they seem to be the best for netbooks. Remember its not just about speed etc the quality of the screen and internals . The guarantee and tech updates are really important

my friend has a Toshiba and it has a really good battery life.
Will have a look thanks

thanks for that scrapsmac, I am interested in this one.
How do I add the other 2gig ram?
and also what do the comments mean about bad tracking pad?
I really haven't a clue about the jargon, sorry!

Good for the price IMHO as Crucial UK were charging more than that.

Installing the RAM is pretty straightforward - if you refer to the following video (apologies it's in French) you'll get a visual guide on how to do this but bear in mind that you need to ensure the netbook is not connected to the mains & also the battery is removed before attempting to start this.

Note it's at the beginning of the video that the memory upgrade slot is on the right-hand side - you can search for other videos though if your wanting it in English to make it easier.
