Different, your link is for linux, and 512 ram,

This one has 1meg ram, and XP
#3
personally prefer linux myself :D it doesnt need too much ram as its more stable than Winblows :D

but yea, no probs
#4
you can get the linux aspire for 199 from various places, such as....

or from tesco itself for 198

Different spec again, this deal is for an A150 with a 120 gig drive etc not the 8 gig machine.

Might be worth holding off purchase though, lots more companies are launching these now inc DELL & Samsung, so prices should come down. Also Acer are launching with 160 gig HDD and larger battery soon!.
#7
i bet within a few months these'll be knocking out at £150 for christmas
#8
very possible,

too small for my usage ;( or i would have 1
#9
The equivalent spec OS Linux is £229.00, I guess your paying the extra £40.00 for the XP license ?

Interestingly, you can already pre-order it on Amazon US for $ 400 (!).

The £ 269 for the one with the above spec is the lowest price I've seen after all discounts, cashback etc - and I've been ogling this thing for a few weeks now.

So if you want it now, hot.
#11
Been this price for 2 days now, thought I posted it, I ordered it yesterday. Its the cheapest price for this and with the added bonus of it being Tesco's it is extremely easy to take back if anything goes wrong.

You'll get hit with customs charges if you buy that, though, bringing the total to about what this particular model is anyway (Which is probably what the new one will retail for by the time it comes out and prices have dropped).

You are right, of course. Only any good if you are going to the States anyway or someone can bring it for you.

The bigger battery alone is worth waiting for though, imho.
#14
I ordered the 1gb linux one yesterday, going to collect it in store tomorrow.

Those waiting for the 6 cell one do know that the 6 cell battery will stick out by about an inch? Some pictures here. Im just going to get another 3 cell battery, i dont see many occasions where ill need to use the laptop for more than 5/6 hours and won't be near a mains socket.

The one you mention above, comes with 512mb memory for around £230. A version that comes with 1gb memory but linux can be had for around £250, so its around £20 for the XP licence when compared with this deal.

Re. OP's deal - this is an excellent price - John Lewis' is £299 (albeit with 2 year guarantee)
#16
There's so many different specs with this machine, 512 ram, 1 gig ram, ssd, hdd, linux, xp etc and then the 2 colours.

This one is the highest spec available
#17
Not a good time to be buying any of these at the moment.

There's a price drop on the way, which is already in place in the US and coming shortly in the UK. You can pre-order this one from Amazon.com (US only) for £399.95 - around £270 with VAT added to it. For that you get a better spec - plus of course the far better 6 cell battery which would cost around £60-70 just on its own.

You do realise that you won't be able to use it for more than 2/2.5 hours with the 3 cell, you won't even get close to 5/6 hours.
#19
I don't think this one has Bluetooth...or does it? I still think Advent 4211 is better with same price.
#20
Just to let people know who are contemplating getting one of these:

They are amazing! :thumbsup:

I have a 1GB White Linux version and its great. Really small, but very usuable, even for prolonged periods of typing. The screen quality is really good as well - bright and crystal clear. It even has a web cam.

Built in bluetooth would' ve been nice though and I only get about 2.5 hrs out the 3 cell battery, but other than I love it. It replaced my Apple iBook and I've not regretted it for a second

Oyyy.co.uk were fantastic when I had 1 order off them. Excellent customer service.

I would not agree, as much as I like the advent the two people I know who have ordered one have had it delivered not working. The only retailers that stock it are bloody terrible, PCW, Dixons and Pixmania. I would rather get something else than that and the Aldi Medion equivalent was meant to be **** so I avoided that and my Aspire one came this morning.

Its pretty damn good, and people talking about the 6 cell one? its bloody hideous, pokes out a good inch ish and adds alot of weight to it, im not going to be away from a plug socket long enough for me to lose the charge, not to mention it wont be here for months and the price you are stating is the American one, this model at Tesco is 300 everywhere else and the newer one will easily be 300+ on entry to the UK market. The new dell one is about £100 less in the US aswell.

