I have this exact model (paid £310 at Dixons Tax Free in September) and I'm quite happy with it now I have the Windows 7 upgrade (£20) on it. It was horrific with Vista though.
#2
Bought this model from Tesco last summer for a lot more than this!

Battery life is more like 3 hours than 5. Video playback can be patchy, BBC I-Player is particularly bad. It runs very hot! Screen is bright and clear. Size and weight make this a very good compromise between a net book and laptop, however the processor struggles with more than one task. Installing Windows 7 and removing Norton improved things a bit.

A good price.

Shame its running Vista.

Buy a compaq mini 311c from Expansys it's a far far better netbook and has Ion so can pump out 1080p. I have one and its the best netbook out there.

Shame its running Vista.


Vista works fine on this though I did upgrade to Windows 7. The 250gb versio,n which was posted here about a week ago, is still available for £15 less..

[FONT=Verdana]Here's the link to the previous deal for this model of netbook (came with a 250GB hard disk instead & is currently priced at £224.99p) from Amazon UK - I've included as it does contain some additional information, which is relevant on this deal i.e. unclocking/overclocking the CPU.

[FONT=Verdana][COLOR=Navy]+1[/COLOR] - Agree, as I've seen it run nearly as stable as Windows 7.

Here's a few links to guides on how to optimise Windows Vista.

By no means a perfect lapbook, but the build quality seems astonishingly good...

I'm typing on the 250gb version at the moment

Vista is fine with all the updates, aero turned off and Norton removed.

Does run hot but using a CPU tool like RMClock reduces this significantly.


screen is fantastic compared to most netbooks
#9
What is it like generally with standard definition videos? Or with 720p? Also is flash & youtube okay? Thanks.
#10
struggles with 720p.

fine with normal video.

managed to overclock mine to 1.44ghz
#11
Having had terrible experiences with HP, I'm on the look out for a replacement. As long as this company has nothing to do with my sworn enemy, HP, this wolf is interested.

Was going to pull the trigger on this until I saw the price increase.

Aww cmon now, windows vista is the equivelant to windows ME , it was simply put there to fund the proper OS they wanted to pump out. Chuck windows 7 on it, never mind patching up a sinking boat lol.

or ignore all the hype and put xp on which still uses less resources and is ideal for this machine:)

how about this then, put XP on if you want it to run a little quicker, but want an 8 year old OS, whilst stable, its still 8 years old.

or if you want to have it run a little slower than xp, but want an OS that has all the bells and whistles on, then put windows 7 on it.


however, reagrdless of what anyone says, just dont put or leave windows vista on it.


there, i`m not gloryfying windows 7, just that i though it would be a long time before i got knocked off XP , and now all my machines run windows 7. Nothing wrong with xp, just thats its old, and lacks features that windows 7 has to offer.

Back down to £239.99 and in stock. (Not sure how you un-expire things)

[FONT=Verdana]But if you can't afford to purchase Windows 7 straight away those links will help to keep the locally installed Windows Vista ticking over.

[COLOR=Navy]+1[/COLOR] - Agree, as also some members prefer using Windows XP especially for supporting older software/hardware, which are not fully supported under Windows 7.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]I suppose it's down to what extras your referring to within Windows 7, as a few of them can be replicated within Windows XP via third-party software.
