Just reserved one of these as last one left locally, still looking around at reviews but seems a fairly decent spec for a portable 12" semi netbook.
Seems though to be let down by battery life of around 4 hours max probably due to graphics and screen size compared to normal 10" net books.

Can be bought for £30 less on Argos ebay outlet but that is a refurb model

Comes with full Win 7 not just the starter edition

Think at this kind of money I would go with the new Lenovo S205.

The Mv-40 is pretty slow and power hungry by todays standards and the X1250 is not ideal for today usage requirements.

buy from the ebay outlet if you want one of these,odds on it will be new anyway(most are) and 12 months warranty is the same.

get the Asus 12'' for £238.99 from Aus-Laptop.co.uk

Really good!

I thought these had a HD3200?
The pink one doesnt say which card though: argos.co.uk/sta…htm

I think its an alright deal for the money, havent seen anything that beats it (the lenovo recommended is about 40 quid dearer)
