or an a1 refurb acer 150 for £189:

I prefer the main brands but thats just me!

actually thinking about it. this is a stonking battery life!

streight from the manual:

only thing i'd be wary about is the ZIF HARD DRIVE! (they're not very common outside of mp3 players, like the ipod)

the rest of it looks pretty good

Hi all,

Just checking if someone already bought one and what their conclusions are? I had a look at some French sites and seemingly the reviews are actually quite good (screen gets really good mention). The only minor negative is the HD that is a bit on the slow side.
The charger is pretty "light weight" but this also means it takes ages to recharge the battery.

Debating whether to buy a refurbished Acer Aspire One 150 (9 inch, 1GB and 120GB) with a 3 cell battery pack at £163 or this machine at £200?

Any suggestions?
Many thanks in advance,
Kind regards

Greg

I bought one just before dropping my daughter off at school.

I got the first one and a lady got the second straight after - the store only had three.

I'm charging it up. It was at 68% after an hour - did'nt notice what it started at.

The screen is very clear in a normal room with normal office lighting.

The power cord is like a 'phone one, a bit spindly.

First power up takes circa 2 mins to get to setup screen.

Subsequent power up was 30-odd seconds.

At 91% now - so it does take a little time to charge up.

I love this machine - the battery lasts well.owned.

This is the first netbook that I've
Keyboard on the small side for my mitts - but evrything else great.

I did'nt get a restore CD - did anyone else?

yup, im also wondering how the hell do you restore this machine as NO RESTORE ARE INCLUDED, and no partition on hd to restore either, am i missing something ?, what happens if hd or os fails and wanna restore ?

My cooling fan making wild noises too. That and the nil battery life after a great 2 years means I'm looking for new as I can't find a spare battery.
