Ordered one.

Still too expensive IMO, when they hit the £200 mark that will be a good deal but until that happens your better of with either a regular netbook or an iPad.

There's now about 6 of these, for £297, with the specs:
Inspiron 1090 : Intel N550 Dual Core(1.5Ghz,2x512K L2 Cache)(WLAN Only)
Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium (64 BIT)
Intel N550 Dual Core(1.5GHz,2x512K L2 Cache)
250G Hard Drive
Memory : 2048MB (1x2048) 1333MHz DDR3 Dual Channel.

Personally I'd prefer one of these to an iPad, but that's up to the individual of course.

these were cheaper last week, when they were offering free delivery on this model only, I picked up a 2gb, 320gb Model for £270, (retails at £479 on Dell website) which is getting delivered tomorrow.... told my mate, who decided he wanted one, so picked up a scratch and dent one 2gb, 250gb for him which was only £250...

Just saw this, and forgive me if this is obvious but what does refurbished mean when buying this kind of thing?
My son's been saving pocket money for 6 months to buy one of these and will have enough by about August but just wondering if this is a better option than full price/new. I've seen them online for about £380. Also, will these come down in price more by August do you think of is this a one time offer?

Thanks :-)

In my experience if they are listed as refurbished they have been pretty much as new. Listed as "Scratch and Dent" often has more marks on the case. They come with the same warranty as new, so that's better than a lot of the 3 month refurbs on ebay. These units come and go all the time - there's no guarantee about what will be available on the outlet at any time. No doubt prices will come down in the future, but I'd be surprised if the new price is a lot lower by August. They certainly seem to sell for more than this en ebay.
