There was a similar deal posted a few weeks ago that was about £270 I think, but it was for the lower spec Atom N270 model. The battery was also a lower capacity.
This is the higher spec version of the Asus EEE PC 1005HA. It is retailing for around £299 up to and above £350 elsewhere. Yesterday, the price at Amazon was about £40 higher than it is today, and I've noticed severe price changes on these netbooks throughout the past week. Catch this while you can, it may be back up to £300 tomorrow. I current;y have a 1000H but it is faulty so I am returning it to bennetsonline (DO NOT shop with these people) and I will be ordering this model later today hopefully.
The specs can easily be found on the Amazon site, some things that may be harder to come by are as follows:
*The keyboard has been tweaked so that that right-shift key is in the 'normal' position, unlike on the 1000H where it is placed after the up arrow key.. that has been driving me nuts so it's a well needed change.
*The keyboard has a new chiclet-style set of keys (I think like the macbooks do).. basically the keys are flat with more touchable surface area, unlike the 1000H where the keys are bevelled.
*The battery can apparently last 10 hours with one charge, but realistically you will probably get 6 - 7 hours with intensive use (for eg playing media/using wifi constantly). If you just want to do offline word processing, you'll likely get way more time out of it. I currently get around 5 - 6 hours with my lower-spec 1000H when connected to the internet using MSN/browsing.
*The screen is glossy as opposed to matte. Great for indoor use, giving a crisp bright picture, but not so good for outside use in the sinlight, although you can probably find anti-glare screens to attatch if needed.
*RAM can easily be upgraded to 2GB under warranty. This was something that the 1008HA model seemed to cause problems with as the RAM was not easily upgradable
Right now, I'm unsure whether or not the battery is removable. I remember reading something about this a little while ago. I'm sure someone else can assist me with that one.
These netbooks typically come with Windows XP installed.. It is a suitable OS for most users, offering speed and reliability, with a wide range of supported applications that you can find on the internet. I personally wiped XP off my 1000H as soon as I got it, and replaced it with the RC Windows 7 that is currently free for trial from the Microsoft website. Surprisingly, Windows 7 runs perfectly fine on these netbooks, and looks great too. The only downside is that some applications that you like to use may not be supported, but it's nothing that can't be solved by using an alternative. The essentials like MSN, Firefox, VLC, an anti-virus, webcams etc etc all work fine. The wifi and bluetooth was also working 'out of the box', with no need to hunt down any drivers.
If you do want to install Windows 7 on your netbook, you can do so with a USB flash drive (thumb drive, SD card, Micro SD card etc etc) but make sure you find a guide, as there is a short, easy to follow process involved that makes the flash drive bootable. If you have an external cd/dvd drive that you can plug into the USB port, things are as simple as booting from cd-rom.
This is my first post, so be nice :P Sorry if I talked too much :P
