not that much of a bargain is it ?

Yet another 10" netbook over £150. I really don't understand what people are using them for, since basic online browsing and emails can be achieved easier from a phone these days. A netbook is too small for almost anything else.

Anything that requires allot of typing but someone wants a light laptop.

my netbook had become my main computer running full windows it does more than just browsing and emails , i do a lot of travelling and wouldnt fancy constantly browsing on my phone or watching videos for too long with the netbook i can tether it to my phone go online anywhere , use photoshop etc to say a netbook is too small for something and say that a phone is more suitable is stupid especially as this costs roughly the same as my phone.

I would much rather browse on a netbook than on a phone. I use my netbook to word process everyday, I can't really do that with my phone.

You need to meet people with different needs compared to yourself.

EDIT: Do you understand now?

I use mine a lot to watch sky sports on when the wife moans at me for watching too much footy. Very hand machines to take abroad with you as well for example.

Ditto - I used to have a PC and a laptop and have replaced my whole setup with a netbook. I'm not a gamer or a speed-freak and my netbook so far has handled everything I've thrown at it (including photoshop)

It may not suit your lifestyle pet2000, but not everyone has to follow suit !!

Wordprocessing, emails, watching movies without squinting, itunes library, spreadsheet and all with a proper keyboard.

Oddly enough i use my phone 'to make phonecalls'

I would strongly beg to differ that an email can be sent easier from my phone (very reliable Nokia E51). It would be a bit easier if I had a phone with a Qwerty keyboard but realistically I would be looking at a £100+ phone and the phone would be a lot bigger in my pocket.

I use my netbook instead of my main PC because a) it boots up quicker b) it uses less power

I use my netbook instead of my phone because a) I can move arond the internet screens a lot easier b) loads more pixels/screen area c) I wouldn't dream of writing a document on a phone... the thought of the hassle of then getting it printed out - don't even think about it (maybe if you have a wireless printer it would be okay) d) ditto spreadsheets e) P2P downloading - not even sure it is possible on my phone f) memory-map software not available on a mobile asaik..... the list could go on if I had the time or the inclination.

I also have a laptop but the netbook is a lot easier and I would always take the netbook out for using Memory map instead of the laptop.

actually forgot about sports i hook mines up to my projector to watch most games with sopcast and movies too plus i can stream my downloads to ps3 the only thing a netbook cant do that a laptop or pc can is burn discs internally or play games

Can you show us better for less?
#13
That's decent. I could use it as a development tool. Coding, databases, spreadsheets etc. Cheaper and lighter than a laptop.
Hot from Me

Pet2000 there is your answer. You could also beg the question what use is an 'iPad'? It is just a big iPhone. Nowehere near as powerful as a Laptop that is half the price. How can they justify charging £600 for an iPad? a Pointless toy.

He has a point, these have been available from the outlet for far less in the past which makes the £200 look on the pricey side.

not very cheap! not when we have seen many notes books lately for less than 150 quid

Any views on the netbook instead of what you all use it for,my old Dell laptop is on its way out and i'm lookg for something to replace it. £250 is my max spend,just need something reliable,not bothered on cd/ dvd drive,must have good size HD of 160gb min. Mainly used for browsing,watch occasioal movie,and i doubt i would get it in my price range but a hdmi socket would be great. refurbished or S/H i don't mind

I can't believe they are still shipping with XP installed.......hasn't Microsoft withdrawn support for this os now.?

I'd get a netbook like this but with an HD (1366x768) screen for proper internet browsing. Occasionally I can't browse some pages properly (usually pop up types where the pop up is bigger than the netbook screen and I can't scroll). When I was looking for a netbook you could occasionally get an HD one on the Dell Outlet for less than £200.

XP is better than Windows 7 Starter for many people. My local library has just replaced all it's computers with Dell Vostro all-in-one type units and they are all running XP.

In answer to your question - no they are not withdrawing support. You certainly wouldn't want Vista on a netbook.

Have you looked into downscaling your resolution? i have the acer aspire one 9'' screen and i think the default resolution is 1024x600 but on xp there was a program that allowed you to change it(a1ctl) and for windows 7 i found instructions to alter the reg and enable downscaling on certain resolutions

£200 is a little much for what you get. Would be worth it if it had an ION GPU.
Not saying there are better deals out there, just that they all need to drop in price a bit.

XP is supported until April 2014 (x86 SP3, X64 SP2), so plenty of time left.

Find me a deal for a time machine, I'd love to get one at that price...
Sorry, but it annoys me when people post how cheap *** item was when they got it *** time ago. Exactly how does that help anyone right now?

Thanks for letting me know the screen problem, that would have really been no good at all, i will now look for something with a HD screen as you mention...will still have to keep more or less in budget though.

Got a Dell mini 9 when Dell mispriced them at 99 quid 2 years ago. Still going strong never once let me down. Good piece of kit.

There have always been better deals in the past and / or in the future. This is todays deal and should be compared against machines available today.

good point about the resolution - for example yahoo email doesnt work very well

It shows that spending a little more can get you a lot more bang for your buck in the end. and it also puts the deal into perspective.

As for finding you another deal, that's not my job I found a laptop as described above and have better things to spend my deal hunting time on :)

Agree you cannot be typing&browsing for long time in you iPhone..be serious - and for a netbook with a N450 this is a good price. If somebodey find a better deal today please POST IT!!!!!

I have recently bought a Mini 10 (with the Broadcom Crystal HD chip, 1366x768 screen, 250gb hard drive, bluetooth) from the Outlet for less than £200.

It replaced my (Vodafone branded) Mini 9. The extra screen real estate makes all the difference, and the step up from an 8gb ssd to a 250gb hard drive is handy too.

I use it when I travel for business and it's invaluable. Not too big, not too heavy, and having upgraded the OS to Win 7 Home premium it has every feature I need. Mine came with the smaller battery which is quite disappointing, but it sits on the desk in the hotel bedroom mostly, so not really a problem.

Microsoft will provide support services & security patches "and other critical updates" for Windows XP until April, 2014.
The licencing for XP ceases on the 22nd October.
A lot of cheaper laptops will be on the market next week with companies getting rid of their XP installed laptop/netbooks.
Will wait and see what comes out
