Opening this Saturday in Glasgow Forge retail park, saw today some of the opening offers advertised in the window. Including this 7 inch minibook, it's not a big name brand but it's ideal for a young kid's Christmas, i'm getting one for my 11 year old.

Whilst there may be hugely powerful laptops out there - you could be paying way over the odds for a lot of functionality that you will never benefit from. This lightweight, low-cost laptop does exactly as it says. There are very few if any laptops that match the minibook mini laptop for value; it''s the perfect micro laptop for surfing the web and undertaking word processing tasks on the move - or even if you just want to save space. One thing you instantly notice about this mini laptop is its size and weight; it is an excellent travel companion as well as perfect PC for carrying around the house. The outer casing has an attractive piano-black finish, the keyboard is tactile, the mouse pad easy to use and the 7-inch digital screen provides a perfectly clear image. If you want a laptop for powerful performance, such as for gaming or movie editing, we could recommend a long list of brands. But this is not what this mini laptop is about; its about being compact, lightweight, well-built, functional and fantastic value for money. If youre looking for these features, then there are no rivals to the mini-book.

its advertised in their Xmas flyer and emails going out nationwide.

It's seems to be the lowest price for the product and for that reason I'll vote hote.

It's going to be so bad to use, though. The laptop looks to have been discontinued - it's outdated and nobody else has stock of it. I'd strongly recommend you pay a bit more and either buy a refurbed laptop or a netbook from a manufacturer that's well known.

Yes, understandable but for a childs first laptop, it will surfice

Banned

Even for a netbook this is a terrible spec, spend extra and get something usable!

this isnt worth 139.99 of anyones money, think about what you're actually getting for your money here...

I cant see any child willingly using this for more than 5 minutes

Far better off with the £175-200 (depending on offers) HP mininote or Acer Aspire One.

This, I'm afraid, is a POS!
