No, they don't have dvd/cd drives. You either need an external USB disk drive or transfer the cd onto a usb memory stick. Third option is to use another laptop or desktop with internet access to download the drivers again onto a memory stick.

super thanks, repped

3.5 hours battery life - so it's the basic battery then.

If I had not already ordered a Dell Mini 10 I would of gone for this (which I should of got already but has been delayed until November 9th).

Good find Rep + Heat added.

Cant seem to find any details about the 2 years warranty and carry case, can someone poiint me in the right direction please?
but still a very hot deal, thanks op

I am torn between this and the nc10, the battery life on this one is slightly offputting

From one of the reviews on argos website

"I bought this notebook for my daughters eighth birthday. It's got an edge to edge keyboard, good size screen, great for web surfing, word processing and playing internet games. My daughter uses it almost everyday, the battery lasts up to 2.5 hours and it comes with a zipped matching sleeve. The only thing we don't like about it is the way the speakers sound; it’s quite low and somewhat squeaky, I suppose that’s expected from a small notebook. Over all it’s a great product I bought it after a lot of research and reading reviews and the great thing about it is that it’s got a two year warranty. If you’re thinking of buying this product, don’t hesitate, buy it."

These are an excellent netbook i bought the higher spec model in January higher power batteries are cheap as chips on ebay too :thumbsup: heat added

In any case very rarely will you need to install ANYTHING to do with setting up your broadband. The CDs your ISP might send you are just full of junk. You only need to install anything if you still use a USB modem.

For other purposes USB DVD drives are dirt cheap :thumbsup:

It doesnt say anything about 2 years warranty or am I missing something? I have reserved one anyway and will collect if it comes with warranty.Thanks OP heat added.

cheers op reserved 1 to collect

Lots of problems with this model, check out the MSI Wind forums. Better to splash out the extra £30 and get an alternative netbook such as the Eee 1005HA, which has a much better battery in any case (getting 7hours+ from mine)

The 2 yr guaruntee is in the flyer in Argos, it says free 2 yr guaruntee the flyer is called "Mobile and Laptop Price Update" its quite pink, and is at the front of the store with catalogues etc

So has mine!! :x

Excellent netbook for the money.


BUT

Mine is plugged in and used in the living room as a download station/browser/poker playing workhorse so battery for the most part is irrelevant to me.

Ultimately the battery life is not too good. 3.5 hrs it is not..
6/9 cell battereis are available at an expense.

As a home netbook, brilliant, I simply cannot fault it. - IF I were to use it out and about it would probably annoy me a little.

when i got this email yesterday i misread it as a wind up laptop

You can download it fromt eh microsoft website or use something like open office (which is free)

If you have another PC around on your network the easiest thing to do is shared your DVD drive on your main PC, pop the disk in their and then browse on your laptop over the network to that shared DVD drive. Install as normal etc.

Job done.

reserved and will be picked up tomorrow unless anyone can show me something better for not a penny over 200 notes - ta OP

Still...only 3.5hrs battery life? Poor...

[FONT=Verdana]Good deal for this model of netbook - note that there is a very large and well established user community for the MSI netbooks and they're clones (guides, reviews, support, etc) & the link is listed below.

Indeed. If you can speak foreign, you can also refer to these communities:

msi-wind.de/ German
msiwind.es Spanish

The French site is also down for maintenance at the moment. There are quite a few others.

This is the model along with the Dell Mini 9 that you will be wanting if you are intending to run Mac OS X, as most if not all of the other netbooks have one problem or another with unsupported components.

Dont forget £189.99 on line if you are an Energyplus argos user (Southern Electric customers) or by the vouchers and get it for £179.99 :w00t:

Sweet Deal, picked myself up one tonight when i got it home noticed it was wireless N as well so made it even sweeter for me as i thought i was only b/g

Great deal, thanks to OP but I can't seem to get the wireless working. Is there a switch to activate or turn on the mini card? at present it doesn't find any wireless networks. Any help welcomed.

Ooops, just managed to find out that Fn F11 activates the wireless. Hopes that helps someone.

Thanks. I looked at one of the netbooks linked that was 8gb hd for £115. But if I can get the Wind for 200 with the larger hd and 2 year warranty, I'll go for the Wind (warranty is the deal maker)
