Netbooks are very useful for internet access whilst on holiday & a very very cheap one like this should be ideal for the purpose -it does the job & is not a major financial disaster if it gets dropped or stolen.

jaydeeuk1

Never a good sign of customer service knowledge! I have XP, with the resize utility and overclocking program, works fine, possibly the most useful gadget I've ever bought. The Atom processors are over rated, not as fast as my celery which can run at over 1.00ghz. Only time I'll upgrade is when the ion platform is released. My old eee 701 will become a carputer then!

listerdude

Tempted by that idea but having never setup a NAS before I'm a bit concerned that it might end up being to complex to configure.

paddy.stone

Good for a mid-high spec lappy, but can't justify the price to buy one - I game occassionally and even less while actually on the go, so for me I'd rather get a quad core small form factor pc or even a full desktop PC for this price. [edit] Just making it clear here, I am NOT slating the laptop, it looks like a decent machine... but for the money would rather have a great desktop machine is all :)

Computerman

well im looking at gaming laptops for a mate and this is the best i can find that offeres decent performance from a reliable manufacturer, and within the £750 budget for uni and gaming. not quite portable for uni tho but i dont think he cares lol.

rg2005

its average because the price is nothing special bit expensive if u ask me, i would prefer a better processor for that money, and on the dell website plenty of their laptops come with a better processor for similar price albeit no blu ray on some and diff screen size, and now most of their laptops come with a maximum of 8gb ram, these prices are with no voucher code added even then those prices are steep on novatech for similar price a laptop with 15 inch screen but slightly better graphics can be got i would rather wait for something a bit cheaper tbh, however the ram is impressive

:thinking:Everyone that boughht this netbook check the size of the hard drive, mine only came with a 4gb ssd, is advertised as having 12gb ssd hard drive!

EndlessWaves

I think you were just unlucky, I've not noticed any of that on my 701 and I use it to listed to Radio 7 over iPlayer so it would be very noticible if it was stuttering - I know since that's exactly what it did when I bungled a flash upgrade.

stu83

For an extra 20 quid on the same site consider the Asus 904 which has much better battery life and 80gb storage. I've not owned either of these but I had the original Asus eee 701 and it was perfect except for the 7inch screen, so I shouldnt think these are bad.

abomination

Not a bad machine if battery life isn't your biggest concern though having owned this particular model I can confirm that it does suffer from the battery drain issue mentioned earlier, you could just pull the battery out when you're finished. If the CPU is running properly and not under clocked it's more than capable. Beware of the 16GB single SSD cousin that's pretty bad however. The 900A is quite different considering it's Atom based. The 901 (which I swapped my 900 for in the end) is an entirely different beast, vastly superior when it comes to battery life and a few other extras thrown in.

Adamo

I owned the 900 for a fair while and put XP on it myself, no real issues that I remember - battery life was alright, it was speedy enough and, well, it was decent whilst travelling!

The 3 network dongle I had for about 6 months hardly ever got a very good reception, most of the time it was quite slow or the connection dropped at different times of the day. Im now using a vodafone one which im using in the same places and always get a fast 3g signal, with the benefit of no expiry date on the credit. I dont know if the O2 dongle is unlocked (delivered tomorrow) or how good the signal is on O2, bought it purely as it was a bargain price at littlewoods and giving it as a gift.

FF99

Do you know for a fact that the dongles supplied by Littlewoods are locked ? It seems a lot of O2 stuff is supplied unlocked. Are these considered good quality compared e.g. to the '3' dongles also being given away for next to nothing at the moment ?

They were £ 100 more than that not so very long ago. A quick search on kelkoo or pricerunner will tell you whether £ 179 is the absolutely best price around at the moment. However, given that you can already buy Aspire Ones with a higher spec, the price of this one can only go south. It comes down to whether you want now what you get for your money. Or whether you'd prefer something with a higher spec, for more. Or wait until this one comes down. Or wait until the higher spec one drops to £ 179. Or ...:roll:

No. Not if you put it on a suitable surface so the cooling can work properly. I've had one for some time now and heat is not an issue.

