interesting looking unit, but the short battery life is a deal breaker for me

guess the best advice to anyone buying netbooks is get the intel atom n570 processor. the n455 suck when you compare. and i get 12% staff discount off this ehe

'Android 2.1 operating system' ?!!!...

I bought this a few months ago for £199 with the dual core n570 which this one has. It looks like they have the description wrong as my D257 (which seems to be the same spec) lasts for 7-8 hours. The sound is appauling though. At first I though there was a fault - you couldn't watch a movie on it without external speakers. The screen is good until you move you head an inch to the left or right then you can't see it properly. This may be a really fast netbook by comparison to other netbooks but it's my first netbook and I'd say the performance is appaulingly slow even after I've updated all drivers and removed all the bloatware. Not impressed at all by this machine. You can dual boot into android or windows 7 starter but android is useless on this and I doubt you will use it as the OS is not built to be used with a mouse.

Thanks for the info, I was going to get my son this for Xmas so couldnt believe it when I saw this deal posted but will go for the 15" Fujitsu laptop deal posted earlier instead.

Thanks again.
