Dont know how good this i but certainly good price
Whilst there may be hugely powerful laptops out there - you could be paying way over the odds for a lot of functionality that you will never benefit from. This lightweight, low-cost laptop does exactly as it says. There are very few if any laptops that match the minibook mini laptop for value; it''s the perfect micro laptop for surfing the web and undertaking word processing tasks on the move - or even if you just want to save space. One thing you instantly notice about this mini laptop is its size and weight; it is an excellent travel companion as well as perfect PC for carrying around the house. The outer casing has an attractive piano-black finish, the keyboard is tactile, the mouse pad easy to use and the 7-inch digital screen provides a perfectly clear image. If you want a laptop for powerful performance, such as for gaming or movie editing, we could recommend a long list of brands. But this is not what this mini laptop is about; its about being compact, lightweight, well-built, functional and fantastic value for money. If youre looking for these features, then there are no rivals to the mini-book.

Looks ok to me for a light computer for travelling - equates with a PDA I suppose, but a bit bigger.

Why cold? looks like another nifty little blighter...and I'm sure there are Maplin vouchers kicking about that will take another tenner off it. I think you have to register with them though. :thumbsup:

OP : You should have put "For the Attention of the Rizla geezer" in the title! lol

Follow the rule guidelines and ask other users with positive feedback for advice if you're not sure. Oh...and remember to put up pix of the item and make sure you get payment first, never post first. :thumbsup:

It's a wretched piece of kit. The cpu is some obscure chinese one-off which is not intel compatible. The software is held in ROM, so forget upgrading or installing anything - you can't. Ports are too weak to power external usb hard drives and the card reader is not sdhc compatible.

You would be better served with a second-hand standard netbook to be perfectly honest. Particularly if you cannot get on with anything bar Windows.

As a PDA - maybe. It fails as a netbook compared with what is available in a similar price range on the market today.

I would of had one of these if it had Blue Tooth . With Linux you could run Maemo Map and connect to a BT GPS reciever . I ran Maemo Map on my Nokia 770 when in Turkey and plotted our travels and also was able to send & recieve e-mails . I like the bigger screen and decent sized keyboard on this Minibook and is ideal for use when traveling .

well i tried listing my x50 here but it aint working, i can see the advert but when i click it it says the thread doesn't exist.

The staples eee deal and the dixons AAO deal are WAY better than this machine. If you're serious about this netbook, go to maplin and look at it first, don't just order online. It really is a pretty low grade machine. I concur with the earlier statement about the chinese made processor and rom s/w - the whole thing is pretty dreadful.

Go to Tesco's and buy your turkey.

At least it is edible.

At £100 these things are maybe OK but otherwise get an X86 compatible CPU one.
