Um...the Elonex OneT+ has a 400(ish)MHz processor. BargainCrazy are telling us porkies!

Do the other specs match up?
#4
They certainly appear to. I bought a bunch of these when they were released. Fine little laptops for the money, in the day when an eeepc701 was just released and cost £230.

Can't compete now, of course, given that you could pick up an Aspire 1 last week for £115 or so, so I'm not sure how to rate this...for me, the biggest problem with it was that it wouldn't run mobile internet without serious modification.

However, there's an alternative linux distro available at [url]www.littlelinuxlaptop.com[/url]. Anyone interested should check it out.

Bottom line is that the processor doesn't cut it for modern-day websurfing; e.g. no flash/youtube etc.
#5
Does it matter what the other specs are ? it's similar to ordering a Ferrari and getting a Fiat.
IF, as seems likely, these are the standard 400MHz offerings, then Bargaincrazy are breaking the Trade Descriptions Act by stating that they're 1.6GHz.

This is an ARM based netbook (TM Psion) that can't currently run Windows and will leave most people who aren't aware of its limitations feeling annoyed.
However, saying that, if you know what you're buying then this is an ok machine. ARM processors are much more power efficient than Intel/AMD/VIA and should last longer when not using mains power (given the same battery).
But they're not for most of people who'd buy an EEEPC or similar (that this advert seems to be targeting with the misleading, at best, information.)

how does this compare to the £99 A110 in tesco's?

The A110 is at least a decade ahead in terms of tech and much more useful for daily use. Although, I read they don't readily support mobile broadband dongles without jumping through a few hooks.

But you *could* run windows on it, if you really wanted, I believe.

thanks :thumbsup: will hold off & hopefully get my son an A110 from somewhere :whistling:

BargainCrazy have updated their site to say that the processor is indeed 400MHz.

Agreed. No comparison between the 2 really. Much better getting the Acer for a few quid more. Not sure that 'run' is the operative word if XP was installed. 128Mb is going to realy be restrictive if it installs at all.

I'm confused! Is this a laptop or only half a laptop and if its half only a laptop what bits does it do? I want one for my hubby so he can listen to 5 live and the sporting channels; play on some of the game sites and surf a little bit - would this do that?

No, I meant run XP on the Acer, not the Elonex and what I meant by that is that:

1. The SSD is very slow and users have reported appalling XP performance using it. I believe that this can be remedied by a 2.5" drive upgrade (for as little as £30).

2. Many users would want more than 512MB of RAM for XP and upgrading it on the 110 isn't trivial for a non-techy person.

But no, there is no way the Elonex could run XP.

You're getting confused between the Elonex One and the Elonex OneT. The One has a detachable screen and is arguably a worse investment than this machine.

Aw man - cut me some slack. I've got a bad cold today and my head thumps and my nose is streaming.

No - just confused! Will this work as a basic computer or is it just a waste of money? I have no idea what I am looking at - I just know what I want it to do!!! Thanku

This will really struggle with any flash website.
For an internet radio, light text-based web browsing (video will probably slow the machine down too much) and email this is fine *if* you're OK with using Linux. Skype should be available (check first though) and I'd be really tempted by this aspect solely to have a wireless Skype machine.

I have a Nokia N800, which is similar to this in terms of computing power, and it's great to be able to stream music from internet radio (Streamtuner is great) and carry it around the house. It uses very little power (single digit Watts) and so can be left on all the time in case I need to access the web quickly.

As has been stated, the Intel Atom based machines are much better as general purpose computer (plus they can run Windows.) I'm given to understand that flash runs much better at low resolution on these machines as well. It's not until you get onto the HD-type resolutions that the single core Atoms have problems.

In all honesty, I'd avoid it. It's a fine wee machine for the hobbyist who wants to much around with making Linux work on it, but it's not for the average person.
#19
Sorry ducky, having to vote cold. I think alot of people would be disappointed with this.
#20
Having had a look around, there doesn't appear to be a Skype option for these as they run a slightly different processor than the ARM one I thought it did.
However, the other parts do apply but, from the sounds of it, you'd be much better off with an Atom based machine running Windows.

A little understatement, as it doesn't have flash installed, so can't play it at all! :w00t:

1. I don't think it has internet radio apps readily installable either.

2. It doesn't play youtube video, as it's flash-derived, although you can download the youtube video to the machine and then play it, but at low frame-rates.

3. Skype isn't available for this processor and there's obviously no compilable source for Skype. Would be interesting to see if any other voip packages can compile for this machine; I haven't read of any as yet.

4. The Linux GUI is very basic, but it's definitely Linux, although from a different era! Still perfectly usable though. I haven't tried the 3MX distro at little linux laptops as I sold all my Elonex machines.

The N800 uses a TI OMAP2420 processor, which is an ARM11. At equivalent clock speeds this will hose the Elonex processor, perhaps by a factor of 2. I missed out on getting an £80 N800 at PC World earlier this year as the guy in front of me in the queue got the last one - I was gutted! It's a great little device.
#22
bought one of these for my daughter direct from supplier, after being on waiting list for 8 months. anyway it was very poor quality. then broke within 2 weeks, wouldn't charge at all. spoke to elonex and they said they had had a few teething problem. it went straight back. please beware!!!!!!

Just in case any of you are interested, see the link below for an Asus EeePC 901 with XP at £169.97 delivered from Dixons:-

So it'll struggle with running flash in the same way that I'll struggle to run a marathon :p

I actually bought my N800 when it was released for £270. At the time, there was nothing else that even came to close to what it did for such a low cost. Nowadays the Atom has helped to push small Intel/Windows machines into people's home for a much cheaper price than they were being offered at only 2 years ago.

I'm still looking for an ARM-based machine to use as an addition to the N800, the low power usage compared to any Intel chip is a big selling point. The Pandora console running on a similar board to the Beagle Board looks like it might be the one to keep an eye on.

i would not have a dump on it im voting cold !
#26
Can I connect this to my wireless O2 Home Broadband? If so, do I have to install the 02 software that comes on the CD?

Thanks for any replies! :thumbsup:
