At a fraction of the price :) £179.99 - http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/1020869.htm#pdpFullProductInformation I'd probably format it and install lubuntu or mint (if it can run it). And add a portable HDD.


Sadly they aren't that popular :P but the idea is novel, and in the flesh this monitor does look great. You practically have a cheap imac pairing this with the hp monitor :)

Not read the whole thread but seems many on page 1 have an opinion on something they clearly know nothing about... Desktop mode is Not exclusive to full fat W8, you also get Desktop mode on RT... The only real difference for most is the reliance on the Windows Store for software.


You ain't really 'running it' with the screen off all the time.


I'm running the full windows 8 on my atom based tablet, 20 hours on a single charge looks very realistic (one review managed 27), it is a 10" tablet with a slightly higher resolution than this tablet, I've had no problems, but I do have the option of making system fonts larger and making the desktop icons and other graphics 25% larger if I couldn't manage with the standard. I doubt the desktop mode in the background, costs much more than the not running the desktop, but the benefits of a proper Intel CPU certainly are significant. Also, I believe the Atom has lower licensing costs for Windows too, but can't find any real figures for the difference. The tablet in question is a Dell Latitude 10, and cost about the same as this one. mike


RT isn't a stupid idea, it was just executed poorly.


Sometimes having the option is not always a good thing. The desktop is always going to be on in the background and is going to drain battery as well as use up system resources while being almost unusable. If it was a RT tablet we could likely see double digit hours for battery life, the tablet would have been cheaper due to the lower licensing cost of RT and there would be the option of an ARM processor to which would have increased the batter life and made it cheaper again.

Very well put, I totally agree. It's smart and sly from Microsoft


I recently re-installed Vista (cos it wasn't working properly) but I can only install Vista Basic because I've lost my product key for Home Premium. Will I be able to install this on top of my (fully working) Vista Basic without any need for my HP product key??


People aren't hating students! It's pretty straightforward in business terms: Students, by the nature of their enquiring minds, general intellect, and how shall I put this.... some free time to explore alternatives, are the most likely consumer group to rebel against a commercial giant like Microsoft and experiment with free alternative operating systems such as Ubuntu. Microsoft need to keep students sweet so one day, when they are working, they will blindly pay for over-priced software because that's what they are used to.


Well if a house only has students living in it they don't have to pay council tax!


I would look into the T&C as when i last looked you had to agree they could contact you to confirm your eligibilty as a student doing x hrs p/wk with the threat of having to pay for full price for licence. At the time it was £70 for Win 7 pro and about £140 full price. I decided not to enter my edu email as a chance of getting a cheap way in with the threat of £140.

IPAD please don't insult this or any such devise by comparing them to the limited ipad.. ipad is nothing but an over priced and over hyped gadget..


good find..faster processor than ipad, easily available and better apps... Personally, I would prefer netbook rather than a tablet..heat for you..


lol. 3 hrs battery. Which equates to 1hr-2hr websurfing.


It's not harder to use at all...Android can be dumbed down to become an App Launcher just like IOS if you so choose (Google for MIUI as an example) but instead it has the ability to use widgets for instant access to the data you want without having to launch an app every time. As for slowing down when apps are open...Have you used any Android devices with similar spec to the Apple equivalent or are you comparing old early gen Android hardware? current mid/high end Android devices have no slow down that i've ever seen. And what's the problem with competing launchers...it give users flexibility and the ability to choose how the OS looks unlike IOS with it's like it or lump it app launcher interface.......'want widgets tough...' To be honest you sound like Apple's perfect customer....To blinkered to see IOS's shortcomings


No, it's just not as intuitive as iPhone. Not as easy to use. And it slows down with apps running. Yes, it has lots of different formats and sizes and (unfortunately) a collection of competing launchers etc. It is more flexible and that's exactly what makes it harder to use - many ways to get the same thing done does not a simpler device make.

Hi, One disk is for Office, the other two are for add-on programs. Most people can ignore those extra disks they aren't really needed. You have one Office licence, thats the product key on the yellow sticker. That licence entitles you to install the software on 2 computers.

anyone have a prob with their order?


Not really expensive if you compare like for like - Apple is a premium brand, not a bargain basement no-name. Compare with Sony for example and the prices are reasonable. Does everyone here drive round in Kia cars? No, so it's OK to pay extra for an Audi but not for a computer.


Wow pay this price for a PC and get 4x the performance.. Build quality is arguable. You can get 20" screens for peanuts now.. And you can get decent open source software for free.. Slot loading drive is a reason to buy a iMac? :/ If someone prefers Mac's to be PC's fair enough its personal preference, but its common sense that they are massively more expensive.


I have a four year old emac and a one year old Acer pc laptop. Give me the Mac everytime! Why did i buy the Mac?...Quality and simplicity. Why did i buy the Pc?....Just price...nothing more.


Ok serious video editors won't use a machine like this, I used the wrong term. I meant if you do a fair bit more than the average person then you'll want a RAM upgrade, reason being this sort of Mac is likely to be used while processing video so the increase in RAM is going to make a difference. If you're going to run a VM with Windows you'll definitely need a RAM increase.

Advice to anyone who paid by card and got a Credit note make sure you call them to get a refund to your card otherwise it looks like your money will just sit on their system.


I just got a letter stating credit note refund. Not having this - better be a card refund - as they changed the product description Sorted now

whilst waiting for them to sort out a return I noticed these posts and decided to email a complaint. Got an apologetic email back today offering me a second copy free of charge. Happy with that :thumbsup:

Can you suggest another 9" netbook with a larger ssd or even an HDD and a 6-cell battery at this price?