Cuddy

[size=3]Upgrading RAM[/SIZE] Currently, all available models of the Acer Aspire (regardless of colour, HDD/SSD, 512Mb/1Gb RAM) have 512Mb hard-soldered on to the motherboard with only one available DDR2 SO-DIMM slot. There is a limit of 1Gb in that slot and so that means you can only have a maximum of 1.5Gb of total RAM. With the 1Gb Aspires, there is already a 512MB stick present in the slot and so you would waste a 512Mb stick in order to replace it with 1Gb one. [SIZE="1"]Some say that it's possible to put a 2Gb stick in the slot and just end up with 2Gb total rather than 2.5Gb. However, others say that this is not possible due to a limitation Acer has put on the BIOS that they supply, which results in non-booting. The Intel chipset in use would normally support 2Gb but it is Acer that have blocked us users from being able to do so. If anyone has any links showing that a 2Gb stick does actually work and the AAOne can boot then please feel free to share the link (^_^)[/SIZE] [size=3]Add more disk space with SSD models[/SIZE] The SSD drive present in all Aspire Ones are 1.8inch IDE form factor and so can ony be upgraded with another SSD or normal HDD of the 1.8inch variety. The more common size is the 2.5inch and this will NOT physically fit inside the case of the Aspire One. [SIZE="3"]Add more disk space with HDD models[/SIZE] In the HDD models, the drive in use is a standard 2.5inch SATA type, much like those used in modern day notebooks and even the PS3. The underside of the casing on these models is different in that there is a *very* slight bulge in order to accomodate the slightly larger form factor. You can replace the drive with another 2.5inch SATA HDD drive of larger capacity or go for an aftermarket SSD if you want to spend as much (or more) on that than you did on the Aspire one itself :-D [size=3]How easy is it to do any of the above?[/SIZE] Not very. There are no easy to access compartments underneath the Aspire One to upgrade either the RAM or the HDD/SSD. If you want an idea of how far you need to go to do anything inside the Aspire One then have a quick scroll through this... http://www.aspireoneuser.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=2673 [size=3]The other method of adding more disk space[/SIZE] The Aspire One has two Secure-Digital slots, one on the left hand side and one on the right. The one on the left can be used to expand the storage already present on the Aspire One, regardless of whether it's the SSD or the HDD model. Insert an SD card into that slot and the available space will be combined with what's already available. Eg your SSD is down to 4Gb free and you added a 16Gb empty SDHC card. Your total available space then jumps up to 20Gb! I haven't actually used this feature myself yet so I can't say for sure how the OS decided where the files should go first, fill up the SSD/HDD first and then overflow to the SDHC or some kind of mix. :stocking::santa::gift:

Baz8755

I don't think they're a fly by night company as I bought my laptop from them around 5 years ago. Excellent service as they even did a pre-delivery check to ensure fully functioning with no dead pixels. So if they go under I don't think it will be an intententional scam

Yeah, that's my understanding too, with the N120 also having a sub-woofer!!. Other than that (and a bit of slick styling) the battery life seems to be the only significant difference between the N110 and NC10. Still perhaps it'll mean some NC10 bargains soon...

SPARTAN086.Mike

Can't believe this got voted cold, for the spec this is THE BEST value gaming laptop around at the moment, Turbo mode is pretty nice too, so you effectively get a 2.9GHZ C2D when plugged in. I'm struggling to find this model in stock anywhere at the moment, there is another model with a Q9000 Quad Core and Full HD screen but I'm trying to get the P9500 version :(.

Quicklite

2.5 hours+ battery, cos it uses Intel's 25w P series CPU. This is the UK version, which means screen res is merely 1680x1050. Display quality is average, not great for watching videos on, it also doesn't have full HD. I'd really expect 500GB@7200 rpm, as well as a second HDD slot for a laptop of this price.

