Seems to do a lot for the money. Normally £49.00 on other sites too.

If you want to know what it does there is a full list of the activities & games with the instruction manual which can be downloaded (PDF) from here.

another great laptop deal from MikeT! I wonder how many people will think it's a real one? (bound to be at least one!) :whistling:

So does this use Windows XP or Vista ?

just joking

Vista Premium Soopa Doopa 7.2 (with Core 2 Duo Chocolate Chips)

We bought a similar product several years ago for my son - I got caught out in that the one we bought didn't actually use the full screen to display - it was just actually the grayscale portion in the centre that displays - the rest of the screen was pre-printed.

I now know this to be the case with most of these priced ones but I stupidly thought I was going to get a full sized display for circa £25:oops:

Not saying that is definitely the case here as I've not checked further but just something to be aware of.

Yes, thanks. Makes more sense at this price. Had a look at the included software in the pdf and it looks pretty poor actually. Cold from me.

I think that if someone can confirm the 'screen' issue that it should be posted in the details on OP. Otherwise we might have many disapointed customers with this one... Thanks again Bubba Shaboo!

Screen is just a couple of inches in the middle, monochrome (not greyscale)

Yes you won't get a full LCD screen for £25.

Remember this is only a toy, the screen is just the middle area marked as such.

It will only take 2gb single chip ram:thumbsup:

Does it connect to the internets?

Integrated or discreet graphics?

Internal or external optical drive?

How's the keyboard throw?

Do you have to turn any settings down in Bioshock?
