EDIT: Mine's just arrived and it's *WHITE*. See post #22
EDIT#2: Cashback tracked so final price is £168.34
I think you'll find that this is a pretty keen price for a BRAND NEW N450 *Pine Trail* netbook (from the company that first introduced Netbooks), even without a 7% cashback bonus. Pine Trail offers between 15% - 20% energy efficiency improvement on the earlier N270 Atom, so it should last a bit longer on the battery.
Features include finger print resistant carbon fibre shell (a change from the glossy finish you usually get), and a matt-screen display which you can actually view outdoors (allegedly). Staples are offering free next day delivery on this item (I presume that's next working day).
Cashback is offered through both Quidco and Topcashback, but Quidco specify that 7% is for business purchases whilst Topcashback don't say either way (they do say that the 7% is on the price EX VAT and delivery). That should bring it down to around £168 if it tracks properly!
PLEASE NOTE: To get the price stated, you'll need to de-select the "Ordercare" option when you get to the checkout. I tried the promo code for a DAB radio and it wasn't recognised.
If the link don't work, go to the Staples UK website and search for "Asus netbook" and select the £152 EX VAT unit.
