The N450 integrates the graphics and memory controller in the processor. So instead of having three chips (CPU, chipset, I/O controller hub), its now down to two (CPU and chipset).

I don't think those that have voted cold realise this is the new Pine Trail based Atom Netbooks which retail for around £300. The main advantage of the new Atom processors is their lower power consumption.

I'm not sure we should support these. The N450 may have a role in low power computing but it seems like a cynical ploy to prevent the growth of the popular and effective NVIDA graphics. N450 performance is generally rated little better than the earlier single core processors. The video component is unable to render graphics as well as the Ion and useless for HD etc.

Agreed:thumbsup:

Seems a good price, just bought an almost identical spec HP Mini for £300. To be fair I didn't go looking for a bargain and decided to buy the one that had the features that met my exact requirements.

My only issue with this machine is Aldi, who in the past have been very poor in my experience when returing faulty items. Others have had no problems so I'll vote this hot on price/spec basis.

So is this a good price?

Only is youve gotta factor in another £20 for 2gb memory

what netbook can you get for £280?

Then again, I suppose by the time you factor in an extra £60 on a £199 netbook for a 6 cell and a 2gb memory you havnt got a 3 year warranty in that

Went to 2 seperate Aldis both sold out on the day.

Useless.

I just picked one up from Aldi today for £260. Looks decent, and I think the price is more than fair considering the decent spec, 3 year warranty, etc. No HDMI though, which is disappointing. They only had one left.

However, I then wondered down the road into Staples and they were selling two 11inch screen laptops. One packard Pell for £399, and a Toshiba for £350. Both had battery lives comparable to 6 cell netbooks (i.e. 6-8 hours and above) and were proeprly specced laptops. Celeron or normal pentium processors, 250gb hdd, windows 7 64-bit, HDMI, dvd r/w drive, really light and compact .... got me thinking what the point is in buying a netbook for £260 when you can get a proper laptop with all the benfits of netbook for £350!

So I am going to return this netbook. I have come to the conclusion that if you are willing to spend more than £250, you should consider spending more and getting a compact laptop, which I am going to do.
