If it was me. I'd try to get a netbook with Windows XP. Windows 7 Starter is a watered down version of Windows 7 and is quite slow and gives you at least 30 min less battery time (you can't even change your wallpaper).

OS aside, is this a good netbook?

"Dedicated 250MB Shared graphics memory"

That makes perfect sense...

Fair price for spec, not a jaw-dropper but OK I guess. Compared to similar models you're getting the bigger HD (250Gb compared to usual 160GB) and dropping a USB port.

3hr battery life might be a bit low. The Asus 1001HA will offer 4 for a similar price.

Think these models might be the ones Virgin Media were using in their promotions late 2009.

With the all-new models releasing this summer the prices of older N280 and the humble N270 CPU units should dip. Depends if retailers want to shave prices to clear old stock.

you can change your wallpaper on windows starter if you go to your makes website and download system setting

The spec is pretty good for that price; I notice wireless N and 250gb hard disk.

Dedicated graphics OR shared graphics? Which one is it.
"Dedicated 250MB Shared" is a contradiction!

flylife,
There are always ways to do this, the point I am making is that Microsoft has strangled Windows 7 with the Starter version and this is not clearly declared.

Seriously, who cares about wallpaper, if thats your biggest criticism........

Zoostorm don't support machines sold through Argos (apparently, according to their Tech Support dept anyway), so just be aware of this. I was told by Zoostorm that Argos handles technical queries for their products as Argos modify them (in some way not fully explained!)
