Why all the cold votes?? Some feedback would be nice to why voting cold... Can anyone find cheaper or same screen size/graphics spec for cheaper.

Looks a far better option than a Netbook. Pity it isn't the dual core version, but that would be wanting a bit too much! ;-)

Very slow processor, runs very hot and very poor battery life.

Great price for this! Voted Hot!

That may be true, I am no techie.... But struggling to find something similar as don't want the 10.1" screen and also prefer something that can handle a few tasks. Of the reviews I seen... give this the thumbs up.
#7
HOT!
I would buy, but have already x2 13'' notebooks. Great price!:thumbsup:
#8
I have the Acer Ferrari One 11.6" netbook which is as good as netbooks get performance wise. RRP £400 but you should be able to get it for £350 ish with a bit of work! Most reviews agree it is the best netbook money can buy whilst some also say the keyboard is the best keyboard on any netbook or laptop bar none. It is a lovely machine definitely!

this is hot!

My thoughts exactly! :-D
#11
Super hot despite the odd cpu choice!
#12
delete all the junk software that HP put on this and it'll run great. Ignore the previous poster who said it runs hot and has poor battery life - you'll get 4-5 hours out the 6 cell battery if your surfing.

I have the single core version but mine was the top end one, 4GB, 500GB, (I bought it 2nd hand, couple of months old, as New off eBay £410)

Your both right - out of the box it does run hot and battery not great, however I put Windows 7 on, got rid of pre loaded software, updated to latest Bios and bought a 9 Cell Battery.

Now wouldn't want anything else - no heat or fan noise problems, not slow by any means and I throw alot at it and battery wise getting 3/4 hours - at this price worth considering :thumbsup:

Nope. I am in the process of finding the best deal on this and it is £385 on ebuyer as "ex-display" other than that you won't find anybody giving more than £5 discount on RRP - Acerdirect

Hoping one of the big retailers will do their usual 10% off if you buy on Xmas day or something, otherwise I'll have to stump up the £399.00

Agreed, reviews show it to be the best notebook on the market at the moment and it comes pre-loaded with Windows 7 so no faffing around.

Down side, no optical drive so unless you keep the recovery partition or know how to load and boot from USB will need a USB DVD to recover / install software
#15
Ordered this last week and it arrived yesterday. Pretty good piece of kit, only issue I have found is that it tends to run pretty hot and the fan goes non-stop. Guessing this is due to the processor being working non-stop.

Compared to my Vaio there isn't much preloaded junk on it. Not sure if I will bother upgtrading to Windows 7 but will seriously consider upgrading the memory to 4gb in future.

Just wish it came with the sim card reader then I could bin my usb dongle.

Also it shold be noted that this is not a netbook, it is an actual notebook!
#16
why don't you just ditch the dongle and access internet thu your phone via bluetooth.
That's if yo have a capable phone of course?

I just purchased this laptop. Was waiting for a decent netbook with Windows 7 to come along. But seen this and it looks like it will do the trick. And unlike previous poster - I will DEFINITELY be upgrading to windows 7. That along with minimizing any resource hungry apps should help with any negative points about this laptop. Mind you I'm not expecting anything 'high end' for 349quid.

HOT:santa:

... updated to latest Bios and bought a 9 Cell Battery.... battery wise getting 3/4 hours

I might be too used to the figures for netbooks, but isn't 3 hours a bit poor for a 9-cell? :?
#18
I would still go for Samsung n510. Performance wise it's very close, slightly slower during normal usage but better in 3d environment. Much better battery life and running temperature and most important from my point of view non glossy screen in n510.

I've got the more powerful version of this with the dual core Athlon. Really nice machine, well built, very small. The higher end machines come with an external DVD/CDRW in the box, which is quite nice :)

Battery life isn't great, but, for a small portable machine that I can actually use (i.e. not an awful Atom processor or tiny netbook screen) it's great for taking on trips and when you need to travel light.

I put Windows 7 on mine as well :)

Key bit: and I throw alot at it and battery wise getting 3/4 hours

I can get nearly 3 hours of video with the 6 cell, so browsing and a 9 cell would do a lot more than 3/4 hours :)
#21
anyone got a good sleeve / protection option for this or similar laptop?

Also regarding memory upgrade. Do you think it worth doing - considering comments from previous post/s?

