Acer has launched its Eee PC wannabe, the Aspire One, pitching the product to Brits at just £199 including VAT - even though it's "not a low-cost notebook", according to the company.

The One's specs largely match those of its rivals: 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor; 512MB of 533MHz DDR 2 memory with a single SO-Dimm slot for more; and an 8.9in, 1024 x 600, 262,000-colour LED-backlit display. There's a 0.3-megapixel webcam in the screen bezel.

I'm a bit sceptical about these £200 mini laptops as not that much extra … I'm a bit sceptical about these £200 mini laptops as not that much extra you can get a fully fledged dell laptop with bigger screen, dvd writer, huge hard disk and a lot more power.



I think people are getting confused as to the market these sorts of machine are aimed at. they are not laptops or notebooks, that is not the market they are pitched at. These types of machines are pitched at the Toshiba Libretto/Sony C1F Picturebook market, i.e. truely mobile internet.

You're missing the point. These tiny laptops are designed to be small and portable. This one weighs less than one kg. Great for traveling when all you is access to the web.

120GB Version £30.00 more + 2 years warranty :thumbsup:

That's like comparing chalk and cheese, the 2 things are completely different...if you're not bothered about size and just want spec then (as you say) you can get much better value elsewhere.

However if you want a small laptop (i.e. web book, sub-notebook, etc.) for portability then you can't beat things like this and the EeePC. They come in around 1kg (if that in many cases), I've yet to see any normal laptop come anywhere near that! My T42 weighs a ton in comparison.

I saw these in Tesco Norwich (Blue Boar lane) for £198 earlier today.

The hard drive versions really show up the limitations of the battery!

no they don't. Battery usage is the same in actual use. if you want to test youself: put a movie on both machines side by side and see which machine's battery goes first. wouldn't be a lot of difference in times.

I think I'll take your word for it, can't afford to buy both of them

lol comes from various reviews rather than me

I'm in the market for one of these. The main issue for me is battery life. The Asus allegedly can run for 7+ hours. As for quality, IBM Lenovo are bringing out the IdeaPad S10 in the states in Oct at a starting price of $399. Don't know when this will be released in the UK, but the specs look tasty 10.2" screen, 512Mb RAM and 80 Gb HDD with Windows XP. There is also a 1GB RAM and 160GB HDD for $450.
