this is the rrp....?
#2
a quick google search shows slightly cheaper prices.
#3
RRP Price, but they do give you 2 years guarantee.

Any discount codes for John Lewis??
#4
With a 2 year guarantee ?

Edit... Thanks Loopie, beat me to it !

Same price here:

http://www.dixons.co.uk/martprd/store/dix_page.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@1330892661.1220620694@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccedadefdilddhgcflgceggdhhmdgmk.0&page=Product&fm=null&sm=null&tm=null&sku=656406&category_oid=

But you can use Egg card and quidco to get about £10 off. So sadly, not too hot.....Although it says 2 years warranty at John Lewis. There's no mention of warranty at Dixons ---- which is probably because they have a 3 year warranty plan at extra cost on the same page. It may be that there's a 2 year manufacturer warranty.

Any one clarify this situation as £10 for an extra year warranty would be worth it. Plus...I just somehow prefer dealing with John Lewis than Dixons...leaves me feeling...I dunno, cleaner!
#6
Play do the same price but cheaper w/Quidco.
#7
hot.
not very cheap indeed but 1 year extra warranty would probably cost more...and you will not have to deal with tech guys in case of troubles ;).Some of you probably know what I mean :-D

£239.99 at play http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/5825963/Acer-Aspire-One-A150L-Atom-N270-1-6GHz-512MB-120GB-8-9-Linux-NetBook-Blue/Product.html this works out a tiny bit cheaper (if you take into account i think 4% at play) plus you get an extra year warranty

'10 in stock' doesn't look promising here tho!

I believe it's only one year warranty as standard on this netbook but I've never found any official information on it.
#14
I think I'm going to end up with the MEDION AKOYA or the 4211

With linux OS, It dont look that cheap to me.
#15
This is sick!
#16
The 2 year warranty is well worth it buying it from John Lewis!!!!! I now wish I waited and bought mine from them aswell.

Well, I bought a new washing machine about a month ago and got it. Have they stopped it since then...I'll check.

[edit] just checked. yes they do 2.5% instant cashback. It used to be 5% for ages, and was even 8% during a promotion last year, but down to 2.5 now, I'm afraid.
#19
I bought an Acer Aspire One from Dixons last week for £229 with 120gb HD (only one year warranty :x still mustn't grumble)

Having Linux is great, required no set-up time as had Open Office 2.3, Firefox 2.0 and some great games preinstalled.

Fast boot up time, average battery life between 1.5 - 2.5 hours and very portable.

Two card readers, two USB ports and a monitor port which lets you run converted powerpoint presentations on a big screen.

Mine was white - everyone says it looks like an Apple laptop :-D

Hope this helps.

agree with other posters the 2nd year guarantee is worth more than a £10 or so reduction in price you might see elsewhere (though most are selling this at rrp)

I would be happy to pay £25.00 for an upgrade to 2 years

I used it to buy a computer with 10% cash back ages ago. The offer went to 5% two days later and I reurned the computer a day after that

Quids in. (If a little off topic!) :whistling:

We didn't need to enact the EC legislation because our consumer laws are considered as powerful as this already.

Urm... correct me I'm wrong, but a 2 year warranty as standard has been a european law for like 5 years. I know here in the UK we were slow to adopt the rule, but I'm sure we matched the european 2 year thing a while back.

Tell that to Dell lol. Generally need to pay for anything more than a year with them! :(
#26
Good price, but it is on Linux operating system a pose to Windows which maybe a problem for some!
#27
And a positive godsend for others.
#28
You could easily put Windows XP on this but you would need to pay a good quarter of the price on top of this for a genuine copy of XP.
#29
This laptop is amazingly good, so so useful for school
#30
What's the Linux distro like? Hopefully it's nice and stable but still has the advanced options available.
#31
Dont bother i brought one of these and took back next day u need xray eyes and its all built in shocking laptop:thinking:

Meant to be fairly decent, and yes, you can enable the advanced mode for the more well-established linux user :thumbsup:

No idea what to make of this. What would anyone need X-Ray eyes for with regard to using a netbook? Do you really need to see through the keys to the motherboard to operate it?
Besides, I thought the whole idea behind notebooks/netbooks was that all was built in. Or were you expecting the cpu, viewing panel and onboard graphics chip to come in separable bits?:?

Its called Linpus and is a version of Fedora (or based on?)

As mentioned above, the forums at [url]www.aspireoneuser.com[/url] are a great resource, although the AAO is pretty much ready to go with most of the stuff you'll need (Open Office, browser, media player etc.)

Yes, its small, but brilliant nonetheless. Quick to boot and rock solid wifi which picks up pretty much everything. Just what you want in a netbook. The only downside is the odd positioning of the trackpad buttons, which I still havent got used to, but hey ho.

Hi, quoting myself here but I took this laptop back today as the operating system had become corrupted. I couldn't fix it and don't know any Linux experts. Paid the extra for the Advent 4211. Similar size, 10" screen, 80gb hd + Windows XP. Had to download AVG anti-virus with it being XP operating system but otherwise its looking good.

Not happy as I really wanted to like Linux.
#36
this is a good price.

but who would get this over a toshiba portege r100((second hand)but usable)?

not me
#37
Does anyone know any reputable sellers where you can pick up the (edit) linux 1gb version in blue for a good price? Have found it for £259 on play, but seems a bit steep. Would love it if John Lewis were offering it for £259 with the 2 year warranty though!

Lots of people. Especially if you dont want something second hand. Or a 12" screen. Or want a proper guarantee. Or want something quick booting.
#39
by usable i meant to actually work on. I have seen these and if you can work on this then you are wierd. These are only good for a bit of internet browsing.

R100's are thinner than a macbook air too.

but if you want to play it with safety of 2 yrs but still my r100 is much better than this in my opinion
#40
what the.. this is the biggest deal i ever seen ... how do they it ?