This one is one of the best netbooks guys, its definetly worth 330, its got a chicklet apple style keyboard, very comfy apparently, very long battery life, slightly longer than NC10, the only thing thats a minus for me is that its slightly bigger than the usual netbooks. I am surprised ppl comparing this to H, H & HE are different, HE is new with redesigned hardware, new proc (although no great speed bump), new keyboard, much better battery life, this is selling like a hot cake right now in US, where it was released a few weeks ago. my two cents...

grumpyone

£280 was the price of a 1000H with XP, 160GB and 6 cell battery two months ago! before ASUS and Samsung etc realise they could really start fleecing customers. According to http://www.laptopmag.com/review/laptops/asus-eee-pc-1000he.aspx?page=3 ... The new 1000HE scores just 50 points more on PCMark05 than the 1000H. Graphics performance was below average for the netbook category - despite using the latest N280 atom CPU, ASUS did not bother to put the new GN40 chipset in - but used the existing 945GSE one. OK I was a bit harsh on the abilities of netbooks - but when they start costing £330+, then you know you are being ripped off!!!!!!

just web browsing and a few basic office apps? And winamp, and VLC for divx and 720p HD files. And quite a few games. Where did you get the figure of £280?

I think its only this price as they are the first to offer a pre-order for it. Once its in the marketplace the price will settle to around the current 1000H price, I think its available stateside for $349 so its not a premium netbook (ALA S101 etc).

kasiopc

I totally agree with you, and I haven't bought one because they are too expensive. But I still want one for the "wow" factor. Guess I'll be sticking with the desktop.

and If you don't like refurbs - don't post about them - or at least don't post your ignorance about them... Your droning about "learning the long and hard way from being messed around over many years, watching others being messed around and that now money is not so easy to come by, I consider it a great virtue" applies as much to brand-new goods as it does to refurbs or anything else for that matter. The FACT is that the same consumer laws apply to refurbs - you still have the DSR to evaluate the goods - you still have the SoGA to return goods under too - the 'warranty' being less than 12 months means nothing at all. The ONLY difference is that refurbs you should expect a degree of cosmetic 'harm' in terms of scratches etc. - don't get into thinking they'll be 'mint' and you'll be fine (they're cheaper for a reason and all that) - and even then the DSR allows you to return something which isn't as good as you'd like it to be - I'm failing to see the big issue In fact "now money is not so easy to come by, I consider it a great virtue" SHOULD mean you're keener on refurbs than new goods - after all they often mean items for VASTLY less cash!!?? In the case of the HP Laptops which BigPockets was selling as refurbs recently, they still have upto 12 months manufacturers collect-and-return warranty left (3 years from new) So report me for 'abusing' you as many times as you like - you're still talking nonsense... p.s. I'm also sceptical of using the Internet to sound out 'bad sellers' because I could tell you a truly nasty horror story about every online retailer there is - Amazon, Play, Aria (I know dozens for them), Dabs, eBuyer - the list goes on - they ALL have their bad days and everyone has nightmares with people sooner or later. The problem with the Internet is that it's this big magnet/melting pot of WHINGERS and so the negatives build up and the positives (and let's be honest - people don't go out of their way to cheer as much as they do to moan!) get drowned out... All people have to do is buy things with their brains on and their eyes open - be a bit realistic - oh and ignore the over enthusiastic positives and all the naysaying negatives :)

Sykobabble

Good point well made!

nihcaj

Dead right I am fussy. Since when has fussy been a negative attribute? Fussy comes from learning the long and hard way from being messed around over many years, watching others being messed around and that now money is not so easy to come by, I consider it a great virtue, won by applying wisdom and experience too - I worked in the same open office as a Trading Standards department for a number of years, and they taught me much of what I know on top of my own professional experience of dealing with companies large and small! :thumbsup: It appears others have not been so fortunate as you. It is the one real improvement for buyers over the past 15+ years - with the Internet it is now so easy to check a company out - In the past everyone was on their own. If you don't take notice of the obvious signs of poorer dealers, such as dubious evasive descriptions or terms; or a plentiful track record of poor service, then that's up to you - I won't be the one complaining when things go wrong. There are plenty of other retailers around, and so what if it means missing a tiny saving in money, the real saving in GRIEF and HASSLE is worth a good amount of money to me.

im liking the q210 cos of the hdmi output

CLEPAU676

I own this, I have since Oct 07.. Its great, I recently cracked the screen which cost me £100 to replace but its a suberb bit of kit... The screen is nice and bright and has a good viewing range. The only downside is only having 2 usb ports which may or may not matter to you.. The glossy top also marks really easily.. The battery last about 4 hours under normal use with 2/3rds brightness with Wifi on.. I did invest in a second battery which cost me £40 from ebay which means its great even on long journeys.. This bad boy is fast too, often have IE, Powerpoint, Excel and Email all open at the same time no slow down at all.. I own an NC10 too and have to say that part of me just wishes I had bought a 3 rd battery for the Q45.... instead.. but I now just carry both units around with me when I travel.. HOWEVER i think you can buy the new q210 for about £500 (Staples Instore) which has the Nvicia 9200 and HDMI built in.. so if gaming is your thing might be worth the extra £70

