Have a look on YouTube. HD plays perfectly.

£299 seems a lot when it's already outdated: it has DDR2 Ram and doesn't have the new Wireless N. If I were to spend £299 on a netbook I'd spend the same on a Toshiba Netbook - I have the T110-121 which I bought at £299 in August, has DDR3 ram, Wireless N, outputs Full 1080P to my TV, and fingerprint reader and the battery goes and goes (I can use it for 10 hours when charged, using internet and/or watch movies etc). There are also some Asus models (esp Eee PC 1215N) which look pretty good so if you can wait for the price to come down to around the £300 barrier, I'd do that.

Whilst a comparable processor the rest of the spec on them is well down on the Lenovo.

Yes just about as slow as every other single core Atom based netbook, but whats your point?

Well I'm voting hot. When you think a equal spec Acer revo R3600 will set you back £250 then this has a sub-notebook screen and a 6 cell battery added it seems not bad value at all.

The eee pc is a good choice but the Toshiba is not - the ion mobs the floor with the intel rubbish although the processor is probably better.

Bigger, which most people don't want - 11.6" seems to be the max netbook size. Rubbish graphics, ion will mop the floor with it.
And it's an Acer - will break down horribly very quickly.

HP 311c is probably the best choice - or the Asus once prices come down.

i love how in the same post you've posted 'mob' the floor and 'mop'

single core say no more

Single core is fine for everyday use.

In netbook terms, people should not worry too much what Atom is inside. In general, there is little difference between any of the single core Atoms. Obviously, duel core models are better than single cores.
As for the price, what do you het extra. Well for £299 you get 2GB of ram (which is immediatly better than any netbooks left crawling along with 1GB - as many ship like that) and a 250GB disk, which again is bumped from many models that come only with a 160GB disk.
In addition, it has ION, which takes the netbook from having crippled garbabe GFX that choke on anything useful, to something rather better.
The ION will allow light gaming and application use, at which most Atom / Intel based gfx units fail miserably at. And its a 12" screen.

Overall, not a bad deal. My one query would be that at £300, you stray into areas where hunting round can get you better gear, and its right at the limit of acceptable cost for netbook CPU gear. The atom CPU really is budget, and is a severe limit in terms of any chunky processing.

I think the right price for this gear is £250ish.
