Refurbished with 3 months warranty
One thing you instantly notice about this the Elonex ONEt 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 netbook is about; it''s about being compact, lightweight, well-built, functional and fantastic value for money.The following graded products have been fully tested including the below criteria;- Screen for excessive scratches or missing pixels- Hard disk drives for mechanical failure and read / write function- Batteries and charges - Wireless signal reception - Keyboard and touchpad - Cosmetic damage, excessive scratches or cracks.As these are graded products, they may have signs of use i.e. small scratches but not judged to be excessive.These products are complete with a 3 month warranty cover.

Have you read the reviews? It's about £98.99 over priced.

Yeah, if it was a quid i'd think about getting on to use as a paper-weight or a door stop. I think it's pretty much the same as the elonex webbook, i'm installing windows and linux on my m8s one right now & i have to agree with the reviews, it's a loada cr%p!
#5
have you read the reviews? most of them were written by people who can't even spell or type so i guess they had problems following basic instructions-or even reading them!
I haven't used one of these and am unable to comment on value for money but if you want one of these it would appear it is a good price. Thanks OP!

These can be had imported but brand new for around this price or less "although admitedly maybe only from fleabay".

Can't see paying this much for a second hand unit being a hot deal.

better with the asda deal for the acer @ £150

My girlfriend was bought one of these by her dad as a present and I wish he had consulted me first. It runs a customised version of debian linux, which in itself is not a problem but they have done it in such a way that linux apps cannot be directly ported to it, even if you have the source code. It doesn't run any 'native' debian apps and there is no online repository, so you can't just do an apt-get. Instead you have to go to the manufacturers website and download a .info file and a .patch or .xap file, then use the software installer to find the downloaded files and install them. There are currently only about 22 apps and games available and even though you can get a root console, you have to be far better with linux than I am to turn this into something useable. Heres the website with the apps if anyone wants to have a look - ignore the different branding, if you look at the products page you can see this elonex is exactly the same machine.

I'd be more worried about the 3 month warranty tbh, being a refurb and all...

It runs a customised version of debian because this thing does not have an Intel compatible processor inside. It runs on a MIPS chip, which limits your choice of operating systems to whatever is installed on it. Forget about running Windows on it. Windows NT 4 came out with support for MIPS, but I doubt it would run on this version and you would no hope of getting any of the drivers needed for the graphics card or usb.

Don't even think about USB on NT4. NT4 does not support USB at all as USB requires Plug and Play and NT4 is not a Plug and Play Operating System. Basically, don't touch this 'laptop' with a bargepole unless you enjoy returning things as a hobby.
