I could be wrong but I think the processor on this is even less power than the standard Atom N270 found in most netbooks?
#3
Seem like a lot of money for something that can not even play flash. These netbooks are a gimmick.
#4
in the comments under that review it mentions that ASUS provide an overclocking tool, which will take the CPU from 1.3 to 1.7, anyone got any reviews of how it performs at that frequency?
That might make the CPU a little better than the nseries atoms.

Id pay £50 more for the HP mini 311c with the Nvidia ION, better graphics, screen ect

My daughter has the mini, I use it sometimes and its brilliant. I bought for her for £269 minus £20 Quidco when it was on offer (this link).

This laptop is so slow it is virtually unusable - even opening a web page takes an age - this is due to the chipset as much as the processor. Intel designed the cpu+chipset for MIDs not netbooks.

Yes netbooks really are very slow.

i have the n270 acer aspire one with 1.5gb ram and im getting totally fed up of it due to its slowness - its regularly maintained also. tempted to get a laptop for the performance gap. the size and weight fad has worn off long ago.

it gets very slowly using firefox.

Netbooks are just as laughable as these new tablet pcs. For the same amount of money or even £100 more you can get a decent laptop that isnt deadly slow and can actually handle average use and maybe even casual / moderate games.

Exactly. Too many people think cheap = value for money

I have to disagree with the comments on netbooks being no good, I have the Asus Seashell (1008) that was on here about 2 weeks ago, it was £199 Inc p&p and that has the faster N280 (1.66mhz) processer, now that is quick! I have no problems with it, battery is good, quick start up time, looks to die for, for under £200!! Sorry, but for that price a cheap laptop cannot even compare.

I have this netbook too. I run something called Tiny7, google for it, it works brilliantly, very fast. Much faster than XP and quicker than the standard Linux that was on it from the start. I think there's a TinyXP as well for those who don't like Win7.

Even a laptop at £200 would be better. Considering mobile phones these days are coming out with 1ghz processors (by the way, you said 1.66mhz above :whistling: ). No matter if the specs are 1.2ghz or 1.6ghz, you still wont be able to watch HD video on youtube etc without it being unwatchable, unless you splash out on an NVidia powered laptop, in which case you still might as well get a laptop. Considering you only get 1gb of RAM with this netbook in question, you might as well throw 250 quid out the window.

Even my iPhone 3GS handles web pages and browsing a hell of a lot better. Netbooks are there for people who think a tiny computer for a cheap (yet really expensive) price is a good thing, its just not.

no 3g

Can anyone recommend a small but reasonably powerful machine then at netbook size to run windows and office apps. possibly photoshop. I have a 14in laptop already, but could do with something at a keen price, sub 12in screen and lightweight. Battery would have to be around 3-4 hours. Any ideas or would the CULV machines fit the bill?

im using win 7 ultimate. tried tiny xp too.

win7 is good. but the slowdown takes its toll at times. particularly when watching youtube and movies.

A netbook is designed to view the net on its own pretty much, not loads of programs running...

Windows 7 runs loads of programs, more than windows xp.

Windows 7 is designed or supposed to be for new pcs, netbooks are effectively old pc specs.

I really think youre asking for trouble using Windows 7 on a netbook.

And a lot of the time its your internet going super slow not the netbook surely.

striker33 and Davidben83 - What is the point of your comments?
I get it - You're smarter than everyone else and your extensive research has brought you to your lame conclusions.

I have owned an NC10 for 16 months and in that time I have taken it abroad with me on 6 occasions (just returned from Egypt yesterday), and I use it most days and even take it to work sometimes.
It is perfect for my needs.
I've previously owned £900+ ultraportables (Sony and Samsung) that were not lightweight enough, over specified for my needs and poorer battery life.
I was so pleased when netbooks came on the scene because they were perfect for me.

I also have a iPod Tough 32GB 3g (OH an iPhone 3GS) and a main, fast PC at home and each has a time and place when it is most appropriate to use.
So get it into your heads that there are quite a few people out there who DON'T want a £400 paving slab of a laptop to play games on and run Photoshop.

It's true that some people do not do enough research into what they want from a portable computing device before they purchase and purchase a netbook instead of a cheap laptop.

Show me the £200 laptop that you are talking about...

Typical comment on netbook thread. Peoples that complain that netbooks are less powerful than full size laptop simply don't understand what a netbook is for.

I completely understand what a netbook is for, but what I'm saying is the majority of them don't work well for what they should be used for. Extremely light web browsing, which like i say, can be handled just as well by any mobile phone these days.

my nc10 is slowly becoming my main work machine best piece of tech i have bought for a long while, also pretty decent with 720p mkv's
#23
My netbook is for use on holiday. The performance is quite adequate. Light weight and small size are assets -I just do not want to be carrying a 15" laptop around on holiday.

I have a PC for use at home.

and the £200 Laptop?
#25
why do they always drop the price of the black ones and not the same model in white?

its the same with the Asus 1001 the white ones are around £20 - £30 more expensive than exactly the same model in black.

Its not just Amazon but noticed this with quite a few suppliers asking more for white models than black for the same machine, must be an excess of black ones available or white are more popular and sell more but is it right to charge more for the same model?
