Disappointing CPU, but if you only need light usage this should be ok. Nice price.
good for the money.
Good,
ok for a refurbished model

because its low-voltage cpu, Pasmark result Intel SU2300 @ 1.20GHz 908 points, almost twice as better as very popular Intel Atom N550 @ 1.50GHz 563 points

Everything's okay except lack of optical drive.
Much better than a netbook for the same sort of price. Heat added.

...typical for all net-books and super slim factor laptops, if someone really need it it's a problem but to be honest when for the last time you have used optical drive in your laptop - I can't even remember

While the processor isn't the fastest, it is better than some. 4GB RAM and a 9 cell battery are impressive, making this a good deal for someone who wants a light-weight laptop for use on the move I'd say.
Why does this go through an affiliate link instead of linking directly to the deal?
I particularly impressed by the guarantee of 12 moths. My current netbook has only 7 butterflies.
Please note that this item is being offered as a factory second and therefore comes with a limited warranty of one year. Factory seconds may display signs of use but they have, however, been checked and are in perfect technical condition.

That's probably the HUKD link as they earn commission on the referral just the same with all deals

Few reviews, but here's a round-up. Five hour battery apparently.

this review is for Intel Pentium Dual Core SU4100 version more power consuming
Was tempted, but not sure about the CPU. The review above mentions a SU4100, this is a SU2300?

Hardly any difference. 1.2Ghz vs. 1.3Ghz.

HDMI, eSata, HD4530 with half a gig of gddr2.... in every aspect but the CPU it's well endowed.

Very Hot TBH
Shame I have no need for it; if I could i'd certainly replace my two Acer Aspire One netbooks with one of these.

True even myself don't use optical drive much. But i faced nightmare making my laptop work after problem with Windows to reinstall it again.
This is a great price compared to a netbook imo. Should really just replace the display cable on my NC10 but this is tempting to replace it with..

I found a ViewSonic ViewBook 130 recently for the same price: 13.3" display and just 18mm thin (like a MacBook), SU7300, Win 7 Professional 32-bit, ExpressCard 34 slot (to allow USB3, eSata, FireWire etc). No optical drive and just 2GB (can up to 4GB) but really happy with it. Skirted with netbooks, the Acer Ferrari One then an Asus similar-sized but glad I got this.
very tempted to buy this to replace my acer 10" netbook but it may be on the big side for my needs.
No idea about the laptop but the processor's not bad for surfing & playing 1080p videos.

As long as you're not planning to play serious games it seems like a good value for a 15.6" laptop

My problem too. Very tempted as my NC10 is showing it's age, but 15'6 seems massive to me now. Too big (I have a desktop if I want to do anything more power hungry). At this price I'm tempted to get used to it.
Poor screen and the model is 20 months old.
Sounds good enough for my web surfing. Anyone know how portable it is?
It's worked for me...ordered one! Heat added!

Wow, where did you find that? Sounds like a sweet deal to me given this price...

Yh please do tell where you bought the view sonic from
i got a viewsonice for 200 quid too.
in my dreams...
Is 2.3kg light for a "super slim" laptop? I like the slim design but was expecting it to be a little lighter seeing as my standard chunky as hell 15.6 is 2.6kg
An awful lot of hardware for the money. The specification was the mutts nutts 18 months-2 years ago for an ultra portable that usually had either an 11.6" or 13.3" screen. The fact that this has got a 15.6" screen inevitably makes it less portable in terms of size and weight and is probably the reason why it is so cheap.

Personally, if i was going for a 15.6" screen, i'd opt for something with more processing muscle. If i wanted something highly portable for browsing, watching HD videos etc then a 13.3" or 11.6" screen size is the way to go. Mmmmml that price is still mighty tempting though. Not voted either way on this one.

a bit? takes me 18 mins/win7 15 mins/XP from switching on to booting into a fully updated desktop, i'd call that a lot faster
The words "Crap CPU" are insufficient here.
Doesn't matter how thin it is, or anything else positive. With a CPU as bad as this.....Im astonished anyone is dumb enough to vote it hot.
