Hey guys, anyone know if this is as good as the NC10. My old man brought a Medion and then took it back pretty quick when he saw my NC10. Now he wants one, but there aren't any good deals around at the mo, so I wondered if this would do him. He was particulary struck on the metal hinges rather than plastic. Any comments on the build quality?

Cheers all

I could never justify spending £299.99 on a netbook. Madness. But considering its price elsewhere I suppose this qualifies as hot for anyone stupid enough to buy it.

The NC10 is a complete rip off, it is no different to any other netbook except for the battery.


I was quite pleased with mine. Got it for £250 and upgraded the RAM to 2gb, runs like a dream.

You're a bit out on a limb there. Almost every group test and serious analysis has put the NC10 in top place in comparison with other 1st/2nd generation net-books.:?

Rubbish track pad though - can't believe that on that alone it a) got so universally popular or b) wasn't killed dead by the NC110 (which fixes the trackpad per PC-pro). I can see both points - don't think I'd pay £300 for a netbook, but then looking back, £237.50 for my beloved netbook seems a lot. And I am maybe about to spend another £100 on an SSD for it!

hey bud...NC10 had its time, its all over now...Its now officially discontinued by Samsung replacing it with N110 with a rip off price tag...
This is the no.1 selling laptop now on amazon.com . check the reviews out there..if you are in doubt.....non compareable wiht this...NC10...I was considering Nc10 and done lot of research, finally tied bet N110 and this one...but unable to justify the extra £50 for N110.
This is a brand new model from well respected Asus, who are the pioneers of netbook market
N280 processor - Draft N Wireless, Longest battery pack ever for netbook /laptop. New improved 92% full size keyboard.

NC110 is now 329.99 I think at DGSi shops.

Are you joking mate..rubbish keypad..in what sense...compared to Nc10 this track pad is way ahead...the biggest flaw with Nc10 was its useless trackpad..and you guys are living in diff planet i suppose...Nc 10 is now declared EOL.

Asus Eee PC 1005HA Review Roundup
As of now, the Asus Eee PC 1005HA is the chart topper, released in July 09. Reviews indicate that this netbook is the most well rounded Eee PC so far. Cnet.com and HotHardware.com both chosen this netbook to be one of their Editor’s Choice, while the reviewers from Laptop Magazine and Liliputing commented that this netbook is one of the top netbook that’s worth checking out. Here are the summary of good and bad on the Eee PC 1005HA:

http://hothardware.com/Articles/Asus-Eee-PC-1005HA-Review/?page=7

Sleek and attractive “Seashell” design. Multiple colors available, including white, black, blue, and pink.
Ergonomically designed keyboard which is comfortable to type on.
Decent performance with Atom N280 processor.
Great battery life which supports more than 8 hours of usage.
Battery and RAM is easily accessible unlike the Eee PC 1008HA.
Useful software bundle such as the Data Sync that lets you synchronize files across multiple computers, EzMessenger that lets you send messages to other computer users on your network, Eee Docking that lets you access a handful of Asus apps when you scroll your mouse over the top of the screen, Font Resizer, Parental Control, and more.
Reasonable price.
#16
decent price. 10 hour battery life is good in my book :thumbsup:
#18
Just want to note this is the more expensive of the two 1005HA models floating about.

Main differences:
Atom N280
Bluetooth
Draft-N wireless
Gloss screen

It was listed at £309.99 on Amazon before so you're only saving 3% on the price.

Only voting hot because it's the best value laptop you can currently buy, and better than the aging and less-stylish NC10.

£309 pricing was about 3 weeks ago it lasted only a couple of days..since then th price gone back up to £349...coz I was watching it on a regular price, but from yesterday they started offering this pice...

I think the N280 version comes with a slipcase too (whereas the N270 doesn't), although it's not listed on the Amazon page.

See Skyboat's reply, and my reply and link above. There are 2 versions of the 1005HA - the "N270" model and the "N280" model, which is generally more expdensive. The N280 refers to a slightly better processor, but it's a tiny difference; there are other differences too (better camera, bluetooth, glossy screen, bigger battery, notebook sleeve, potentially-faster-wireless-but-probably-not-all-that-noticeable-in-practise).

I wouldn't kick this or an NC110 out of bed for eating biscuits.

Now that seems a really good deal. Is this the same notebook as the Amazon deal? Anyone used this company before?

EDIT: just read the above post and link... won't be ordering from Bitesize!!!

Question - can these handle 10MP+ size images from my DSLR? My little Fujitsu-Siemens Lifebook can't.
#31
great price! I have an 1000HE which I bought a month ago for £290... this one for £300 is a very good deal

Whilst not wanting to drag attention away from this great deal with Amazon, who are a very reputable company. I would advise serious caution regarding BIteSizeDeals who are not. Please read this and then decide if you want to gamble the £40 saved by going with BiteSize Deals.