I agree with above comment - just got Acer Ferrari One delivered few days ago - much better netbook. another one is still sealed but could give it away for £380.

Other options people may want to consider when looking for a medium sized screen laptop:

For me 10' netbooks are too small and 15' too big, so 12'-13' is a perfect screen size for what i need.

My machine originally came with a 4 Cell Battery - this was very poor and would play about 1 hour 20 mins Video before dying - as outlined my 9 Cell Battery lasts for 3 - 4 hours thats it, but it its a compaitable battery - maybe the HP 6 Cell is better? that's what I get......

Just wanted to say that HP warranty and customer service is first class...the hard drive in my HP laptop gave up after just 6 months and they sent a courier out to collect, repaired it and couriered it back to me within a week. And that was just a standard warranty, not some add on...so yeah, you should deffinately have peace of mind with hp

Taken from Minilaptop CPU showdown: Atom vs. Neo vs. Nano


Perhaps the most telling observation is that in spending hands-time with systems using all three processors, we didn't find any large difference in our anecdotal usage experience (although only the HP dv2, with more RAM and better graphics, dared to run Windows Vista). All were perfectly adequate at providing a good Netbook experience, which leads us to repeat our often-used mantra that Netbook nirvana requires one's expectations to be appropriately modest. They're great for Web surfing, sending e-mail, working on office documents, maybe some light multimedia playback, and not much else--but that's what most of us primarily use our laptops for anyway

Anyone know if this plays 1080p ?

Thx.

Seems a lot of people are upgrading to Windows 7. I would need to purchase a cd/dvd drive to install it, is the upgrade worth it?

Invest in 10 minutes of learning how to make a usb bootable installation then :thumbsup:

i had a dv2000 which was the previous generation of this model, and it ran extremely hot and fan was very noisy. u could fry an egg on it when switched on. laptop died a month after 1 year warranty ended with a burnt out motherboard. replaced motherboard, and it died again a month later. gave up after that. was a known problem with the dv2000 series - looks good but didn't work good. i'm staying away from hp after that experience.

Looks like a good deal so just ordered one. Thanks. :thumbsup:

Sounds Unfortunate.... Reason I'm going with this is the Brand and aftercare etc, not 100% but is there not some consumer rights guideline that higher value electronics items have a longer life expectancy like tv's 3 yrs etc... and you can challenge the manufacturer and get a replacement/repair... This could be down to individual items or brands but sure someone challenged S*ny and received a replacement after 2 yrs... even though warranty was 1 yr.

Back to this model, feedback from current owners say not the same problems with this generation, so i'm in there. :thumbsup:

Thanks very much. Heat added. Ordered :)

Had the exact same issue with my DV2000 and I've still gone back to HP, taking out an extended warranty this time ;-) Customer service was great.

Any issues running Windows 7 on the standard 2gb?

Ive read great reviews on the acer ferarri but nearly all reviews said the battery was poor. How long does your battery last and is there an option for a bigge battery?

About 4 hours for me (6 cell) which is pretty good but not sensational. Also comes with 3GB RAM (max 4GB), Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit edition; and the Dual Core Athlon (Windows rating of 3.6). Screen resolution is 1368 x 768 I think! I got mine for £429 from Very.co.uk on buy now pay in a year but with 15% off (making it £364.65) and also 8% Quidco making it about £335 in total (just got to pay it off within a year or get hit with big interest charges!).

Not true - there's any number of Intel CULV machines offering similar performance.

Again, not true. Battery life isn't great - if you need a decent runtime, then take a look at the Acer Timeline 1810TZ instead.

I think the screen resolution is the 16:10 format - 1280x800. Good price you paid there! Is there not a settlement fee on the finance? There's normally a £25-60 "admin charge" for the buy now pay later schemes!

One important difference is the Intel 4500 graphics on that Acer vs the ATI graphics on the HP. If someone wants good all round performance on the move with some graphical grunt, the HP makes a great buy. If you just want to do boring office work and never play a video or game, then yes, the Acer with it's battery life might be the better buy.

Maybe worth giving Linux a try first, most linux operating systems can be used / installed from a USB drive (no need for CD/DVD's) very easy to use with http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

There is no settlement fee on the finance! The graphics are really good too e - 3 for Windows 7 but 5.0 for gaming. The screen resolution is definitely 1368 x 7something!
