Hot price :thumbsup: however would like confirmation, OS is in fact XP ?
#2
Shows XP in the web page photo and in the spec - what kind of confirmation were you seeking?
#3
Yeah. says XP Home in the description next to it to.

However, if it's only a 7" screen, the keyboard looks like it must be minute? Surely no man could use that comfortably?

HOTTTTT!

Can somebody please explain the appeal with this eee things? I don't get it, at all. (Obviously size comes into play, but anything else?)
#13
Never really got the idea behind these. They are obviously compact, but so is 10" and you can get a LOT more stuff on a 10" laptop. This has less space than my USB flash drive which is poor. The RAM is poor and the processor is shockingly bad. I suppose if you are on a hunt for a laptop that is super tiny on size AND function and you're on a budget then this is okay for you. I'd rather spend an extra £100 and get a laptop that's got a 160GB+ HDD, proper processor, over 2GB RAM, a DVD drive and a proper keyboard! Just my opinion.

So you can get all that for £255 can you ? Care to say where ?
If you don't get the appeal of a very small lightweight netbook then , obviously, it's not
for you .
For your info, the ram and processor are fine on this , at least they are on my linux version.
For those who travel they are brilliant .
#17
Very Very tempted by one of these, think I shall have to pop in to CPW and pick one up.

Hot deal :)

£230. Obviously an unusually abnormally low price. 13.3" screen enough.

I do want a small laptop. 13.3" is plenty small enough. I still want functionality too. A celeron processor of that speed is pretty poor by today's standards, and yesterday's and last year's and last decade's.

Agree that £399 can buy you the 13.3" dell 1318.
Or that £260 can buy you an XP Acer 150

but I think you miss the point

1. This is 901kg. not 1.2kg, or 1.97kg, etc. For a full XP machine this light you need to get the expensive OQO - which, by the way, is much heavier once you take the necessary accessories (and power supply).

2. Its so cheap that hackers like it to muck around with various hardware hacks, including GPS, 3G and installing different operating systems.

3. The SSD does make it more resiliant to knocks. And more fun (and dangerous) to try and upgrade :)

4. The 900Mhz celeron is actually not that bad, and not the limiting factor. Its faster then the sealy chips and also the slow atoms (e.g. the new z535 in the dell mini 12). It is also faster then the via chip in the HP 2133. It is beaten only really by the N270.

5. Its highly supported on the internet.

At the end of this day its a fun, full internet access laptop, with a decent keyboard, that you can sling in your backpack. I'd rather have it then the nokia N810 or other non-windows browser.

It's "back ordered" which prob means "not gonna happen". I still ordered one in hope of it going through.

Very cheap, but for £30 more you can get the Linux version with 1GB RAM, and 8.9" Screen from Ebuyer with free delivery! Just also worth a thought...

All i need is a word processor and a browser...thats 100 pounds saved in my book, although i do kind of agree on the keyboard point but unless you have fat fingers i really don't see it as much of an issue.

Pocket sized net top? yes please! Although i am going to pass on this as i can only see the price dropping ...when its sub 100 ill pick one up.
#24
Bought a Dell Mini 9, four weeks ago, GF keeps half inchin it :x thanks OP put me out my misery, got her this, small cheap and durable perfect to surf the net, create and edit office docs, and maybe play some media files. XP is a bonus to ! Got a bit frustrated with Linux Ubuntu on the Dell so installed nlited XP, probably do the same with this to give us little more space and speed.

No harm in that but dont complain when the websites dont fit on your screen, cos its tiny!

I like the idea behind them, but as long as people dont start complaining about websites not being designed to fit on the pages because thats going to stifle creative websites a bit.

What they really need to start making is fold out screens.
#27
isnt it better to go for a acer aspire one for £175 or cheaper where you get better processor and bigger screen as the 7" is a tad too small.

nice deal! also worth thinking about
note that the HP 2133 with HD is also available from ebuyer for £189
#29
Quidco tracked :thumbsup: making it £147.00
#30
The ebuyer price is good..athough obviously excludes an XP licence (another £50 or so), it runs the slower atom cpu and its white. Bigger screen is a definite plus point though.

You should be able to add more ram (or replace the 512) to the one that the OP posted too (about £25 for a 1gb stick) which makes it very similarly specified for about £50 less after you take into account the XP licence.
#31
it has a celeron processor
#32
CPW description not to forthcoming to say the least ! anyone know whether this model has a webcam

Edit :- YES

Bit more info from CPW site here

Crucial has 2gb for £17 and 1gb for £9 inc. delivery
and 7% quidco for crucial as well :)

The atom 1.6ghz is faster then the celeron 900mhz. Although for web browsing you won't notice the difference.

Basically the Asus 900A mentioned is a good deal. Its £40 more and like you point out, does not have XP, which is £50-£60 OEM.

It all depends what you want and preferences.

All i need is a word processor and a browser...
Then don't waste your money on Windows with all its virus and malware worries - get a Linux machine.

I really don't recommend this computer - the 7" display is too much of a compromise. You should be able to get an Acer Aspire One (for instance) for not much more, and it has a much better display and keyboard. Maybe it doesn't have Windows but you only need that for some games, most of which require a more powerful machine anyway.

i have a n810 - download relevant packages and it runs open office, brilliant kit.o
does the linux eeepc suffer 'browserd' lag ?

does the linux eeepc suffer 'browserd' lag ?


The EeePc 701 with Linux is surprisingly fast . My problem with Linux is that I cannot
install some things on it . Sure , there are workarounds for lots of programmes but many
are too complicated for me to bother with .

BTW The Asus website shows this as having 1 Gb ram .

Which weights what, four times more than this? The battery life on this is great, it's tiny and weighs about the same as a book - it's also about the size of a DVD case. 13.3" is too big for my use when I travel, which is usually once a month. Celerons are fine for web-browsing, word processing and general tasks - I don't need to edit video, play games or any of that, I have a 360 for the games and a Mac for the editing. If you can't see the appeal, that's unfortunate - no need to go on about it though.
#39
It is pricey for the spec. You can get the Acer one for a little more - not windows, but easy the install.

I understand the appeal but I think this is not value for money.
#40
7" is just about OK for a digital photo frame, but a computer? Looks like a phone without a phone.

Still very nice for those who like gadgets :)
