its a good price so i voted hot, but i think its better to get the Asus eee pc at amazon for £244 which has 2 yr warranty, 7hr battery aswell http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/448527/asus-eee-pc-1000h-whi066x-netbook-2/
#6
good offer (though personally I don't think they are that much better over the old version to warrent the increase in cost), but I hate the all caps, makes it hard to read...

If I want to spend £250 on a laptop what would you recommend?

Its now £258, and has a slightly smaller screen.

However, if there's a problem, you walk into a John Lewis shop and its fixed - rather than the bother with Amazon and couriers etc.

I've found amazon great in this respect. All you have to do is box it, print a label, take it to the post office and the post office gives you a receipt and amazon foot the bill. Probably easier than trapsing to a John Lewis.

Thanks for the info, so £300 would get me a descent one.

I said at least £300, i recommend this one http://www.dabs.com/products/acer-ex5630ez-pdc-t4200-2gb-250gb-15-4--dvd-rw-vhp-5K4M.html then u can buy this at later date http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/453897/acer-advantage-silver-bundle-2-year/ good spec for the price plus you can upgrade to windows 7 for free.
#15
if you are on a tight budget for a laptop I have always found laptops Direct a great web shop to get offers on.
Just remember choose the best CPU (Avoid Celeron and Semperon) and screen you can afford (Memory and Hard drives can be upgraded later).
Stick with a big named make and take extra warranty if you can.

Also a good site for Dcheap Dell Laptops is http://www.mcscom.co.uk/

1. It's an Acer.
2. It's within a tenner of the vastly superiour Samsung N series.
3. I wouldn't trust a time-limted mobile broadband deal.

IMHO this is a far better proposition. I have been using one for a week and the 6 cell battery is faultless. With free next day delivery and a free Windows 7 upgrade and 36 quid cheaper it's a steal.

Save yourself £40 or £50 buying the ASUS 1000H from Amazon - vastly superior netbook with same 2 year warranty.

Would go for the Samsung NC10 over this, much better unit.

Personally I'd also recommend trying http://medionshop.co.uk They are refurbs (which tbh you wouldn't know, I think they are just 14 day returns under DSR) with 90 days warranty, but they do tend to be very good specs for the money....

eg:
* Geniune Microsoft® Windows Vista® Home Premium
* Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core processor T2310
* VIA Chrome9 HC DiretX 9 graphics with 128MB shared memory
* High definition audio with 2 loudspeakers
* 15.4" TFT WXGA widescreen colour display with 1280 x 800px
* 16:10 for opitimised DVD playback
* Dual Layer DVD-Writer/-ReWriter
* 160GB Hard Drive
* 2GB DDR II RAM
* Wireless LAN 802.11b/g with up to 54 Mbit/s
* 10/100 Mbit Fast Ethernet LAN port
* Integrated VGA webcam
* 1 x Express Card/54
* 4 x USB 2.0
* 1 x LAN (RJ45)
* 1 x VGA out
* 1 x Microphone in
* 1 x Line out

£209...

Offers change daily depending on stock, so just see how you go. I got a rebranded Toshiba similar spec as above but withcard reader, e-sata & DVI / HDMI / SPDIF for £249 :)

broadband package.....no use to me if it's a landline one as we have the dreaded KC monopoly round here.

Couldn't agree more. Rather go for Samsung brand, with better battery life, and samsung being samsung - the after sales service is better.

Here is a site that lets you compare the test results of most netbooks net to each other graphically.

Go to the end of the graphs - and then select the four you wish to compare....

http://www.laptopmag.com/review/laptops/asus-eee-pc-1000he.aspx?mode=benchmarks&cids=1885%2C1852%2C1941%2C1855%2Cca


The same site also has reviews beween the five netbooks they consider best - the Samsung N110 blows the old NC10 out the water from other reviews on the site.

Unfortunately theToshiba they consider to be the best is unavailable in the UK

Assumption and experience, I have an NC10 and never had problems with it which is experience. And I assume Samsungs after sales care can't be as bad as Acers (of which I have experience)

I'm going cold on this one, I have an Acer One 8.9", I love it to pieces, got it for £150 on the Asda deal, paid £40 for an 8 hour battery............so why would I want to pay another £110 on top for this? for £300 I'd be wanting a 15" laptop..and like Dell's seems like theres a lot of crap thrown in that you'd need to spend half an hour getting rid of...

So basically you paid £190 - and don't think its worth £110 for the larger screen extra warranty and presumably larger storage capacity?

I can see your point to an extent, as although I think the £110 is justified - the best deal for what I was looking for was the 3G SSD version with the smaller screen and Linux (which has now expired - and was only £160).

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/436652/acer-aspire-one-a110-agw-3g-intel-a/

Basically - as I wanted something to use on the train/filghts/holiday - so SSD was more robust, 8.9 was more portable, linux starts faster, and the drive size is fairly irrelevant as if I would need loads of storage, its easier to take an external drive to use when on holiday.

Its only issue was the battery life.

Hopefully it will be on offer again soon.

hard disk in mine is same size 160gb

screen isn't an issue for me 1" on this wouldn't grab me that much

deal on here last week Acer 2 year warranty £25

I'm not knocking your find as such mate, just don't think the price at £300 is good, max £250 yeah.....again just my thoughts...

whats wrong with Acer??I've got the A150 and also bought the NC10 thinking I would sell the A150. prefer the Acer to the "vastly superior" NC10, which unlike my little Acer has now got a faulty screen.

Acer are not know for good quality, Samsung is. So the badge on the front is more likely to mean a better product.

Yeh but my Acer cost almost half the price of the Samsung and it aint broke:whistling: The NC10 is well over hyped, the track pad is dreadfall

The 1005HA is a great little netbook at a decent price (PC Pro Winner), but the Windows 7 free upgrade only applies to PCs loaded with Vista Premium or Vista Ultimate. As the EEE PC uses XP, it doesn't qualify for the free upgrade.
#37
Returning my "vastly superior", better quality, well built faulty Samsung nc10 for a full refund and keeping my poorly built, inferior quality working Acer.:-D

cant be happier to get rid of the nc10 and get a refund:thumbsup:
