Do people not realise that it's the same company. I.e. It's the same stock

Not quite right. Comet is not part of DSG.

Can't find any. There was one for 5% off in april (YAWAPR5 or something similar) and one for 6% of Linux netbooks (LINUX6), but they both recently expired.

i'm tempted but think i'll hold off - the 512mb ram would need upgraded and opening the case to do this would knacker the warranty on what is already a refurb.

What exactly do you want to do on it? I can tell you it works absolutely fine on XP with 512mb, there really is no need to upgrade unless you want Vista or 7 on it. At the end of the day its a netbook and if you're using it as such it flies on XP - I've run a broswer, an mkv file, an mp3, virus scan and utorrent at the same time with no hiccups or stutters.
#11
Just be careful as the daft sods put norton 360 in my basket as well... Doesn't run on linux, so don'ty know what that's all about lol
Thanks OP finally decided to go for this... Hope it's in good nick, it does say like new so here'zs hoping. Can always send back anyway :)
#12
I wouldn't call 120GB "whopping" in this day and age.

Still seems a great deal, and the 1 year warranty would be good as well, but the 3 year warranty costs more than the machine!

The haters can bung WIndows 7 on it for a year for free - Release Candidate out tomorrow

I ran a 7 beta on 512 meg no prob in Feb - Fire fox and open office were fine .

7 is a vista revision but they have paid real attention to netbooks

I had graphic embelishments , indexing and restore turned off

Netbooks are what they are -if you start howling about Gimp ,CS3 etc then you are in the wrong thread

It shows as an 80GB hard drive when added to basket......:thinking:

I thought minimum requirement for 7 was 1gb ram?

I note what the advert says BUT I thought these had 1gb - not 512mb.

No. But no operating system will save you from good old-fashioned criminality like phishing, so don't assume that you are safe to do silly things on the internet because you're running Linux.

No quite safe without with most viruses being Windows based.

For those that do not lynux use W.I.N.E
#22
Great price, been meaning to buy a netbook with decent storage space but didn't want to spent more than £150.

Is it easy enough to install xp/upgrade memory?

I bought a few of these (25 or so) when Asda were doing them, and out of all the ones I bought only one had 120GB, all the others had 160GB, the boxes stated 120 but for some reason most of the blue ones were fitted with 160GB.

You won'd find any Netbooks with harddrives bigger than 160Gb and Windows XP. Microsoft do not license XP for netbooks with bigger harddrives, and RAM is limited to 1Gb too I believe (not sure about the last one).

MS don't want netbooks (not the official name, they call them UP) to nibble on the market share of laptops with big harddrives adn more RAM.
#25
Do these have USB ports?
#26
Yes they have USB.
#27
Seems like a decent deal to me.

i am intrigued to know your reasoning for this statement, i can't see why MS would care either way, as long as theyre getting their license fee from the manufacturers.

they are, after all, primarily a software company.
#30
Bought one of these from currys, Will install Windows 7 when it comes out tomorow, Wouldnt mind if it had a 160gb hdd in it :P
#31
Has anyone actually managed to install xp on this model (which comes with Linux)? I read in a message board that some people have not been able to do it for some reason.
#32
These netbooks just dont seem to be selling for less than £130 second hand/used. I have been scanning the local ad papers, websites and auction sites but just cant find one for the price i want.

Hopefully when the next batch of netbooks come out these current versions should drop to the sub-£100 priced (second hand/used).

It's true, as is the 1Gb thing.

You're right, MS are indeed a software Company. They have differing license levels for oems, which have differing costs. MS extended the life of XP for netbooks by having hardware conditions with the license, to push the more expensive Vista license on more powerful laptops.

It is looking like MS will have a Windows 7 'starter' edition for netbooks which will only allow 3 full apps to run at once (excludes antivirus and similar processes). Why? Because it will be cheap and not eat into sales of more expensive licenses.

He is exactly right.

MS stipulated as part of extension on XP life span ( it was extended by approx 2 years)
They were desparate to differentiate between Vista and XP
And somehow imply Vista was for Fullpower machines , but they knew Netbook market was expanding like crazy so they responded with this exact requrement.

If your intrested the limit used to be 120gigs ,but even MS had to increase it

___________________________________________

Windows 7 minimum requirements is 1 gig -no arguement there.
Mine was a beta with all things turned off

Please see the following

and
http://www.centralgadget.com/windows-7-runs-fine-on-512-mb-lack-of-drivers-main-problem-431/
The good news is, that Windows 7 Public Beta runs just fine on 512 MB of RAM. In our testing, it uses about 70% of the available RAM without any applications running


Tomorrow is the defining day - Free for a year - I reckon folks will make it fit

I installed XP on the 8gb SSD with no problem, but it wouldnt work through USB, i think i did something wrong, so i had to use external drive..

What is so bad with Linux for this netbook?

Is there a pixel promise with these? I have found that some of the refurbs have dead pixels :s

Have installed xp on 3 netbooks so far one was a 8 gig model the other was the hardrive 120 gig unit, the hardrive version is faster than the solid state memory model. No need to upgrade memory, it works well with 512

MS get a lower license fee for XP, and I believe they get even less for netbook versions. So cutting down the amount of machines that can use it safeguards profits. OEM have to pay more license for Vista, so forcing them to use Vista means more money for MS.
