I own this netbook, and it really is a fantastic netbook! I was downgrading from a laptop, but didn't want something that ground to a halt everytime I did a bit of multi-tasking, and this didn't dissappoint. Am aware it is cheaper elsewhere, but it is rarley in stock.

Note - in the deal it looks like amazon have used the wrong picture, for the 1201HA, but the item is the 1201N

Slow...where you getting this information from.....

Oh, and admin maybe, why is picutre now showing as the wrong netbook....
#3
This had some favourable reviews and looks attractive - I had considered buying it myself until the price was set too high. It was available elsewhere for just under £400. This has been the initial offer price for some while and will have to fall significantly to justify consideration.
#4
£408 for a Netbook??

Not voting either way. It may be a good deal but there's no way i'd pay that for a netbook.
#5
HP Compaq 311c is similar spec, but Atom N270 and smaller HD and costs around £250.

At £400 this is £150 more - but you don't get £150 worth of extra gear, hence COLD!

I don't know how you can call it a similar spec, when this has a dual-core processor (as opposed to a single-core one) and ION graphics, which I'm led to believe is the on-board equivalent of the NVidia 9400M graphics card (which gives it the graphical oomph of a current-gen macbook).

Yes...it's pricey, but it is vastly superior to a N270 netbook and is much more frugal on power than a Core 2 Duo laptop.
#7
It is pricey, but can do things like play Crysis not plugged in for over 3 hours, with no stutter (not running at quite full graphics) but I guess this is a pretty niche market!
#8
AS far as netbooks go, this is probably the best all rounda netbook you can get. If you have an Acer R3610 this is about the same speed (I got my Acer for around £200).

However, there are more powerful 12inch laptops out there for around £400. Most are generally let down by graphics though.

A new generation of Atom processors are coming out. There chipsets are more energy conscious and the processors are slightly faster as well. I say slightly, because next gen Atom processors are only geared towards using less power so will therefore always be at a speed disadvantage to C2D. Nevertheless, I never thought I would say this, but the new Celeron processors seem to be quite good in comparison and may offer a better option in the future. Let's hope AMD get their act together with the Nano/Geo.

Perhaps you should check the spec of the 311c before posting?:x:x

The 311c has an ION graphics. If you trying to justify the price to yourself then sure it's a bargain.

Surely the whole point of a netbook is the reduced cost compared to a full sized laptop? This "deal" offers all of the drawbacks but none of the positives!

Yup, this way I can have a super powerful desktop, plus a reasonably powerful netbook. Anything over £300 for a netbook is too expensive.

The Compaq 311c is better value than this, the 11.6" medio E1211 (or some similar model) are both better value.
#12
This is a dual core atom, around twice as fast at the hp mini and is the best ion netbook out there, granted its expensive for a netbook since you can get dual core culv laptops for around the same price too, but the ion will be three times more powerful then the intel graphics that will come with budget culvs

Also this has been selling for £399 at simplyasus for quite a while now

Dual core does not necessarily mean twice as fast, especially for gaming. I don't think you read my post - the HP mini ALSO has exactly the SAME ION graphics chipset! The *main* difference between the two is HD size and processor cores (I'm sure there are other smaller differences!).

So an extra £150 for dual core CPU is simply not worth it! I'm not saying it's slow, I'm saying it's not good value for money, because if money was no object then we wouldn't all be here!

Care to post up your £250 HP deal, rather than arguing against this particular deal, and leave it to the temperature to determine whether this ASUS is hot or not? I'm not seeing the HP is for less than £300...

The HP Compaq Mini 311c here:

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/637400/hp-311c-11-6-160gb-6hr-256-75-deliv

Expired now, but HP have 10% voucher code plus quidco, making the 311c £260 inc. quidco.

Next time I won't bother with an explanation and just vote, much easier.

I think the -50 degrees of heat has done it's job on this deal more that your protestations could. :)

I didn't know that there was a N270/ION around...totally went under my radar and it is still a good deal at £280. :thumbsup:
#17
not £280, £270 without quidco and £260 with quidco.

Got mine for £250 with built in WWAN! Bargain!

Being an owner of mini 311 i think i know it has Ion, but dual core > single core, some dual core might not be able to match the raw speed of a higher clock single core, but it is much better overall and you will notice an improvement in speed of the general running of the computer, higher clock speed doesnt always mean faster, i have a q6600 in my gaming rig, runs at 2.4 ghz standard, i oc'ed it long time ago to 3.6ghz didnt notice any difference at all in gaming or general use, obviously for gaming the gfx card is the main thing but you still need a good cpu, fact of the matter is the dual core atom is a much better processor then the single core, the n270 is the bottleneck in the mini 311, whereas the 1201n has received mostly praises from reviews and the dual core makes a noticeable difference in performance from what i have read.

However I do agree with you that £400 for a netbook is ludricous, i also paid £250 for my 311 and i would never pay over £250 for a netbook either, at £400 i would rather buy a culv laptop.

One of which is that the HP has the LE version of ION...


It's actually a standard ION and it can be unlocked to full ion, the only reason why its LE is because of machines that are shipped with windows xp, so no direct x 10 in xp.

So bottom line, like I said in my first post an extra £150ish more than whats currently available on the market is simply not value for money.

Perhaps if it came down in price I'd be interested.

Just to let you know a newer version with USB 3.0 ports, NVidia Optimus and ION2 will be released late August for £429.99. 1215n
