I'm putting this on as a deal based on the prices of other Asus EEE 1008HA netbooks that were listed.

Can anyone tell me if this is a good deal?

Taken from CPW:
"Hand picked for ultra-portability - Asus Eee PC 1008 netbook

The Asus 1008HA is a slender Eee PC netbook packed with loads of handy features.. It's easy to use, stylish and affordable.

This slim Windows® 7 machine is nicknamed 'the Seashell' because of its lightweight, curved body.

An energy efficient Intel® Atom processor boosts performance without adding to the weight of your netbook. It also enhances the WiFi internet connection, so you can visit websites, update your Facebook status, stream video clips or chat with friends over instant messenger.

Make your IM chats even better with live voice and video thanks to the integrated 1.3 Megapixel webcam; which can also be used to start video conferencing with multiple contacts. Typing messages and emails is easy too with the comfy keyboard, which sports large, flat keys.

Take your netbook with you to stay entertained whilst travelling. There's plenty of space for media and documents on its 160GB hard disk drive, and the eco-friendly Super Hybrid Engine gives five hours of unplugged battery life. That's plenty of time to watch a movie on the bright, 10.1 inch screen.

The bright, LED backlit display has been enhanced with colour-shine technology and makes videos look really vivid. A pair of high-quality stereo speakers enhance your audio experience and make sharing music with friends really fun.

This ultra-slim, machine, weighing a mere 1.3kg, will impress you with its affordable price tag and long list of handy features, which include an integrated card reader and Bluetooth 2.1."

This has 250Gb hard drive based on the specs, which conflicts with the wording where it says only 160Gb... Am guessing it's 250Gb?

I would hope so, else CPW are big fat liars!

Edit: if you go via the Offers link on the CPW site, it says this is £279, yet when you click to view it, it says £229! Bit risky perhaps?

The one I got from here simplyasus.com/Asu…tml for £199 when it was on special - This one was 160gb so I will be very suprised if carphone warehouse is more

And your one has XP rather than Win7 starter. I'm so tempted by this but the specs do seem a little contradictory!

Got mine from there too, service was good as well.

Got to say they are cracking little machines, so would recommend.

Are they any good? Hows the battery life compare to manufacturers quoted time?

This is a good price, £30 more for windows 7 and bigger hardrive.

These are good and you get about 4 hours use in the real world, but they are extremely difficult to upgrade the RAM or change the battery.

Bought this,
i can confirm it is 250gb and Windows 7 Starter
a nice birthday present its made for my mum
