the 8gb version has a solid state hard drive though, which has its benefits.

Yes it's also available in blue.

3 cell battery = 2-2.5 hours.... thats BAD for one of these netbook, I was away to buy this until I read that bit. Good price, but at that sort of battery life... not for me.

For those who want to put XP on this model with a USB Drive (I used a cheapo Kingston Datatraveller 100) I made a vid here:

For the same money you could have bought an Advent 4211.

This has a 10" screen, 1.6 ghz Atom processor, XP already installed and an 80 Gb hard drive.

I'm using mine to type this. :thumbsup:

Just came back from Costco. For those who are members or know someone who is, it looked like the XP version of the A150 is £234, just a fiver more. And, yes, it comes in the same blue/black livery as the A110.

Can't be 100% sure, because Linpus Lite has been made to look like XP to the max, and I only glanced at it. Perhaps, someone else can confirm.

Sorry to doubt you, but does that price include VAT ?

Oh, and a Gigabyte of RAM (I added another Gigabyte to mine for £18 delivered - there is an instructional video on Youtube). :)

If you buy the 512mb version its only £209.99
http://www.play.com//ProductOutline.aspx?title=5825963&r=PCSH

Then add a 1gb upgrade for £10.49
http://www.play.com//ProductOutline.aspx?title=3511992&r=PCSH

you get a 1.5GB version for £220.48

Beware though - You need to be a bit techy to install the RAM, as there is no expansion door on the bottom of the Aspire. However its not a difficult job, but involves opening the laptop. . . there are a few videos on youtube showing you how to upgrade RAM and Hard Drive. . . . there are also videos showing you how to install XP from a 1gb USB memory dongle.

*** UPDATE *** Just ordered this and got £8.82 from Quidco so deal now works out at £211.66

Linpus has a main screen with large icons split into 4 sections spread across the whole screen instead of an XP desktop with smaller icons aligned to the left and the start button giving access to everything else.

Play.com
the Aspire one has an 8.9" CrystalBrite LED backlit display
So you'd rather pay £60 more for an equivalent 8GB SSD model?

I bought an Asus eee 901 and best purchase I ever made - 6.5 hr battery life without turning anything off (although I could), XP, solid state drive. Because I wanted the portability, I couldn't see the point of something where you could never be that far away from a plug.

I would hardly call it a techy job. I am partially sighted and I upgraded the RAM on my Advent 4211 without any problems and it is a pretty similar chassis.

It is important that you earth yourself before and during the job as RAM doesn't like static!

There are 9 screws on the Advent (I put them on a white saucer so I knew where they were) and the whole base comes off. When you lift the base off, you can see the existing RAM soldered to the motherboard and a blank bay next to it. You just clip in the new RAM (wiggling it slightly to ensure it is secure) and there you have it - job done!

The computer runs noticably faster when doing downloads or playing videos. :thumbsup:

Well, quite. Except it was not at an open desktop. Instead the screen was locked with a log-in screen that looked identical to XP. If you look at the Linpus titlebars, colourscheme and widgets Linpus has clearly aped XP, so you need more than a casual glance to be certain that it is one or the other.

It's not carp but you only get 20 Gb of hard drive, a 9" screen and 800 Mghz processor. Okay for surfing the net asnd sending emails (which is what all these ultra-portable laptops are for).

My personal problem with it would be the Linux operating system as I hate Linux - but that's only me!

Been thinking about getting a netbook for ages now, but just a bit apprehensive about it.

I know that i can put XP on this, so that is a good thing, but what is the likelyhood of watching movies on this and and maybe just using a couple of photo editing programmes on it.... not talking hardcore graphic work, just simple viewing, cropping and maybe a bit of Autocad work?

Basically i guess i am asking, what can this baby handle?

Any help would be much appreciated,
#31
i want a computer or netbook for my daughter and i dont know what to buy...she will use it for msn and shopping at tesco-lol

Any suggestion welcome as her birthday is next month..21st birthday so i can spend more than £239...
any help appreciated as i now got a headache ;)

I've been thinking about a netbook too my ageing Acer laptop will need a replacement soon and i figure that a netbook is just what i need for what i use it for but what's the boot-up time on a netbook like? is linux any quicket thanXP? what happens to the boot-up time when you put anti-virus on it? can anyone help me out? also, i'd be using it for the internet a lot - what's the battery life like if the wifi is left on?
I know it's a lot of questions but i can't seem to find out the answers from anywhere. I'd be grateful for any help
#34
Excellent deal, heat added. As I have posted on HUKD before I have one of these Aspire Ones and have been very impessed with it. Bought the 512 version of this, upgraded to a gig, installed xp and added a mini bluetooth dongle. Works really well for studying and general internet usage - you dont need any more power. Deffinetely the best netbook out there at the moment!

The new Samsung NC10 netbook looks like it might be worth considering. It comes out in a couple of weeks. £299 for the XP version with a six cell battery, 1GB memory, 160GB hard drive, 10 inch LED screen. If John Lewis is going to stock it (likely) then they will probably offer a 2 year guarantee too.
#36
as a Tech let me just tell you that as soon as you open the case to upgrade the ram your warranty is void and they will know that you have even if you remove it so not so clever really.
#37
If you don't mind refurbished I would seriously consider this -

http://www.dixons.co.uk:80/martprd/store/dix_page.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@0220409956.1224529249@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccfiadefhhjldeicflgceggdhhmdgmk.0&page=Product&fm=null&sm=null&tm=null&sku=118681&category_oid=-35120

Search Google for reviews :thumbsup:

Saying that, the Aspire One is a good machine though if you must get one buy it from John Lewis for the 2 year guarantee (for the sake of a few quid extra:whistling:)
#38
It is a great deal but......the new verison should be here Jan, available now in US/Canada. Same CPU/Mem but 6 Cell battery (5.5 hours, more like it) & 160GB HD. For those of you that can't wait, I'm still debating....I found a store in Canada thats shipping these to UK £208 + £38 Shipping 5/7 day service. No duty on these, but you will get stung for VAT on entry. If you want their details send me a message. Why can't they just bring out a 3G, Bluetooth system now arhhh!

Boot up time is about 15 secs and another 10 or so for it to find my wireless connection (on Linux).

As its Linux, you dont need antivirus software (yay).

I leave the wifi on most the time and wth usual surfing habits, I get 2 - 2.5 hours easily.
