One with a 7" screen?
Seems like a tidy price to me.

This looks like a good deal compared to the eepc

Looks a stonker to me,

this has a 30gb hard drive, the EEpc for the same sort of money only has an 8gb one or SD card?

This deel is nice and toastie!

*XxgunnerxX*

It 'probably' has a via cpu.....not what you want really. i doubt it will even match the 900mhz cpu in an eee 701.

Seems excellent with XP (instead of Linux) & a 30Gb hard drive.

Pointless comparing the CPUs for these type of systems :roll:. Because of XP, this will do more than the EEE 701 & the storage is almost 10x more :thumbsup:

nice one

How comes this is -26 but nearly every coment is a positive is whoever is voting cold going to explain why?

OK I'm officially confused!

This was put up two months ago at £199 +P&P and reached 240 degrees. Now it's £20 cheaper it's been in negative territory ever since I put it up.

It's an ultra portable, 30GB hard drive with Windows and built in wifi. Would those who have voted cold please tell me why it is such a bad deal?

Cheers.

pointless? nah. the eee is a little sluggish loading up xp. I can only imagine the time it would take this thing with it needing to spin up a hdd, and a slower cpu. Would drive me up the wall. My gf's eee is only just bearable.

And this is the main downside of having a HDD and XP on a netbook - my Acer Aspire One starts from cold in about 15 seconds and is online about 10 seconds after that. Who needs 30gb hard drive to surf the net?

voted hot, as i think its quite a good price.

People are probably voting cold as they think it's a poor spec laptop and not a netbook!
