maybe, but it has an 80gb disk and its £219. the other are all £350 ore more at this spec.

incorrect. this was the 2gb. Now its a different spec,. with 80gb for the same price.

That 80Gb hard drive will not be solid state like the others you compare the price to. Thus the battery will not last as long.
#7
Although, that was for the 2GB SSD variant in all fairness. This is the more useful 80GB version. Not bad price, but MSI & Advent beat it on spec. albeit at a premium.

Yes, 80Gb HARD DRIVE, not 80Gb SOLID STATE DRIVE.

Don't forget what looks to be like 5% quidco too.

studies have shown that SSDs use no less batteries then HDDs, in fact mostly they use more.

HDDs also last longer and allow more writes before dying

give me an HDD anytime!

Not off to a great start. :whistling:

I looked at one instore and agree that it looks too plastic. It'll snap if you drop it IMO. :-D

Good price though if you can't afford the wind.
#12
I thought it had been established the use of hard drive vs solid state made little difference to the battery?

Solid state is more durable and you can chuck your laptop around a bit.

HDD uses more energy when running at maximum or some such but most f the time, standard hard drives aren't running at maximum where as solid state is either fully on orr off.

I think Elonex have gone bust. No backup spares, built from unique parts? My relation had a PC and the motherboard blew, was not able to find anything compatable. Result scrap!!!!!! BEWARE.
#15
guys, there is nothing at this price, near this price on the market. yes the HP 2133 is nicer, and so is the apple macbook air. and you may not like the plastic (it looks as good as the advent IMHO). Buts its asmall portable for £219 with an 80gb HDD. If you can spend £400 then you can spend £400.
This totally blows the eee PC 701 out of the water in my view ...

:thinking:

I agree that it's good if you can't afford the more expensive models and I agree that it won't be as good as the Mac air but Google the review of the Elenox ONE and ONE+. The processor is painfully slow.

At one stage (maybe still) the Advent 4211 could be had for £250 with vouchers. I would rather pay the extra £30 - £60 for something that would last.

Don't get me wrong, I'm no MSI fan boy as I wanted an EEE PC 901 but I've dropped my Advent twice and it's still going strong. The MSI's are well made. The Elenox laptop looks like a V-tech imitation but IF you have to have a webook and can only afford £220, go for it.

I have the asus eee pc900. Its the best one for me, simply as its the lightest, and thats important (under 1kg). Its also still got the celeron 900mhz which is faster then the via and the new atom at 1.6mhz. The only problem is the battery life, so you need to buy a new long life battery.

However, with hindsight, I would rather have bought this one. 80gb gives you much more play area and its so cheap, so what if you only use it for a year and throw it away!

This is an entirely different architecture to those machines. They use some 300MHz system on a chip setup, whilst this uses a Via C7-M chip, which is clocked over 5 x faster, which is similar to that used by the HP Mininote, which is £350 and clocked 400MHz slower than this.

Whilst this chip can't hold a candle to the Atom processor either in terms of performance or energy consumption, this is undoubtedly a bargain for the price you pay. Plus, since it uses a standard 2.5" HDD, it can most likely be upgraded further, whereas the lower-end EEEPCs cannot.

What about the Acer One - looks pretty good IMO ;.

Personally I have ruled out the Asus EE PC's as the keyboard is too small.

Seems to be £264 now + delivery = not much of a deal now.

:oops: my bad.

I take it that there would be no difficuly installing xp on the linux version?

Ive got a 4211 and it was well worth the money....bearing in mind i paid £250 for it with a better chipset, more ram and a better quality feel and case (and with xp installed) I dont see this as too much of a bargian...until someone can convince me that the via chipset with 512mb will work smoothly its a cold from me

Because it's slower, 50% heavier, and probably had even less battery life than the 701?

the 4211 is £279 + delivery

quidco is also available on this deal

don't know where you get this feel thing. both the advent and the elonex use the same type of construction. have you seen the webbook ?
#28
Looks good enough to me... Ideal for games, maybe not. But I don't play many games and definitely wouldn't on a 10inch screen.

For the purposes it would be used for it's OK!
#29
some good comments ---
i would wait for the expected new releases in oct when several models due
#30
To be honest, a 1.6GHz VIA C7-M is just as good as an Atom, i.e., they're both underpowered CPUs but good enough for the task. I ran an 800MHz VIA C3 system for a good time, and that was okay, and a fraction of the speed of this system.

What chipset does this use? A lot of the VIA chipsets have hardware acceleration for video and acceptable 3D capabilities, unlike the dire Intel chipsets.

For the price (or the price it was) it was a good deal, in my opinion. Lack of detailed specifications is an issue.

If you are happy with throwing away a £219 machine every year, you might as well buy something more reliable for double the price.

If it is just hard disk space you are after, buy a passport drive. You can get 250Gb models cheap these days, and they weigh little more than a spare battery.

This one is a 120GB HDD, weight under 1KG. I'll give you the smaller screen, but that's all.
The CPU for the Elonex is listed as a VIA C7M. see below for comparisons:

The Acer Aspire looks to be a great value device

Remember that the battery is only 2200 MAh so you have to buy an extended battery for £79 as otherwise you will just get 30 mins or use time
#34
I've just bought eee pc 901. Chose it because it has 6-8 hour battery life.

Most of these, including the Aspire one has a battery life of 2-3, which would barely get me through one lecture.

For those who aren't aware, apparently Dell are about the have their first foray into this market.

Clicky

When it'll be with us here, who can say, but it's been promised for a while now.

I have my reservations about it - esp the keyboard, but it could be a cheap alternative...:santa:

HTH,