Thanks Scottyboy but it's ok now. I took Linux off pronto and put XP on there and now it runs like a dream I love it! Have it switched on and on the net in under 60 seconds. At this price I would recommend getting one, a few mucky marks were easily cleaned off and it came with 12 month guarantee :thumbsup: BTW This deal hasnt expired it still seems to be available

Scotty.Boy

[FONT="Verdana"]You might want to consider reinstalling the operating system on the netbook and downloading the latest patches off of the Linux repositories on the internet (if you've not already done that) - I know this series has an integrated 10MB/100MB ethernet network card, so at least you can get it on the internet with a network cable connection...just an option for you to consider. Would it possible for you to take digital photos of the netbook so other members can get an idea of what state they potentially could be if they purchase them. PS - I'm assuming that the noise your hearing is the fan within the unit and if so you can get a BIOS update for it, to provide better fan management - if I remember correctly the integrated tools with the Linux distribution did not properly manage the fan usage but there was also a utility created over on the ASUS EEE User Community forum which also assisted with addressing that as well (think it had to have the BIOS updated though but could be wrong). Cheers, Scotty Boy! :thumbsup:[/FONT]

I ordered mine yesterday afternoon and it arrived today just after 4pm so impressed with delivery. On the otherhand I would not describe the netbook as "as new" its obviously been used and not just the once, it hadnt even been cleaned up and was covered in dirty marks! Have not yet been able to connect to my wireless router as it just says Pending when I try to connect. Ive checked the asuseee forum and this seems to be a common fault and I'm hoping to get it sorted otherwise my new eee is off back to laptopsdirect! It's also very noisy and took 5 minutes to shut down but maybe thats just me being too fussy!

Well still. You could get better specs for this price though.

BlackCloud

Quality brand, Thinkpads were IBM, Lenovo bought the brand name and continued to make them and now do their own designs and range. I currently have a lightweight titanium Z60t. Bit of a strange one this SL model though, quite big and heavy for a business machine. Thinkpads tend to have screens lacking in brightness, matt finish, good for documents but not so good for pictures or video. This model is obviously at the cheaper end, good price for a Thinkpad but not quite sure which bracket it fits in as you can get more bang for buck for the home market.

lmao at x12 blu ray writer obviously well informed:whistling:

curofone

As i have already pointed out the HP by itself at £770 is a bit rich for my liking but as Play are offering 5% at the moment (you can find the voucher in these forms in any play offer) which makes the machine 731.50 and during november hp is offering £100 cash back on certain machines over £600 this being one of them and therefore making this machine £631.50, £120 cheaper that sony machine. Factor in the £50 the you are saying to double the ram that makes it £170 cheaper. Might as well make them equal by adding a 80gb external HDD for the hp to make it fair so let say and that is still £140 cheaper The HP has a much better graphics card that the sony, and at this price point it is the graphics cards that really seperate the machine. I know that you are claiming that the Sony has a better processor but in the bench mark test that i have read the sonys processor actually comes out on top, not by much but still better. As for the blu ray writer as i pointed out they are still very over priced which makes this sony over priced for the other hardware that you get in but if you really did want a blu ray writer then you could always buy an external starting at £115 still making the HP machine cheaper and better simple due to the graphics card

zabbyh

There are some stupid people on this site, who just vote cold without even thinking... The HP you are talking about is £770, has less HDD space and does not include a Blu Ray writer (it does't matter about the writing speed of the Blu Ray (as it still will write DVDs/CDs faster) the main thing is it is a writer.. This is a laptop that is £1400 usually and is at this discount price.. Now concerning your statement about RAM, These guys have a double memory offer and you could easily get another 2GB for around £50. But lets not forget that a 32 bit OS only shows 3.3GB of RAM. So with this laptop you get an extra 80GB HDD space, a better processor, Bluetooth & Blu Ray Writer. But I have to say that the HP deal is a good deal, but this a Sony Vaio and comparing two different makes that are totally different compared to there build. I find HPs to be very bulky and my personal preference is a Vaio, but each to there own.