[COLOR="Red"]Court Halts U.S. Internet Seller Deceptively Posing as U.K. Home Electronics Site

In the wake of a Federal Trade Commission complaint against a company that deceptively sold electronics to hundreds of British consumers, the company has agreed to stop its allegedly illegal tactics until the case is decided in federal court.

Using the Web site names bestpricedbrands and bitesizedeals the California company tricked consumers into believing that they were buying from a company operating in the United Kingdom and were protected by manufacturer warranties that were valid there, according to the FTC complaint. When consumers received the cameras, video games, and other electronic goods, they discovered they had been charged unexpected import duties, were left with invalid warranties, and would be charged draconian cancellation and refund fees if they attempted to send the merchandise back, the complaint stated.

This is the first case the FTC has brought against a U.S. company exclusively doing business abroad. The U.S. SAFE WEB Act of 2006 gave the FTC the authority to sue U.S. companies deceiving foreign consumers, and was part of a strategy to prevent the United States from becoming a haven for fraud.

The Pasadena, California-based defendants charged in the case are Balls of Kryptonite, doing business as Best Priced Brands and Bite Size Deals, and its owner, Jaivin Karnani. Due in part to the defendants’ deceptive use of Web sites ending in “.uk”, the complaint alleges that consumers in the United Kingdom were duped into purchasing goods that carried no manufacturer warranties, were misled about their rights to return or exchange goods under U.K. regulations, were denied the option of cancelling orders, and were sent goods that were different from those depicted on the defendants’ Web sites – and in some cases were unusable.

The FTC also charged the defendants with deceiving consumers about their participation
in a program in which U.S. companies assure customers in the European Union that they secure the customers’ personal information, as required by European law. Known as the EU/U.S. Safe Harbor program, it is administered by U.S. Department of Commerce. The complaint alleges that although the defendants claimed to participate in the EU/U.S. Safe Harbor program, they did not.

European consumers who want to know whether a U.S. company believes it is complying with European law by participating in the Safe Harbor program can go to see if the company has self-certified.

The FTC was assisted in its investigation by the U.K. Office of Fair Trading, one of the FTC’s principal international law enforcement partners. Many consumers in the United Kingdom registered complaints with the FTC by using the Web site econsumer Established by consumer protection agencies from 25 countries, this Web site collects consumers’ complaints about problems in other countries, and facilitates international enforcement cooperation by making the complaints available to international consumer protection agencies through the FTC’s Consumer Sentinel Network.

The Commission vote authorizing the complaint was 4-0. The complaint was filed with
the request for a temporary restraining order on July 20, 2009, in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.

On July 31, 2009, the court entered a temporary restraining order in which the defendants agreed to halt their deceptive representations and provide an accounting of their assets.

NOTE: The Commission files a complaint when it has “reason to believe” that the law has been or is being violated, and it appears to the Commission that a proceeding is in the public interest. The complaint is not a finding or ruling that the defendant or respondent has actually violated the law. The stipulated final order is for settlement purposes only and does not constitute an admission by the defendants of a law violation.

The Federal Trade Commission works for consumers to prevent fraudulent, deceptive, and unfair business practices and to provide information to help spot, stop, and avoid them. To file a complaint in English or Spanish, visit the FTC’s online Complaint Assistant or call 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357). The FTC enters complaints into Consumer Sentinel, a secure, online database available to more than 1,500 civil and criminal law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and abroad. The FTC’s Web site provides free information on a variety of consumer topics.

zen gell, can I suggest that you read my post? I was replying to a post saying how good the keyboard was on the NC10! I think you need to wind your neck in. If you took a minute, you would see that I said the NC110 fixes the trackpad issue (obviously from the NC10, not a different manufacturer machine)!

Rep to the poster who warned about the other site.

I nearly bought a Brown Acer One with 3g and the larger memory from Expansis for £196 delivered. Looks like they have now sold them all and have put the price up £40 but they still have the Pink one for £189. They have a blue one for a bit extra.

After spotting the reduction on this Asus 1005HA last weekend I ordered one which arrived yesterday. Although not listed in Amazon's spec you do get the little case for it.
All great so far. The battery life is tremendous.
I actually decided to use "JoikuSpot" on my Nokia N95 as a hotspot for the Asus to pick up 3G. For those of you who dont know this little program, you load it on your phone and start it. It connects to your phone's internet connection then broadcasts it from your phone just like your wireless router. It works a treat and lets me connect to the internet anywhere there is a Vodafone (Asda) signal. It is GPRS but I believe that has better coverage and is fast enough for most mobile uses such as surfing.
The 3G Acer One's spec says it will also run GPRS so I presume you may be able to use your ordinary phone sim card to get it on the net.
