Not gonna happen for £250.

Celeron is probably better than the Atom, but it depends what CPU your looking at - the 743 found in most cheap 13.3"'s is better, but the 353 found in the eee 701 is slower.

You wont find any netbooks with that screen res except the Sony which is £329.

NC10 is good, but for the OP its not - screen res isn't enough and it doesnt have Wireless N (although thats "only" a £10-£15 DIY upgrade)

You buy a netbook because it's portable, if you want to buy one just to save a little money then you'll be disappointed.

If you don't want the ultra-portability of a netbook, just a computer that you can occasionally transport then I would definitely buy a cheap laptop. After cashback, the following laptop is available for £255.

Other people might have more suggestions, or you could look for a better-performing refurbished laptop
