Yeh, I read that you can't upgrade the RAM, a shame, because it's something I'm going to do when I get my mitts on my Sammy! The Laptopmag link (2nd one) is very thorough and says you get a lot of bundled-in free software. Not sure how useful the programs are, though.

They really don't seem to like the keyboard, which is their main gripe with it.

Looks like its sold out,

****** used a discount code and got it for £112, they have emailed asking for the extra £40 odd can they do this ?>

I hunted high and low for thebigdiscountstore codes and couldn't find any (re me ordering the Samsung N130!)..the courier tried yesterday, missed him, and it came today.

BUT..the box had B-GRADE stamped all over it! Remember all these netbooks quite clearly state "New, In Box" so I phoned the customer line (at least it's an 0800 one, a rarity nowadays). The customer service guy couldn't have been nicer. They said as it's a bank holiday they'll try to arrange a brand new replacement, but can't do anything until Monday.

When I switch it on the N130 asks me if I want to Restore or Repair, so I assume it's had a hard disk replaced or something. Looks gorgeous though, was dying to fill it full of my bumpf!

Perhaps mine is just one that slipped through the net, I hope so!

The items inside were pristine and I couldn't help feeling a bit miffed, but again, they were perfectly nice about it.

As far as your discount code deanos, sounds like they're onto you..and I suppose retailers can allow codes at their discretion. At least they let you know, unlike Littlewoods who famously sneakily take the money back months later without any mention! Now THAT is out of order.

Yeah i couldn't believe it when it worked that's why i didn't say anything yesterday in case they got flooded with orders, the code stopped working now, i will just not contact them it may slip though if im lucky :thumbsup:

The code gave 25% off and free shipping

BTW did you get a dispatch email at all, and what does it say in your account order history under status mine just says "PAID"

EDIT: Just checked and my credit card limit has gone down £112 but the transaction is not showing

I paid through paypal but still got a despatch email. It says "Shipped" on my Order History, can't remember how it looked before then, I just watch emails instead!

Money has now come off my credit card

Order now vanished from there system not showing at all, bummer

Well i presume the order has vanished because they have cancelled it, will wait a few day to see if a refund is showing then ring them

These are back in stock by the looks of things, so not expired!

Might well be the one earmarked for Deanos :?

I've found when things like this are in stock, it's usually very little.
