Surely you mean £30 not £130?

Which? Personally I would go for the ASUS. Sightly better battery life, slightly better processor, both very well built, + no need to faff around with cashback.

the asus is far superior to the NC10.
#7
personally I think all these 10" netbooks running xp are going to be nearer £200 after christmas... probably not the best time to buy.

This has the N280 the NC10 has the 270 and this has a better battery life. Remember that Asus kicked off the whole netbook craze and make very high quality machines.

This has come down in price, but only £50 since August. Post description is misleading.

I can't find the NC10 on currys website at £20 cheaper - it says £269 with £20 cash back - Are you saying it's £229 at currys somewhere .....

Many thanks for any info or link if possible.

This is 219 in staples, but they are down to display stock. Dont think it was online at that price though
#12
personally the samsungs look cack in my opinion and alwasy have, the eee`s where a bit thick but the 1005 series has thinned them down luverly.

i would buy an eeepc over the samsung anyday, alsospare parts and accessories are more availible (eeebay)

i have had my eeepc for over 2 months now, bought from scan @ £258 , not sure what they are now, but good price anyways for a very very good netbook.

Buy these netbook with caution they are pretty slow and under powered. Better of spending bit more and buying a proper laptop if your happy to have a larger screen.

Good deal. They are clearing stocks for the new Windows 7 model.

Netbooks aren't laptops. Two different market segments, albeit with overlap.

If you just want a machine with a bit of luggability but decent power then get a laptop.

If you want extreme portability and don't need the best performance, get a netbook.

I bought one of these for a smidgen under £300 in August from Amazon and have been really pleased with it.

It's a great netbook for the price, but like another poster says, there's got to be a good chance it'll drop further after Christmas.

(As an aside, if anyone's interested, I blogged about my experiences with this very netbook here: Asus netbook review.)
#17
the post is a bit misleading, since it has been around the £280/270 mark when I checked last month-ish.
#18
FYI Amazon is doing the newer model (larger 250gb HDD, windows 7 starter) for an extra twenty of your earth pounds. Worth considering ......

It's cheaper on ebuyer.com (£247.06):

More HDD less power as that is an N270 and the one for sale is a N280, still a good find.
#22
If it were my money i'd go for this one, bigger hard drive, bluetooth and Windows 7 installed, the processor is the N270 rather than the N280 but by all accounts the difference is not noticeable.

good luck to you mate. we trusted in samsung for an american style fridge-freezer and a washing machine. that was less than 2 years ago. the fridge is now rusting and the washing machine has broken down several times. god knows how long the laptops will last.

nah, has a 3 cell battery compared to longer lasting 6 cell in the asus. for the extra fifty quid id go for the asus all day long.

Majority of netbooks struggle to cope with flash based web sites. They are generally rubbish.

That will be the n270 model with slightly less battery life. Confusingly Asus made two different models with the same 1005ha model number.

Nvidia Ion netbooks can play HD Flash video with latest drivers and flash 10.1 pre-release.

January is likely to see dual-core atom netbooks coming in at just under the £400 mark.

Good netbook but I can't stand the gloss screen. The whole point of a netbook is that you take it everywhere with you, which will inevitably mean some outdoor use, but this one comes with a gloss screen so all you can see is the sky. Because of this reason, I bought the lower spec version of this, the 1005HA n270 - This actually comes with a matte screen and is great for viewing outdoors or in brightly lit areas. The colours from the LED screen are awesome. I watched 720p Kung-Fu panda on it and it played smoothly and the vividness put my 6 month old ASUS LCD 22" 1080p monitor to shame! The n270 version was only slightly cheaper then this one at the time (£250 v £280) and comes with no bluetooth, 0.3MP webcam vs 1.3MP and the slightly slower n270 v n280 and a slightly shorter battery life. No bluetooth is a pain but quickly rectified with a nano dongle. Webcam makes no difference. It's a netbook. Using a 1.3MP on a netbook probably isn't a good idea. The processor being slower, the n270 one has a "SUPER PERFORMANCE" mode. I put it in this mode and with prime 95 running, CPU-Z said the n270 was running at 1.680GHz. ie a tiny bit faster than the n280 at 1.660GHz standard. Maybe the n280 has this too but its something to think about. Consider the n270 version if you want a matte screen. But either way, I strongly recommend this. It is slightly thicker in my netbook case than I thought it would be, but thats because the feet at the back protrude a little bit down, but this isn't a problem. BTW, a recent survey which was posted on tomshardware.co.uk said that asus make the most reliable laptops.

Yes. I have a single core with Ion with HDMI. (Compaq 311c)

Quite easily yes. You can't change the hard disk on it though as there's no access panel so you'll be stuck with 160gb.
