Was looking at the hot Acer Aspire deal rocketing, then found this for over £10 cheaper and a better CPU I think...(correction, think it is a single core :-( )

And a darn sight easier to upgrade the memory:…KKY

Here's the speel from the website:
The Packard Bell Dot S2 UK/002 comes powered by the Intel® Atom™ Processor N450 and has the Genuine Windows® 7 Starter operating system installed. This netbook has 1GB of RAM and a useful 250GB hard drive.

Ultra-portable at 1.25 kg, the slim, affordable Dot S2 delivers fully-featured mobile computing, offering a remarkable battery life of up to seven and a half hours. It packs a lot into its sleek frame, with a 10.1" 1024 x 600 resolution screen, webcam, full keyboard and multi-gesture touchpad accompanied by full 802.11 b/g/n wireless capability, three USB ports and a VGA outlet, along with a 5-in-1 card reader and Dolby Sound Room technology.

Provided with an attractive and handy protection pouch, as well as a generous set of software including the full version of Adobe Photoshop Elements, the Packard Bell Dot S2 UK/002 is truly mobile computing at a reasonable price!

Took one of these round Thailand with me for many months. Great piece of kit,solid build and stood up to everything I threw at it.Worked no problem in the extreme heat.Seems a great price to me and I would definitely recommend.
Whoops - I missed that also - the Acer is 2 core; therefore Acer definitely better. Better memory and hdmi out also.