Does anyone know if you can play movies on these things if you plug in external dvd?
#27
At this kind of price - the MSI Wind or Advent 4211 wins every time.

Voted Cold

2x2.5hrs=5hrs, so close enough with 2 3cell batteries as nexx was proposing.

The larger batteries for the Wind/Akoya/4211 are meant to be less unsightly, though. So I will wait.
#29
Ok...so which one is better
1, Acer One (as above)
2, Advent 4211
3, Asus EEE PC901
#30
@BeerGoggles, yes it can play rips of DVDs fine, even (close to) HD 720 was fine on mine.

I have the Linux Aspire One which was £179 using 5% off and QuidCo a few weeks ago. I love it, using it now to post this in fact, and for that price it's the best value netbook on the market in my opinion.

But for £270, I would probably recommend the Eee 901 if you can handle the smaller keyboard. It has a better battery, Draft N wireless for the same price. Alternatively the Advent is pretty good, but it much bigger than the Aspire. I would recommend a trip to PC World/Currys to try them out before buying.

I find the keyboard is very important as I write a lot of e-mail or posts like this on forums.
#31
The Asus keyboard was way to fiddly for me, if you look at the benchmarks of netbooks the Acer One was one of the best performing, was outdone by sony though. Msi wind is to expensive and the Advent clone, although nice its only available from ****** retailers and is alot chunkier than the smaller netbooks. If the Advent was available in Tescos I would have got it but im using this netbook for Uni now as my sole computer (limit myself to this and I wont be one of the geeks who sits in his room all day playing games) and if any problems occur its very easy to locate your nearest Tesco, take it in and get a refund. I plan to do this in about 10 months anyway and tell them its overheating then get the latest model haha:) but as seen as it is Acer im sure it will overheat before then.

youknowwho

Both Advent and MSI wind are more expensive, plus have smaller hard disks, and are bulkier, but do have an extra inch on the screen, albeit at the same resolution.
All depends on what is most important to you I suppose. I think the advent looks cheap, costs £11 more ,and the Wind is about £60 more expensive.

Personally, I only vote hot or cold on price, not personal preference, and as this deal is about £30 cheaper than other stockists it's hot is it not?

where did you get it for 179?

for what its worth I have the 901, bought it a week or so ago for 278 (price match at pc world with eBuyer) I did a LOT of research as I'm a bit of a geek and tried them all out for size. IMO if you already have a laptop (i have a 17") the the 901 is he smallest by far, its tiny - and the battery is undoubtably the best lasting up to 8 hours on XP. For me, it means I can chuck this thing in he car/work/home/coffee shops - no worries about needing to charge, no moving parts. Wifi is great, screen is nice, and did I mention its tiny :-P

However, if this is your sole laptop(netbook) then I would consider a bigger HD and keyboard, ie this aspire one. Unless you don't mind the small HD and small keyboard.

For the 901 there is also a great forum http://forum.eeeuser.com/ with people explaining all sorts of hacks, updates, advice and so on. extended batteries for the 901 are already available relatively cheaply, and replacement pci-e SSD cards are just starting to come on the market to replace the internal ones with up to 32GB.

Anyway, I'm bias cos I now have a 901, but I love it!! The two deciding factors for me were Size and Battery life.

Hope this helps someone

If you want to have Windows XP then I would buy the same speced version with Linux on instead and then install Windows XP using a USB memory stick, all you need is a spare Windows XP licence.

PC World mail order. It was posted here a couple of weeks ago when it was reduced to £199.99. There was a 5% discount code available and buying via Quidco gave me another ~£10 back so the total was £179.60

If you look on the Aspire One Users forum, there are details on the 20th August entry. Not sure the 5% discount is still available, but Quidco will give you some money back. http://www.aspireoneuser.co.uk/

That's a pretty good price for 6600mAh battery, cheaper than what was estimated to be £70. Think I'd like to see pics of it first as it will probably add quite a bump to the bottom of the laptop. For now mine is OK as I'm never far from a power socket :)
