I'm thinking of ordering one now, it's around the same price as the samsung nc10 (I used to own one) but it has a longer battey life and a newer processor.

rob, thanks for the link!

heat added good price, awesome battery life it is true

maybe, but just maybe that you can take them with you everywhere without having to take a 3 to 4 kg "portable computer"

Wow, that's 2 threads this morning I've found whatsThePoint trolling in.

"Who wants a netbook anyway?" in this thread and "Who wants to save £28 on a refurb iPod" in the refurb iPod thread.

Well, the answer to both of the above questions is quite a lot of people who read HotUkDeals! Just because a deal isn't for you, doesn't make it a bad deal - please try and be a little more constructive.

A lot of places selling at this price or under:
lambda-tek.com/com…179
Not what I'd call A "Hot Deal"

£250 _ £260 ;o) now that would be hot!

Whilst I agree with the sentiment, I also agree with what WTP says.

the entire point of netbooks was small, cheap, basic, ultraportable laptops.

The newer ranges, such as this one and NC10 and the like, have completely lost sight of the "cheap" aspect, and indeed cost more than more powerful "standard" laptops.

Yes, there is still the ultraportability - but that really is it, and being both a netbook and standard laptop owner, let me assure you that unless you travel for several hours a day carrying the thing, the difference is negligible.

Not cold or trolling, but more expensive netbooks to me are really losing their appeal, and are no longer netbooks but relatively expensive, but small, laptops.

then kill everyone with an iphone.... hahaha

sorry but your way of thinking doesn't convince me. If you need a calculator this is overkill, if you need to encode video this doesn't have enough juice... but, believe it or not, for some people this has enough processor power, a big enough screen and keyboard and it's light enough to carry it everywhere.

My main use of a netbook is for writing documents while I'm travelling, a full 15" laptop is quite big and heavy for me and has lots of things that I never use (such a dvd drive).

I do totally understand that, and appreciate that my way of thinking is only an opinion. Clearly the requirement here is one of basic computer use.

However, my point really is thus. If you only want the billy basic computer, as you describe, why spend £300, when (for example) the Acer netbook is currently about at £150?

If you want a higher end model, then why not get a standard laptop, at the same price, with a lot more power? OK - this power may not be required - but in effect its free compared to this!

To me - at this price point - these netbooks are kind of the worst of both worlds. Lack of power, and not particularly cheap, therefore neither winning over standard laptop owners, or netbook users.

Very good piece of kit - lightyears ahead of the NC10 in terms of battery life, Wireless N, etc.
Highly recommended.

Voted hot, great deal

To be fair the battery life on the acer is really poor compared to this. This is one of the main draws of a netbook for me, my current laptop struggles to make 2 hours, and I am away from the charger alot of the time. The weight would also be a big plus, I hate having to lug my laptop in to uni, whereas with a netbook I probably wouldn't notice. I think they are still slightly too expensive , 250 or less seems more reasonable for a machine with this spec. Still I may opt for one, going to be travelling alot later this year and a laptop would be a burden compared to a machine of this size.

£150 for a better battery? :? It only costs around £30 to get a better battery for the Acer. The Samsung is nice, but where's the Linux option? That would bring the price down significantly, I would imagine.

My mum bought the AA1 and, I have to say, I'm quite impressed. I got fed up with the preinstalled Linux (too simple, and difficult to modify) and put Linux Mint on instead - excellent move methinks! I think it's an Ubuntu derivative, but it's even easier to use. Surprised at how snappy these netbooks are considering the hardware they have. Still, I wouldn't fancy slapping Vista on.:roll:

And who are you to recommended this to anyone?



And who are you to say I (like everyone else on this forum) can't?

So what you've saying is either you've tried every model of netbook … So what you've saying is either you've tried every model of netbook compairing their features and ran similar tests on all with this one coming out well above all the others?or more likely you've bought one and have limited knowledge of all the others but if you bought one so should everyone else to make you fell better, in which case your recommendation is worth 0



What a ridiculous statement. That's like saying you can't recommend a restaurant to someone because you haven't been to every single one in the country. If he has had a good experience with a product he has every right to recommend it, its one of the reasons why this site is so popular.

Enough arguing

Your points have been made and there is nothing to be gained ny continuing this argument as it is beginning to ruin this thread.

Thanks

these smaller units have other purposes. I run my works wireless network & doing surveys with a heavy laptop takes a toll omn your arms & you have to stop every couple of hours to charge up. with my 1000HE I can do the whole site in 1 day without the need to charge or wrest the arms.

well, I ordered one... now waiting to get it delivered (hopefully on friday).

Heat and rep from me, good price.

It's a credit to this machine that it's come from -78 degrees when I first saw it to now be in the positive numbers.

Considering that no one has posted that it's cheaper elsewhere, that means there's at least 78 voters out there that have left negative for absolutely no reason...before a lot of people who know what they're talking about have noticed and rejuvenated the deal.

Yes... I'm sure evensome people vote cold just because it's white

I'm sad to say this (because I just bought one) but expect the price to fall down about £60, since it's sold in the US for $370 (around £230).

Anyway it's a great netbook. It has some utilities to disable the bluetooth, wifi and webcam hardware (so it doesn't consume any power).

Price now reduced to £289.97
