    Uses a netbook CPU in a full size laptop but with a decent battery at least it has one advantage.
    An OK GPU though.

    While I'm all for promoting AMD products (share holder for my sins!) Asda is incorrect as stating the processor clocks at 1.33Ghz. 1.33Ghz is it turbo mode when executing single threaded applications. It's native clock is 1.0Ghz when using multi threaded applications.

    While the turbo mode does indeed up the performance over it predecessor the C-50 we cant start on the trend of advertising products on their maximum available frequency.

    Back to the product. If your laptop is just for sitting on the sofa surfing the net, using facebook and watching youtube but don't like the idea of a small screen on a netbook then this should fit the bill nicely.

    On a chassis of this size with this APU then Dell could have made it a fan-less design which would have been a big selling point for many but I suspect they probably haven't to save a few pounds.

    My OH has the previous model with the C50 CPU and 2Gb RAM. They were overpriced at £300 IMHO but at £200 these are very good value. Turn off a few of the Aero animation features and they are good to go. They will play most (all?) casual games without any problems too. The battery life is great :)

    Dual core or single core or triple core @ 1.33ghz or what?
    I'm confused sorry ^_6

    Maybe I'm misinterpreting the numbers but an AMD C60 chip gets a truly rubbish rating at http://www.cpubenchmark.net/.

    Possibly offset by the rest of the spec I still wouldn't buy this eventhough it seems really good value.

    I am very tempted by this, had to replace the backlight on my emachines laptop and the display has never been as good as it was before, heat added from me.

    C60 consumes 3x times more energy then same entry-level Intel's Atom N2600. Its Win 7 score is 3.1 (3.3 Atom's). And if you can have Intel chip paired up with Nvidia's ION (any gen - should be easy within £190) it would blow this platform out of the water. The only 'plus' here is 15.6" screen, but it is low quality and in fact only 10" 'resolution-wise' (1366x768) which really matters, so hardly a redeeming feature.

    How does this compare to a second hand Dell D620 Core 2 Duo 1.66Ghz,512MB Ram,80GB HDD,DVD Rom (no Windows, no mains unit) listed here as Hackintosh material?http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/dell-latitude-d620-core-2-duo-t5500-1-6ghz-hackintoshable-14-1-1280-x-800-widescreen-1206090

    would not buy, the lowest you want to go in a 15" notebook is Pentium B950 or so.

    This+ suitable ssd= a nice machine, 1.0GHz is more than enough for browsing, e-mails and some basic office stuff, no need to moan about the CPU, at this price this what you get. Thanks OP for posting this nice deal. Hot for me.

    *Facepalm*

    C-60 APU consumes 9w. The N2600 consumes 3.5w. ION consumes 15w or ION2 12w.

    Now I gave my nephew the half time from the football to work out the maths (he's only 5) while I made a cup of tea, and the results are in.......

    N2600+ION=18.5w
    N2600+ION2= 15.5w
    C-60=9w (He was a little confused at 9+0!)

    So there you have it, your not smarter than a five year old!

    Also you wont find a cedertrail ION combo as it's not possible due to our good friends at Intel.

    He's now happy with a curly wurly (for good maths) and I'll get back to the football. :)

    I do not doubt that, but this cpu seems to be Moore's Law turned upside down.
