This is the Asus Eee PC (Black) 2g version for £166.26 delivered. It's described as "open box pristine".

After 4% Quidco, comes to £159.61 delivered which is a great price.

I'm personally looking for the 4g, but this might be useful for some.

Good price, but lacks the webcam that the 4G model has.

Also, if you click on the warranty tab it says 1 months parts 0 months labour, presumably because it is classed as 2nd hand.

Good spot that's a bad warranty on a pc.
#5
but you can buy the warranty for £19.99?
#6
It's a good price for some... seeing as though most suppliers are selling the 4g for around £250. Put in a 4gb SDHC card in to this, along with an 8gb USB pen drive, and you've got potentially 14gb flash memory. If you're desperate for a webcam, buy one for less than a tenner (ASDA has a small one, good quality for around £6). Still will be under £200 total...

But the primary reason for buying an eee is because it's small, light and cheap. carrying around a full sized webcam and a USB stick rather negates a lot of the reason for getting one.

This 2G has no webcam, non-upgradable memory, 1 month warrenty and with the 2GB main drive I'm not sure how well it would play with windows XP. Still if all that's acceptible to you this looks like a cracking deal.

If you are flying soon, you can get the 4GB version for £212.76 from Dixons Tax Free at the airport.

They were doing the same deal for £187 until last month. :?

Falling in price as the new one is about to be released.

I think the 8g version will be around £320-£350.

The new Eee PC 900 (8.9 inch screen, 12g SSD) won't be out till later in the summer... not sure of price though.
#11
You can also find the white model on the site for the same price. Ordered and voted hot.

This is the Asus Eee PC. It is an ultra portable computer... slightly larger than a DVD case. The hard drive is a solid state drive, so yes, it is only 2gb.
#14
ASUS Eee PC are very nice machines but i would recommend installing a different Linux OS as the default is very poor compared to various other Linux distros for the Eee PC
#15
A notebook and a laptop are the same thing. I think notebook is mostly the american name.

Either way, the EEE is neither of them. Its a sub-notebook. Which means its a tiny laptop/notebook small enough to throw in your handbag or carry around like a book.
#16
Don't forget there's a 9" coming out...

Manufacturer's are moving away from calling them "laptops" and are now steering towards the word "notebook".

The reason for this is that a "laptop" tends to overheat if you actually use it on your lap and most instruction manuals tell you not to use them on a soft surface (Such as a lap!).

Yes, 2GB is all it has as the OS has a small footprint. Most people are used to Windows which tends to eat disk space. If you want more storage (For documents or whatever) then you can always use an SD card.

£166 is a better price than the RRP of £200, but IMO you get better value for money with the 4GB (£220 RRP) Although they are difficult to find in stock. some places are charging £260-£300 for the 4GB.

The new eee 900 (8.9" screen, 1GB ram, 8-12 GB SSD) is due to be released in Europe April-June for €400 ~ £300. Might be worth the wait, as the 7" screen is quite small.

4G version for £211 here: http://www.eclipsecomputers.com/product.aspx?code=NBA-EPC701WH

Factor in the webcam, the extra memory (as well as it being easier to upgrade the RAM), and the fact that this has full warranty. Much better deal IMO.

Wow, that's the best price I've seen!

I can almost guarantee Eclipse Computers do not have the 4g in stock, despite what their site says.

You're paying a lot extra for a slightly bigger screen. The RAM can easily be upped to 1-2gig, and a small USB stick would make the disk space similar. By the time this comes out I bet the 4G will be sub £200.

If it didn't last a reasonable amount of time (> 1 year) you'd have a legal right to get it repaired/replaced - but you might have to sue them to get it.

It's got Linux on it. I don't think it'll be as fast if you installed XP on it.

+But it also has a proper SDHC card reader, some people are reporting their SDHC cards do not work with their current eee 701 (which doesn't officially support SDHC).
+The internal SSD is also apparently faster than SDHC cards. So upgrading by SDHC is not really the same.
+Larger touch pad + buttons.
+Larger and higher resolution screen

But!
-less battery life, due to larger screen
-overall larger unit

But i do agree, £300 (+vat?) is not as good value for money, so i hope they cut the price before it's released.

The one month warranty doesn't mean a thing compared with the sale of goods act. It must be fit for purpose and as it is being described 'as new' then it would be reasonable to expect it to last as long as a 'new' model. The dealer therefore has to honour this and if it fails within a reasonable period of time they must either replace it or offer a refund.
#30
Sorry to go slightly off topic, but as I understand it, (and correct me if I'm wrong) the EEE has a problem displaying a lot of websites in their correct resolution. In short the screen isn't wide enough to fit the whole webpage in so lots of sideways scrolling. Will the 9inch version fix that?

Depends on the website your visiting.

Generally they should be around 1024x768. The resolution on the new eee pc is 1024x600. 1024 being the horizontal resolution. So this should be fine.
#33
PS - It is speculated that the new Eee PC will be running XP. Even though the video confirms this. It looks like that pc is from the far-east. They have XP over there on the older models already.
banned#34
the 9" version will have a cut down version of XP, it looks pretty hawt
#35
surely the point of the eee was that by running on linux, it would be substatialy cheaper than running an MS OS. Imho, I wouldnt buy one that was running XP, it is far too resource hungry - if it runs XP and at a similar price, there is little to differentiate the eee from other ultra mobiles. I think the price of the new model is too expensive. Its getting into the sole laptop range rather than the existing 2nd portable machine to a primary work or home based pc

Rumors are that they will come in two flavours OS-wise.

Yes, it will be available with XP as well as with Linux. The ironic thing is that Microsoft has hitherto been desperate to get us off XP in order to keep us on its upgrade treadmill, with threats of its imminent demise. Seeing such a device appear with Linux pre-installed was groudbreaking and must have caused panic at MS - hence it agreeing to supply an XP-only option officially again. (The Eee would not be capable of running the bloatware that is Vista.) So, although I believe the XP version will be more expensive (I don't think prices are available yet), you can bet the difference won't be much.

I'm sure MS would want it to be zero, but the company is running scared of the EU at the moment (having just been fined >£1bn, with other investigations ongoing) and giving away Windows would surely raise more questions about anti-competitive practices.
#39
They will also release the current version with XP in Europe at the same time, the new model isn't a replacement.

Having trawled the south east of England for an EEE PC a few weeks ago, I went up north to stay with my sister and Fenwicks in Newcastle had several EEE PCs 4gb in their Micro Anvika concession in instore for £219. Grabbed one quick for my son's 18th birthday. Son loves it.
