IMO Dell have priced this too high as they have halved the SSD capacity for the Ubuntu model, needs to have free delivery to stand any chance. Posted for the "must have" early adoptors.

IMO for that price the Advent 4211 is a better deal or even the Asus One.

Or wait for the new Samsung NC10 or Toshiba NB100 which are both due November time.

Not exactly 'cold', but worth pointing out there are alternatives.
#2
I am hoping for a voucher to get Mini 9 cheaper.

It is unfair that in US Mini 9 was just 100 USD when bought with an XPS laptop.
#3
Beats the Tesco release due in October...but £20 more.
I think the extra £30 for XP and 16GB drive is worth it...just keep thinking it might coemdown a little.:)

...and don't keep getting hung up about the price in USA...the XP model prices up at £307 and there are lots of things cheaper in USA...and a lot of things more expensive.

2200mAh battery. That is only half the capacity of the EEE PC 900 standard battery that caused numerous complaints.
#5
The Acer version is £199.

Cold as ice.
#6
Cold I'm afraid.

As i think the 4211 is a much better deal at the mo.

Thanks for the honest opinion, much appreciated.
In your opinion whats a good price for this? :)
#8
SSD still a bit pointless imo - it's not doing anything for battery life yet, and you get tiny capacities. Fine if it's just the OS and a few docs on there, but these webbooks actually make really good portable video players. Then there's music - I've got 20GB of mp3s. Admittedly it's bloated by me ripping all my CDs at 320kbit, but still.....
#9
kinda confused bout this, the link doesn't work and its £299 on the website cheapest.....
#10
Link is working for me to quoted model
#11
I have an advent 4211 and am very happy with it for all the afore mentioned reasons.

However Im not here to comment on how much better than advent is.

One good thing I'll say about the dell is, the annoying function key is not on the bottom left of the keyboard as well the advent, msi wind, acer, etc etc!!!
Its actually next to the ctrl button one from the bottom left :-)

Thats the only good thing I have to say aboutt his product..
#12
I would personally wait for the IBM Lenovo ideapad S10, which will be out in the UK soon. Its already out in the US for $399 for the 512Mb with 80Gb HDD and XP and the 1GB with 160Gb HDD for $450. Don't know what price it'll be in the UK, but it has a 10" screen and the atom processor.
#13
Not going to vote on this one - why would someone buy this over an acer aspire one or advent 4211 which both give you so much more for your money and have full sized keyboards?
#14
Cold: for several of the reasons already outlined.
#15
I imagine Dells build quality is better than Acers.

Start of rant...

I bought an Aspire One (1GB, 8GB SSD) last weekend, planning to stick Windows XP on it. After spending 2-3 hours tweaking it, the dammed thing wouldn't charge up properly (it kept cutting out). Took it back to Currys for a refund.

Popped into Comet and noticed the display Aspire One display model had a faulty battery LED.

Getting these units fixed by Acer is a complete nightmare - try searching http://www.aspireoneuser.com/forum/.

Also, XP is painfully slow on the Aspire One 8GB SSD... http://www.jkontherun.com/2008/08/if-you-want-xp.html

Gazzie unless your heart is set on the 8.9" in which case go for an asus 901 if you can get one reasonably price, I would go for the Advent 4211 (MSI Wind clone) - fantastic machine very good build quality, best value for money IMO
#17
Thanks bluestreak56,

I'm tempted with a 901 (although the 900s are cheap from Comet at the moment). However, these computers are idea for going on holiday with, and as I've got no holidays till next year, I'll probably wait (and pick up a even better one) till next year.

Wonder how long it'll be before Apple jump on the bandwagon...
#18
The likes of Apple and Sony arent going to join in with the mini notebooks craze, as they are more premium makes. It would be a bit like BMW or Mercedes bringing out a £6000 Ford KA rival -- not going to happen. I still think the acer is the best, the SSD version is slow but hard drive is a gem works very nicely.
#19
Sony have been in the umpc market for years theyre prices are just astronomical though .. Im sure if you spoke to an apple spokesperson they would say, why buy a umpc when you can have an air ;-P

Swings and roundabouts!

I agree with your logic Gazzie, wait .. I dont use my laptop often but I just had to have it ;-P
