Perfect for students who need something cheap to maybe take into lectures to type notes down - I prefer it to writing. Has Wi-Fi so internet connection is not a problem, can be used for IM.

This is a very low spec machine, not suited to much other than word processing and the occasional web browse - Hence the very low price tag.

You can change the operating system to Debian or Android if you don't like Windows C.E.

The CE OS is really dated (think 1990's) - but if you really can put a decent Android build on it, then maybe this is a bargain....
If you get stung by customs,this cost a lot more............

Debian with GUI on this would be horrific.
I like your gusto for posting this on here as these usually go ice cold! I agree that with a tweak i.e. debian or Android this would be very usable for lectures etc. Only think is I do question the build quality on these and how long the parts will last, especially considering I would have this think in my bag all the time. I'm not sure it could take the punishment, but at £50ish it isn't as risky as plunking my M11x in bag!

True, I bought a 80gb ssd from the states, payed £160. Customs put an extra £40 on top of that and held it for 3 weeks. Don't think i'd bother buying from the states again unless its something of low value.
Bought some bike cranks for 150.00 from ebay, only cost me 25.00 customs, not sure if bike equipment is less, but was happy with 25.00, thought it would be more
What would be the benefit of this compared to say (http://www.dealextreme.com/p/7-touch-screen-lcd-google-android-2-2-tablet-pc-w-wifi-camera-tf-arm-v5-349-79mhz-70053), a 7-inch touchscreen/android ipad-like device which you can get for around £60 now?

£53 for this sounds good though!

Ah well, almost expected this to go cold :L

I'll refrain from more of the corruscating comments I made about the Ubisurfer.

128Mb is useless, you'll be paging to flash memory all the time unless the OS has been very cleverly designed. Linux typically adapts well to this sort of environment. WinCE has a history of supporting low end devices, but that would make a 10 year old system. My 1990's system has 512Mb RAM.

3USB is nice but I don't think it makes the specs usable.
Why would anyone do this to themsefves? Why set your self up for so much frustration and annoyance? Windows CE is widely derided as pretty much useless on old fashioned PDAs. Why would you even consider using it on (something vaguely resembling) a laptop?

I think the customs risk, long delivery time with DX and the fact that a low end real netbook these days goes for just over £100 for a lot more horsepower (comparatively) makes this a pretty poor deal. Good for what you are getting but if I was looking to spend money for something to word process I'd consider a netbook just for the flexibility offered by one compared to something like this.
