Cheapest I have seen if the ASDA one is no longer available (not checked). Hot regardless, this ones more compact and includes XP
#2
I thiink they've accidentally used the wrong image as the main picture on their site and this is probably the 7" model...

5% quidco too!

Not voting, but please bear in mind that this includes the much older Celeron processor. Quite a bit slower than the Atom chip most other netbooks in this class now pack. Remember that Asus began using the Celeron before the Atom was released, and for some god forsaken reason used it in another model much later in the product line.

Therefore, old stock, of the anomalous model. Either way, take your pick and google around for benchmarks.

The 7" screens are a good bit smaller than the 8.9" screens in everyday use and the quality is poorer. Ive not voted but man newer netbooks are on the way and plenty of resellers are clearing there inventorys.
#6
As a 701 owner I would seriously recommend people buy the 901 and upwards, or if not buy a cheap small mouse because you'll be doing a lot of horizontal scrolling as no webpage fits.
#7
I would not bother with a 7" screen now. 9" is the minimum for them to be usable, and preferably 10" as 7" is just toy sized and very frustrating to use.

They wanted to be first to market with the 9" screens, and didn't want to rely on Intel's delivery schedule. The Celeron isn't that much slower than the Atom, and neither does it use that much more energy because of the power-hungry chipset the Atom is burdened with.

inventorys.

Personally I would never go for a Celeron, thats the part where I stop, they are DEAD SLOW, good luck (but I wont vote;-))

[SIZE="2"]Has anyone else noticed that, at the rate this genre is developing, all of these netbook screens will soon be the same size as the laptop screens that were considered too small to be useful just a few years ago?:roll::-D:w00t::roll:[/SIZE]

no disrespect to the OP but I dont understand why this is voted hot with 117 degrees. As mentioned the 701 is one of the first models that Asus released and as mentioned has the old chip and 7 inch screen. Im also sure that I read that the resolution on the 7" screen is not all that good for Windows xp as many of the dialogue boxes dont fit on the screen as the resolution is too small (800x480 pixels vs 1024x600 for 9" screen) most websites are optimizedfor 1024x768. Considering that I saw a Acer at PC world for £175 Id personally spend a bit more to get the better processor and 9" screen and more RAM. If you dont care about it its okay deal as I dont think its available from many other places now as most retailers stock only the later asus eee netbooks

[FONT="Verdana"]Its down to people's budgets I suppose at the end of the day - I have an older netbook with a 7" screen (ASUS EEE PC 701 4G/Surf) and its running quite well for my needs (just rebuilt it yesterday with an install of Windows XP Home Edition updated with SP3 via nLite).

Even though it has a smaller screen you can use software utilities over on the EEE Users website to change the internal screen resolutions (along with the DPI) but also connect it to an external monitor for better resolutions if your using it for a long time. You do adapt to using the keyboard and trackpad, just takes a bit of time! ;-)

[FONT="Verdana"]Here's links to other threads (previous submitted deals) for this netbook from Carphone Warehouse - thought it prudent to include them so you can look at the comments left by other members, which are a lot more expanded upon than this one is just now.

Good point regarding the horizontal scrolling. You can't see the whole webpage on such a small screen.

I have both the 10" Advent 4211 and the Asus Eee PC 701 and I agree to a certain extent with this post.

I would add, let's not lose sight of what a netbook is. They are not intended to replace a laptop or PC. They were designed for MOBILE use, and some sacrifices have to be made to achieve that aim.

I use my Advent most times but if I am extremely limited for space (backpack or poacher's pocket in my overcoat) I will slip the Asus in.

Not quite right there. I have two of these and an MSI Wind. These have the 900MHz Celeron inside (the 2GB Surf versions had an 800MHz Celeron), which is underclocked to 630MHz to improve battery life and keep the heat down, since none of the bundled apps really needs any more power. At this speed the 1.6GHz Atom pips it. Flash the bios and switch on the full 900MHz and it beats the Atom. Heat never seemed to be a problem for me and shouldn't be unless you are stressing the cpu at 100% for hours on end.

So struggle, then.

This was done to death on the eeepc forums when the 901 came out. People were gutted when tests (the usual benchmarks and real world application testing) showed that for most applications its predecessor, the 900, was actually faster. The Atom comes into its own with applications that take advantage of HT, and of course, power consumption is obviously better. There isn't a huge amount in it, either way. It was just that people saw 1.6 > 0.9 GHz and expected correspondingly better performance.

Go have a read of myriad forum posts, blogs written or whatever source you care to google. It's all out there.

I have had one of these (4Gb ) for about a year. Great gadget.
When you think of the screen size and button size on a mobile phone why would
you complain about this ?
It's all about price,size,weight and function .

PS Can you get a white one from CPW ?

[FONT="Verdana"]Unfortunately its only the black one I've seen advertised on their website and also instore - you could try checking out eBay UK but I have a feeling there won't be much selection there.
