#3

Worth spending the extra £60 for the 1008ha model in my opinion...

The 1008ha is lighter, thinner & looks sleeker - which should be one of the main reasons in getting a netbook . I dont think the 1005ha model is a better choice despite the extra USB slot & removable battery.

Actually, I'd say it's worth spending about £40 less for the 1005HA N280. It is only .5 pounds heavier, slightly larger, but with a better battery. I'd rather have an extra 2+ hours of battery life per charge than a minor weight/size difference, especially for less money.

Actually i,d say go for this version of the 1005HA, you get the matt screen, no bluetooth and 0.3megapixel camera, slightly smaller battery and pay £260. The N280 version of the 1005HA has gloss screen, 1.3m camera, bluetooth, marginally better battery and £300. I got mine from the USA for $320, apx £200.

The N280 version is £295.. so £35 more/ £40 max.. For that you get the things you mentioned and the battery is more than just marginally better.. it's rated at 10 hours, but realistically you'd be getting about 8.. which is considerably more than the lower spec. Also, the gloss screen gives a better picture. Only reason you'd benefit from a matt screen really is if you were using it outdoors, but believe me, no screen will look good in sunlight anyway. The processor is also SLIGHTLY faster too. Well worth the extra £35 imo. I was getting about 5-6 hours of battery per charge with my 1000h/.

The number one reason for getting a netbook should be portability, so the weight & size should be the top features you're looking for.

whos going to spend 8-10 hours on a netbook anyway? Its just my opinion though, I had to decide between them for the longest time.

The 1008ha does look alot nicer when comparing them in person. Every port is hidden, the screen folds alot neatly and it doesnt have an annoying light right at the front (which is really bright in the night!)

6 hours battery life is plenty for any netbook...

Hmmm.. both of these netbooks are of similar size and weight, but neither are the lightest on the market. If weight/size is someone's priority when buying a netbook, they should really go for a model that is actually one of the lightest and smallest around. People who buy these models are generally doing so for their functionality and features.. of which the battery in the 1005HA N280 is probably the best on the market, whilst still being pretty much the same as the 1008HA in terms of features. There are prettier, smaller, lighter netbooks available though, for those who need it.

6 hours charge may sound like plenty of time, but I found that it goes quick. People have been using laptops on the go for years, but have always been hindered by the need to have to recharge the battery after about 3 hours of use.. why not embrace the fact that these days that problem is being fixed with the likes of these batteries that can allow a person to use a netbook on the move all day without worry that the battery is gonna die?

It's just a no brainer for me.. for less money!

The difference in battery performance between the N270 and N280 1005HA models probably no more than an hour, 48wh compared with 63wh.

I really wish people wouldn't chime in with their guess work when advising people on what to buy with things like this.

Where the Eee PC 1005HA separates itself from other Eee PCs and most other netbooks on the market is in its endurance. Rather than the 2900 mAh lithium polymer battery found on the 1008HA, the 1005HA comes with a 5900 mAh one. On the LAPTOP Battery Test, which assesses endurance by surfing the Web until the battery dies, this netbook lasted 8 hours and 57 minutes, which is more than three hours longer than the six-cell netbook average (5:40), though just a half an hour shy of the record holder, the Toshiba mini NB205 (9:24).


*Edit. I do realise that the review is comparing the 1005HA to the 1008HA, but they appear to have the same differences battery-wise. I'm trying to find some more detailed specs.

Thanks. The white one is £249.97 at Amazon which is a great deal. If I could find a 6 cell NC10 for that price I would be very tempted....as I can't this seems to be the best deal right now.

The NC10 came in after the EEE PC 1000HE on CNET.apparently the trackpad is really annoying to use.

This is now £249.92

Hi, I just got back from ASDA Walmart in Manchester and there was an orange mobile broadband stand with 2 netbooks and a laptop on display. They had an EEE PC (not enitrely sure of spec but it was the 8gb SSD one) for just £4.89 a month. For that you only get 500mb limit but for browsing on the train like I would use it for it aint to bad is it? And for proper browsing/downloading I could use my home wifi and college etc.

And I think its an 18 month contract, =£88.02. That seems far to good to be true, what is the catch. I googled and you do have to be an existing orange customer, but simply slapping in a free orange sim card in your mobile as proof should be enough proof right?

Is this a good deal? Or is there some massive catch like if you go over the 500mb limit they fine you a load of money. Or do they take the WIFI capability out of the netbook so you cant use WIFI and are forced to use the dongle?

Anyway guys just though Id let you know, im gonna post this post on several netbook topics just to spread the word and open debate on whether its any good and should i do it. :)

EDIT:Actually I think it was probably just the dongle that was free, not sure though as they did write "FREE" on the paper card that list the features of the Eee PC underneath. Anyone clarify this?

What are the lighter netbooks?
