It's a good price for a netbook with this spec. But in terms of value for money, I wouldn't say its brilliant when there are (albeit expired) deals like the ferrari acer 11.6" going round for just £15 more. If it's a netbook your after this is a good buy, but the fact that it's dual core often misleads people. It offers a performance increase to most netbooks sure, but it's power is still quite limited. It still only achieves a benchmark score of about 500, and is severely restricted by 1gb ram.

Having said this, if you are happy with netbook performance this is a great buy - nice looking, reputable brand, good build quality etc and at a good price + slightly better performance. Just don't be mislead by the fact that it's dual core, and expect outstanding performance.

I'd pretty much agree with what William said. Just a word of warning - if you are new to netbooks many people find the 10 inch screens just a bit too small.

You might want to think about the Dell 11z which you can get for £230 which has 11.6 inch screen more ram and a full version of windows 7 (cpu is slightly slower though)

Got one in January.. really nice Netbook and I'm really pleased with it. RAM is easily upgradeable via a panel on the base, but I believe it only has room for a single module - so if you want to go from 1GB to 2GB you need to buy a single 2GB module and ditch the 1GB.. which is a bit annoying! :)

No complaints from me though. Oh - other than the "out of box experience" which takes about an HOUR from the first time you turn it on to actually getting to use the thing as it does loads of driver installs and then clones the HDD into a recovery partition! I just hosed it and did a clean install of Windows 7 on it.. nice and speedy now :)

William J1, is there not a substantial improvement between a N450 and a N550?

I got an N450 and I have always wanted to upgrade to a dual core N550. I just use my netbook to surf the net.

Will I be able to see a big improvement or a very slight increase in speed and not worth the extra spend?

I wouldn't have thought so.....
The benchmark score for the 550 is 561 compared to 319 for the 450.

To put that in context a mid -range CPU would normally score 1000 upwards

Bit more & out of pocket by £100 as have to wait 30 days before can claim cashback. I keep almost committing!

I would hold your horses on that purchase mckayc.

The new AMD Fusion mobile CPUs are very close to being released which will pack a stronger punch than any Atom CPU Intel have released and also it will have on die GPU. I have my eye on the Lenovo x120e which is due for release in about 2 weeks.

Either way the fact that a new range of CPUs are coming out means it will drive down the cost of all Atom powered netbooks. If you are not desperate for a netbook right now then wait it out as I have a strong feeling in a month or so prices will start to tumble even more than what they have done already.

Thanks for comment. Sure won't be able to afford latest models, but if impacts on rest may well hold off. Thanks Again.

great deal - bought one, but now now back up to £229.99

I use my netbook for travel as the size is ideal for this. Can do all of the PC things (plus Voip Phone calls) needed when on the hoof, so it serves its pupose perfectly. Always revert to my desktop when back. I have a 15.4 inch laptop but it is too cumbersome in comparison to cart around. Intend to buy the Samsung N150 to relace my Toshiba Netbook.

How much will the Atoms drop in price when the new Fusion processors come in ?
