If you can afford to spend ~£170, I'm sure you can wait and spend an extra £20 for the Aspire one.

Only the stupidest people on earth would buy this - no offence but I mean come on!!!

The Elonex is **** compared to the rest, for startes it uses an obsoulete 300mhz processor which couldnt even run windows xp and has less memory than your average digital camera...

You get what you pay for with netbooks

Lots of reasons, but for a start this machine is £149 at ]ebuyer so the difference is £40.

Anyway the reasons:

The acer does have the better keyboard and higher resolution screen but it shows up fingerprints on the case, has a one year warranty (which is invalidated if you upgrade the memory) and poor speakers.

The eee on the other hand has a better touchpad, better speakers, a two year warranty (which isn't invalidated if you upgrade the memory), a smaller size (about an inch shorter) and is £40 cheaper, which would let you add bluetooth and an SDHC card for extra storage should you want to.

Both have about two hour's battery life.

Sorry to seem rude, but this is not a helpful post.

Firstly, the link you have given is to a machine costing £175. The price you quote is ex VAT.

Secondly, and more importantly, the Acer is much better specified, e.g has an 8.9" screen, rather than the 7" in the Eee you have linked to. The Acer also has an 8GB drive rather than 4Gb.

Taken together, the price difference of £25 is nothing, especiually if you can make that difference smaller by using Quidco and a voucher at PCWorld.

Thank you, someone with some sense! Also you forget that the Acer has 2 card readers rather then just one, and one of them is a memory card expansion which means you can actually expand the 8GB built-in and it will come up as a single hard drive. And don't forget tha 1.6GHz atom processor, which is way better than the Celeron ****.

Sure the Asus was good at one point but the competition is now just better.

Come on own up - who actually bought this????

Sorry, I didn't realise ebuyer had started quoting prices excluding VAT.

The acer is 'better specified' but you don't buy these machines for their specifications. For the same price you can get a refurbished 15" laptop that has four times the screen area and is several times faster which would make both look like terrible deals if your were judging on specification alone.

Some people (including you obviously) will prefer the acer but I was just pointing out that it doesn't excel in all areas and some people may prefer this machine.

Um, have you actually looked at any benchmarks? The Atom is about the same speed as the Celeron M, faster in some circumstances but slower in others.

EDIT: Oh yes, the acer also has a glossy screen so it will be more reflective than the matt one on the eee.