curofone

Didnt notice that but that alone is not worth an extra £120 especially when you consider the step up in graphics card you are getting in the hp and the extra 2gb or ram. Also i believe that the blu ray writer in the machine is a bit old already as it only burns at 2x and i read that you can get 12x writers, obviously they are going to cost a lot more but before i get a blu-ray burner i will wait at least a year until the price come down drastically but i guess the fact that it has the writer makes the price a bit more resoanable

It's not even the same range - L300 versus A120!

I thought that the review was usfeul because it tells you about the construction. The spec for this version is shown on the OP link...

nihcaj

It does need more RAM, but that review is old, and it is for an even more basic Satelllite pro A120 - a Celeron based machine, with even less RAM!

Needs a £20 RAM upgrade but gets good review here... http://www.pcpro.co.uk/reviews/94149/toshiba-satellite-pro-a120.html

Delivery is an extra £9.99, unless you add an 'extra item' to your basket to get free delivery. Making total price £659.96 As well as that cheaper here:thumbsup: ]http://www.saveonsamsung.com/Samsung_R560_441322.html

No I am not connected in anyway. In the same way as I am not connected to Amazon (one of my other posts). Having looked around they were both the cheapest I could find for instock items. You will need to add delivery onto the price for Dabs (£5.99), which is fine if you are in a rush, if your not then why not save the money

Voting tepid I'm afraid! An okay price, but it's the same price as other retailers i.e. Dabs.com, and only £5 cheaper than PCWorld where you can pick it up the same day rather than having to wait 10 days for delivery or pay large delivery fees. Ebuyer used to sell then for under £150 delivered, but are now out of stock (it's I believe a discountinued model). Just out of interest redding43, are you in anyway connected with LaptopsDirect as everyone of your posts seem to be about them, or do you just really love them as a retailer? Rufus.

nice to hear it as it was probably my post ;) this has 2gb, faster cpu (1.66ghz v 2.0ghz) and XP prof.I am not sure about camera too in the previous deal. I would contact Lenovo regarding the screen.I am sure they will not leave you alone ;)

Bad price, good laptop. I got a Lenovo N200 (T5450, GeForce Go 7300) for £320 in July. As far as I can tell the build quality is solid, but that's only based on two months of use. The screen is a bit off colour for me, not matter how much I try to calibrate it it always seems to give a slight blue tint (unless I put a different tint on) and increased saturation over my monitor, another annoyance is that the volume button can't be held, it has to be pressed repeatedly, which makes for slow volume changes if you use the buttons. Apart from that it is a very nice laptop though.

Txx, Xxx models are for business.. known in the old days as IBM Thinkpads. The Nxx models are targetted for non business use (=home use). The business models have higher quality components and can take quite a bit of bashing about. The more expensive T models (about 3 pricing points ranging from entry business, medium and high end business) have titanium steel chasis and the case is very rigid as a result...great for those business people who carries a laptop by its corner , either by the base or by the screen (ouch!!!) and walk along the office aisle. Likewise the N series have about 2/3 pricing points for design and durability, rather like Dells with the various brand names.

7777777

I had lenovo n100, I have got 2 Toshibas and I have worked on Compaqs and Dells as well ...although Dell's XPS is a good one, the cheaper Inspirons and Vostros are... just cheap laptops - poor screen, average keyboard and quality build.I don't say they are bad but definately not up to the Lenovo's standards. If someone does not see that , must be a Dell's owner or never worked on a good laptop. Sorry I do not want to offend anybody and I will consider Dell while upgrading.However, I will take Dell into account not because of quality but price only.

I agree completely. There are so many professions that have a use for these things...plumbers, electricians etc. The comments about buying 10 computers and recycling through them is stupid to say the least. Imagine having to transfer all your data from a broken laptop to a new one everytime you dropped a hammer on it or something similar. Doesn't make sense. This laptop is not meant for the general public. It was designed out of a need so there's no point comparing it or the price to your standard laptop. It specialist and the price reflects this.
