FS: I'm looking for a Laptop/Netbook £150.00

I'm looking for a laptop or netbook.

In the case of a netbook I'm looking for something with a reasonable amount of storage space so I guess that rules out SSD-based, other than that ION would be nice but not essential. Battery life is also an important factor. Also, if the RAM has been upgraded to 2GB that would be ideal.

In the case of a laptop I'm looking for something with a fairly basic (dual core +) cpu, no celerons please. Battery life is also important in this case. I would like an integrated graphics chipset not made by intel but then again, I really don't mind. Also I'm looking for something with 2GB + of ram or is upgradable to that level.

I am computer literate.

I plan to use this machine simply for taking notes, and doing work at, university. I do a fair bit of report writing, bit of programming in various languages and web dev here and there on my computing course. I often do long stretches of work, that's the way my attention span works, hence the requirement that battery life be good. There are some locations around the university that have charging points but a lot of the time these areas are pretty crowded and I'd rather avoid them as much as I can.

Whether an OS license is included or not does not bother me at all since I can obtain that through MSDNAA.

Thanks for your offers.
Shipping/Payment:
I'll pay via Paypal Gift or on collection (I'm around Wolverhampton/Birmingham/Walsall area and have a car)

#4

#5

#6

hi mate i have a dell mini 9 with a 8gb ssd and 2gb ram. looking for £140 deliverd or £130 collected (can send to birmingham as my sister lives there and is coming down on the weekend). has box, slip case and is in perfect condition. would be great for uni.

it has wifi, bluetooth, built in webcam and a sd card slot too.

the ssd means the battery lasts longer and the netbook is totally silent. it doesnt even have a fan! and the dell build quality is better than the asus/acer netbooks

FYI they can only be upgraded to 1.5Gb. i know because i've just dont it! its 1Gb = 2 x 512MB, 1 of which is removable. take out the 512MB & replaced with 1GB. if you try 2GB either nothing will happen or itll just read 1.5GB

I'm pretty interested, seems like a good deal although I'm not too sure about the screen size, seems a bit tiny for my liking. You able to get any pics?

This also sounds pretty good to me, pictures would be great!

I have a Samsung NC10 for £300 :) 6-cell battery ~ 5 hours realistic usage. Upgraded to 320GB Seagate HDD, PNY 2GB PC2-6400, Broadcom BCN94321, currently triple-booting XP Home, Win 7 Home Premium (retail), Mac OS X 10.6.2. Or I could take it back to stock spec for £190 delivered?


I'm liking the sound of the upgrades. By taking back to stock spec do you mean removing the 320GB HDD, the 2GB RAM and the wireless chipset as well as the multiple OS installations? Also, what is the benefit of the upgraded wireless chipset? I know it is compatible with Backtrack and such but anything else? I think I'd be fine with the original 160GB HDD although then again I'd probably end up upgrading it later. You got any pics?
#14
How long have you had it for out of interest?
#15
That's pretty honest of you :) have some rep. I think I'm gonna look into how much it would cost me to upgrade the hard drive and RAM myself...

hi mate, I'll up some pics tonight.
#18
cheers Byker :)

On a side note, anyone else got an NC10 they wish to get rid of? I seem to have been to slow for the good offer I recieved previously

Also, mumbojumbo, how much would you do yours for with back to stock spec apart from the 2Gb ram?