Thousands upon thousands of people manage to run Windows XP fine on their 701 (4GB), having done so for well over a year now. This will not be any different, I would suggest reinstalling Windows however from a slipstreamed source; mostly because any (automatic) updates will waste quite a bit of space. If you're really paranoid about space you could always merge both SSDs under Windows dynamic storage but you're going to take a performance hit.


You're thinking of the Aspire One's SSD, the SSD in the 901 is no slower than the HDD in the 1000H (as well as being completely silent with no durability worries). XP's installation shouldn't vary in size much if you're not installing programs, assuming Asus have set it up sensibly and moved all temporary and user files to the other partition (if not then it's fairly easy to do yourself), I guess the returns were mostly people who had been installing stuff to the smaller of the two disks rather than the larger.


But not many do, Windows XP will happily run in 4GB, and I assume Ubuntu well as will (considering it comes on a CD). Vista won't, but you may be able to nlite it and I assume Windows 7 will as it's been fairly heavily promoted for netbooks. As for the deal itself it's very hot, since it's smaller and lighter than the 1000H while retaining the same resolution, has slightly longer battery life and an SSD instead of an HDD. Of course, it's not suitible for anyone looking for a full subnotebook like the eee 1000HE or Samsung NC10, but it's a great netbook.


RM supply systems and services to education - primarily schools but also colleges and universities. should be ok to deal with. Haven't had this email and no sign of deal on site so I guess we need to keep an eye out for later in the week. great price although looks like you have to be a student or a parent of a student....

Sorry, I didn't realise ebuyer had started quoting prices excluding VAT. The acer is 'better specified' but you don't buy these machines for their specifications. For the same price you can get a refurbished 15" laptop that has four times the screen area and is several times faster which would make both look like terrible deals if your were judging on specification alone. Some people (including you obviously) will prefer the acer but I was just pointing out that it doesn't excel in all areas and some people may prefer this machine. Um, have you actually looked at any benchmarks? The Atom is about the same speed as the Celeron M, faster in some circumstances but slower in others. EDIT: Oh yes, the acer also has a glossy screen so it will be more reflective than the matt one on the eee.


Thank you, someone with some sense! Also you forget that the Acer has 2 card readers rather then just one, and one of them is a memory card expansion which means you can actually expand the 8GB built-in and it will come up as a single hard drive. And don't forget tha 1.6GHz atom processor, which is way better than the Celeron ****. Sure the Asus was good at one point but the competition is now just better. Come on own up - who actually bought this????


Sorry to seem rude, but this is not a helpful post. Firstly, the link you have given is to a machine costing £175. The price you quote is ex VAT. Secondly, and more importantly, the Acer is much better specified, e.g has an 8.9" screen, rather than the 7" in the Eee you have linked to. The Acer also has an 8GB drive rather than 4Gb. Taken together, the price difference of £25 is nothing, especiually if you can make that difference smaller by using Quidco and a voucher at PCWorld.




Are you sure its £149 at ebuyer, showing up as £174 here :S

Vista continuing to be vista with SP1. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/02/22/vista_sp1_security_products/


But I would imagine you might well know somebody with kids that would be eligible to order? :)


oh ffs - got all excited then realised its not open to full time university students! lame, very lame. I've wanted to upgrade my MSDN copy of Business to ultimate for ages!!!


Vista is poo. The Register has run articles claiming XP has been getting unrefined patches to slow it so Vista looks better. If you are not a gamer... http://www.ubuntu.com ...entirely free operating system that upgrades twice a year - and updates a couple of times a week (all free). 99.9% of the software that runs on it is free (but obviously no microsoft stuff - but other stuff that does the same - written by enthusiasts rather than people trying to sell you something. It boots far faster than windows. There are virtually no viruses or spyware that have been written for it, so even an "internet idiot" would find it difficult to get a virus or malware. You are not constantly interrupted by DRM etc messages for various downloaded media. You can still use Firefox or Opera for browsing (although Swiftfox is faster and uses all your Firefox settings, and everthing is identical except speed). Open office that runs on Windows is the main office package, and uses windows file formats. MS messenger still works - but in many other messenger clients - Amsn being the closest, and opens Hotmail when you click on a received message, but wont forward MSN spread viruses as its not MSN. If you order the "livedisk" it lets you either install it - or run it from the disk to see if you like it (however this does take about a month to be posted to you - but is free - and you can download it and burn it onto a disk from the site). It plays and writes DVDs free without having to bung anyone more cash. Its based on Debian Linux - but looks pretty similar to windows, runs faster, has fewer problems, and if one program is not working well for you - pick another - 99.9% are free. Also - if you are worried Linux is not really mainstream - more commercial servers run Linux than windows - do they do this as they think it is less reliable when their income and reputation rely upon it? Dont say you are used to windows - as the user interface is so close that you are unlikely to notice a difference after the first day. What will you do with the money that you have not given to Microsoft? If you want more info - ASK ME!


The only two Vista Ultimate extras worth having over Premium are IIS (which is also available in Business Edition) and the ability to legally downgrade to XP Pro. I bought Vista Ultimate 32bit and shall be downgrading for a stable (VS2005) development environment soon when I have a spare weekend ! P.s. Turining off the Areo Interface was the best feature I have found (even better than disabling UAC) P.p.s Didn't realise you could get a Radio4 gadget for the windows sidebar . Nice!
