When are people goign to realise that 10" budget netbooks are unusable junk?

Only good for backpacking.
#4
Unusable junk? I have had several and found them all to be extremely usable, especially for those of us who are out and about.
#5
Your quite wrong there, netbooks are brilliant for students and other people who need portability!

Indeed! I would quite like a netbook to put in my bag for accessing the university systems without having to nab one of the painfully slow computers next to some fat kid in the library. Sometimes I only need to do a quick bit of work in Word or double check a PDF file before a seminar. Would rather be able to do that than trek about for a computer to do that.

But you know you love the fat kid in the library, really.

Although the price is good for these, I'm not sure how usable their 10inch screens are. Think I'd prefer netbooks to switch to an 11 or 12 inch screen format before I'd be convinced I wanted one, even at this price point, as 10inches seems a touch cramped. I suppose you'd have to take a small hit on the weight though.

I've been watching the come and go on the eBay Argos Outlet for around £150 refurbished.

Planning to stick Windows 7 on it (as I have a few spare licenses) and give it to my son for Christmas.

Hot!

Well I use my little MSI Wind for when I'm travelling about and it is great on trains, etc. When I'm at home I plug it into a large monitor and have a wireless keyboard so it is perfect for playing on the internet, watching videos on youtube, text editing, email, etc.

Which is all I need it for.

You are going to stick win7 on this its really bad with windows7 installed, ive installed 100s of windows7's on loads of customers netbooks also including the family and with 1gb of memory they are bad anything over starter edition on 1gb of ram in my opinion is useless just sitting there its using anywhere from 500mb to nearly 700mb just running windows which means the swap file is constantly in use as theres not enough memory available to the system when doing anything.

The idea behind the netbook with XP is because XP happily runs away on 1gb of memory windows7 requires a minimum of 1gb but thats not recommended its like XP can run on 64mb of memory but it would be unusable. All these netbooks are very basic and are nothing new thats why the prices are so good but for me i hate them there to under powered and are useless.

hot from me for the price but if i had a second vote id vote cold as i hate them.

Hot!

I love my litte netbook, use it all the time.

10" screen is fine for browsing the net, viewing photo's & video's & even watching the odd movie
on USB DVD Writer.

I don't think you quite understand the point of a netbook.
Anything larger than about 10" is defeating the purpose of a netbook and you may as well go and buy a laptop instead.

This is a good price incidentally.

Bought 2 10 inch netbooks for my kids aged 13 and 10 - just the right size for them and keeps them off of my pc.

£130 each at argos ebay outlet.

Well the first netbook had a 7inch screen. They then went to 9inches. Now they're at 10inches. So you could say they've already moved away from the original idea. There's obviously a trade-off with weight, bulk and usability, but to me, they're still somewhere in the middle with functionality. Bigger and heavier than hey used to be, but with a screen and keyboard that's still a little too small.

I think I'd prefer them to get a little bigger with a 11 or 12 inch screen, even if it means slightly more weight and size.

Not sure what's happening with the quote there.

And I've also installed a stripped down version of Win7 on plenty of netbooks, and they run just fine with 2gb of RAM. Just add an SD card and relocate, or remove the page file, simples.

Only the ignorant will "realise" this, as it simply isn't true. Obvioulsy they are not ideal as your only PC, but that was never the intention of netbooks. I still have my Aspire One with it's 8.9" screen and use it regularly for web browsing/email, document editing when on the train etc. and also as a data logger in my car. One of the best IT purchases I've ever made.
#20
I have a asus 900 running netbook remix and it is just fine for what I bought it for at the time: surfing, text editing, ssh access to work infrastructure when out and about via 3g and occasional movie watching when on the train. Right tool for the job in my opinion. I would happily replace it with this model. hot vote from me.

Should get an iPad with all the USB functionality that comes with it......oh..........:(

The point I was making was that the keyboards are tiny and pretty poor quality. Dog slow and can't even play YouTube without juddering.

Fine if you're a kid and have small fingers, and fine if you only use it occasionally eg. backpacking across the globe, but for normal everyday use they are HIDEOUS. My old EeePC is just gathering dust.

If you want small and usable pay the extra and go for something like a M101Z.

In terms if power, not everybody uses netbooks for gaming or playing other media. This is similar to saying the computers five years ago was useless.
If it's good for backpacking only, then people that backpack will buy it.

I can play youtube videos perfectly well on my samsung netbook.

I find my netbook very usable and I'm not a kid. The keyboard is excellent on my netbook and I can actually type faster with my netbook than my 13inch laptop.

I use my netbook for work and general browsing. I don't know why you have the idea that people that buy netbooks use it for normal everyday use, most people treat it as a subnotebook.

I could not afford to pay around £450 for a netbook.
