This is probably a daft question, but given that £300 is into Core i3 territory, what makes this a more attractive proposition than a full sized 15.6inch i3 laptop (other than the better battery life/mobility from the smaller form factor)?
#3
I guess its got the advantages of a netbook with many of the features of a laptop, very portable but not too underpowered or using cut down o/s

You hit the nail on the head, it's mobility and power consumotion

I have one of these, I think the battery must be larger though as it lasts a lot longer between charges. I'm having to replace mine after 16 months of use because of the build quality. Bits keep falling off it and this week the housing for the screen split apart making it very hard to use indeed! A shame really as they're not bad specs for the money. Portability is very important for me and the size of this laptop is excellent, if only it could all stay togther :)

The Hannspree one yesterday was probably a better deal, but OOS now. Despite the brand, you save £100
#7
These culv laptops are brilliant my acer 3810 runs everything no problem and works fine with my emulators also.

Battery life is far more important to me than a super fast cpu i will never actually need running at full speed.

I'm definitely not delicate with laptops, they do get some abuse. Never seen one come apart like this though!
#10
Don't know whether to get this or keep waiting for the Samsung Q330 to drop its price again..
#11
This is a sweet little laptop, a true perfect blend of laptop and netbook. You get the advantages of both laptop and netbook at a reasonable price.
Had one of these and sold it on... regretting it ever since! :(

Good price, heat added.

(Remember that it is a discontinued product though)
#13
Unsure to get this now or wait till closer to uni.
#14
Quick question. How much does this weigh. Save on laptops says 1.75 kg but on the last forum where this was discussed someone said 1.5 kg. I need a light portable laptop, good battery life, good performance (web surfing, watching video, streaming, office work) with a decent build quality.
#15
Are the codes for this place all item specific? I'm tempted - very tempted - by this but if there are other codes I might see how the wallet's fixed and stretch to something else.

Cheers... Hot deal by the way!
#16
Does anyone know what the battery capacity (in hours) is in this machine for general use?
#17
Thanks op. Heat added and purchase made.
#18
I have this laptop (had it for just under a year). Used for office work, etc.

Can confirm the battery life is amazing on this laptop, outruns my friends MSI netbook. Easily does 6 hours + on a full charge (browsing, excel, internet radio, etc.).

Hot!

Got a silver SU2300 Damn fine machine. Light. Excellent battery life (~7 hrs). H/W accelerated 1080p. HDMI out. No pointless optical drive thereby saving space. If only it had a "nipple" like a Stinkpad I would buy 10 ! :p Mrs loves hers and she doesn't care about nipples! :|

Got one, using it now, it's ok I guess.

Screen is crap for angles although bright, keyboard flex is like a trampoline, trackpad is like wtf, finish is poo apart from the top, SD card sticks out that little bit too much.

Battery is insanely good, 3G module is great, weight is great, build is otherwise ok.

I'm still happier than not, but mainly because my previous best machine was a netbook which I struggled on mostly for WORK for about a year (I procrastinate about buying these things, eh). I'm still *definitely* on the lookout for something better.

I have been travelling a lot though. The weight is ok but the size width wise is not much smaller than a 15" anyway, so don't be fooled into thinking these are ultra compact.

Does ok with 720p but not a racy machine, as you'd expect.

I paid 330 I think? This is a GOOD price for this machine, but you gets what you gets, as per on this site. If you need a low spec portable right now you can do worse I guess.

Have been looking at the HP Pavillion DM1 3100;
http://www.amazon.co.uk/DM1-3100-Notebook-Processor-Windows-Premium/dp/tech-data/B004UFOTGC/ref=de_a_smtd

I'm not really too fussy about the difference in form factor, but in terms of processing power and also graphical capability (in terms of playing a high def movie or some low level gaming), which of these is better?
#24
That HP one has GigaBit LAN also. PassMark rates the CPU at 734 compared to the Asus at 977 so possibly a little less belt there.

I'm still hanging around waiting to get something similar. Was tempted by the Hannspree deal earlier this week but still neshed out of that one with it still in my basket, just like that Acer Ferrari One, the CPW netbooks etc etc :|

my SD cards dont stick out the slot, i like to track pad, i find the screen be quite bright and viewing angles totally fine, the screen does bend when you lift it but thats cause its soo thin, the keyboard is nice to type on... i think the finish is nice considerign the price of it aswell, were not talking aluminium MBP obvcourse

i dont really see how it could be much more compact... yet again this isnt a £1000+ MBA or Sony Z series

if you need and ultraportable laptop at this price point i dont think you can really do any better (_;)
#26
X) Great, very tempted! I missed it a few weeks ago and regretted it. However, still very much undecided. I'm also impressed by a Samsung 330 with i3 processor and DVD, similar weight and battery life; currently at £450. Also, some Acer TimelineX machines...
If anyone could comment or compare, would be much appreciated. Also, can I expect any drop in price on Samsung soon?
1 Like #27
I'm also waiting on the timelineX or Samsung q330 to drop back down to 400 and have been waiting for about 3 months now.
#28
i got one of these last time for 320 .... what a bargain for that price and the performance and ease of use u can not go wrong . i have had it 6 weeks now and love it . marks easily as a bit shiny but apart from that you cant buy better for that price or even near that price.
#29
Does anyone have any tips for a good value PAYG data SIM to use in one of these? Got a colleague of mine interested as I just came back from a meeting where I used the slightly lower-spec silver version of this for 8 hours and still had about 30% battery left at the end of the day! It's by no means a powerful laptop, but it does office multitasking just fine and will play 1080p video... and the main thing is that for battery life it's hard to beat.
#30
My only concern about this is that the processor seems a little slow - how would it compare with the TimelineX 3820TZ on same site (Intel® Pentium® P6100 Dual Core (2.0 GHz, 3MB Cache)). Would there be a noticable difference for multitasking, graphically intense web pages etc?
#31
HI There
AMAZING service from save on laptops, laptop is already with me, its actually faster than i dared hope for, the speakers are better than i would have given a laptop of this size credit for
its a bargain for under £300. VERY HAPPY

Just to ask what PHILOMENE asked above - it seems locked to O2 for the Sim, and I fancy the Tesco deal, i know tesco piggyback off of O2 so would the sim work and what would i need to do to make it work!? Thanks loads

Thought would let you now my feedback - I bought one of these on Wed, delivered yesterday - I have to say really impressed, I already have an Asus 1005p Netbook and although been happy with it, always wanted something with embedded 3G, couldn't resist this deal.

With regard to 3G/O2, it does come pre loaded with O2 3G software - you need to uninstall this, reboot and then download install the Asus Connection Manager Utility & Drivers from the Asus site. (Version V2.00_V2.0.3.825 & then Version V2.0.3.828 After doing this I rebooted again and inserted my Three UK SIM card into the side slot.

I turned it on & got this prompt:

Then ran Asus Connection Manager Software and was up and running :-)

All sorted in 10 mins or so :-)

OFFER CODE ENDS SUNDAY 12TH JUNE- almost sold out!
#35
Missed out on this gutted... Anywhere else selling these?
#36
I too ordered this on Sunday through PayPal only to find the ammount refunded to my account on Monday morning -something to do with an unconfirmed address.
Rang them up but they wouldn't honour £299 price.
Yeah so I'm gutted too.
Where do the discount codes appear for these offers?
Anywhere else I can get it near to this price?
Thanks
#37
How often does it drop down to this price as its around £370 now and seems a better laptop for the money than this:
