Posted a couple of days ago when it was £10 dearer.

Looks like Amazon will keep on cutting the price until enough people bite. Can't see anything to make it stand out from the crowd to be honest.

"Batteries: 6 Lithium Metal batteries required."
Check the spec. I could be mistaken but it appears to require batteries?

Good price for 6 cell battery and n280 processor.

Don't be silly.

Are these going to drop even more, when the affordable tablet (ipad's) start filling the shelves?

I`m not normally silly.
Yes, i realise netbooks can work on battery power, i have one, but i think it would be sensible to confirm this small, or perhaps large detail if there wasn`t a battery.
I`m only quoting the spec detail.Read it. You can buy a torch without batteries.....

Not sure where you got that it has up to 6 hours battery life but from the spec "Battery: 6 Cells Li-Ion 4400mAh, up to 3h battery life".

The spec says "Battery: 6 Cells Li-Ion 4400mAh, up to 3h battery life". That means it's a 6-cell battery!

Taken from the Packard Bell site, regarding the battery:

Li-Ion Battery - Large
6 cells
4400 mAh
Battery Life
Average working time is between 30 mins and 1 hour per cell.However, battery life is very dependent on the usage and the power settings of the notebook. Using the system for word processing while using conservative power management settings will consume less battery power than, for instance, playing a 3D game with maximum performance settings. Note that high brightness of the LCD screen, a lot of CD-ROM/DVD activity and loud speaker volume will consume extra battery power. With normal usage, the battery's maximum capacity might gradually decrease over time; this is normal for all batteries.

This looks pretty good, I have been using an Acer One (Asda £150 deal a while back). Great machine except the Linux OS, a real pain to work with, to add software and have been unable to print anything (have installed 3 different printers!.) Plus a slightly larger screen. So as Acer now own Packard bell, I would be getting a good machine with better OS (now wait for the Linux groupies to try and tell me it is so much better.)

> Acer One ... Great machine except the Linux OS

I agree the Linpus OS that it comes with isn't very good. Have you tried the Ubuntu Netbook Remix version of Linux? It's much more polished and works really well on the One. http://www.ubuntu.com/GetUbuntu/download-netbook

Hot from me - decent spec for that price.

Still using my Asus 1008HA when it was £199 (via here) and love it !

3D game... CD-Rom/DVD use loud speakers... this si a net book right?

Just in case i missed it, does this laptop have wifi?
#15
This looks like a good machine for the money... hot for me.
#16
I have the slightly larger DOT MA model with the bigger screen, 2gb ram etc.

It is possibly one of the nicest netbooks build quality wise I've ever used.

Very tacticle and reassuringly weighty without being heavy.
#17
many thanks for posting, got one this morning H+R added
#18
Mouse pad is way too small.

How does this compare to the Dell Mini 10v? my Dell comes in a week for £175 delivered, but just wanted to feel better :-) Looks like a good deal for the spec.

In my experience of Dell as a brand build quality has become very patchy over recent years.

D'oh just posted question in the wrong thread - seems to be a duplicate. Still....

Does anybody know what memory upgrade is possible with this machine? Is there a spare memory slot, and what is the max memory?
