Was in the Poundstretcher store in Bletchley over the weekend, and noticed this rather neat looking Smartbook/Netbook, which is available in either Black, White or Pink (Perhaps a useful valentines gift idea?).Bear in mind this isn't a small laptop, and a lot of top end phones can probably do what this does, but with their small keys and screens, they are hardly convenient or practical.This would be ideal for young children, or for those that need portable internet / email access (WiFi hotspots or buy a USB dongle).It's low spec is reflected in it's price, but is fine for it's intended use, which also includes basic office tasks, infact my wife uses an old Dell Latitude CPi laptop for her emails/Facebook, and general web surfing, and it's specs are almost identical, and that runs XP (albeit rather slow!), but it was cheap, and ideal for her to learn on, but it's big, heavy, and clumsy, so this would be more ideal, it all depends on what you want it for, it's low spec, so not for everyone, but afterall it is only £99.99.
This is available nationwide, stores only, as although listed on their website, I couldn't see anyway to order this online.
