Doesnt state battery time I'm afraid. But having had a little look on the internet I am guessing this is the 'up to 8hrs' model. Would need to be confirmed of course.

Hot, even if 3 cell battery. Bad news for anyone wanting to sell an old netbook just now!

Arguably bad it has Windows 7 STARTER. Probably better off with XP.

it wont handle anything other than web browsing, and i doubt it will cope with flash websites too well either. But a good lil toy for your kids i suppose

good price heat added

We do get some chimps here - or am I being unkind to chimps? I can run a business of one of these when I need to. And enjoy a video afterwards. Admittedly no good for gaming or if you have vision of finger size issues.

Older games work well in these - such as Quake III, Serious Sam

I bought the N250P version from CPW a few weeks back and these are great little Netbooks. I just bought this one too. The online spec says the N150P also has 250 gb HD which I thought was a bit odd. The rest of the spec is the same as I have on the N250. I put W7 Ultimate on there and upped the RAM to 2GB. It was fine before but now it whizzes along- it has no limitations over a normal laptop that I can see. Hurry, they will be gone soon.

black one here

good price.

Argos give a full 12 months warranty on their refurbs as opposed to the 3 months that currys give so personally I would sooner buy one of those

Argos Ebay refrubs

Argos may have 12 months warranty but priced considerably more £209.99 + £3.99 del

Looks a good deal and 3 months should be long enough to see if it has any serious problems. Heat added, even though I wouldn't personally buy a reconned laptop from DSG group as others have advised you are just asking for trouble....

Bought this for my daughters birthday, She's gonna be well pleased, Many thanks op....

2gb Ram upgrade for these here. There is one slot currently with one 1gb stick in it ...£17.69 delivered

thanks once again for making me spend money lol!!! Just bought this for uni as having issues with current netbook (old) Dont know what people complain about, they are for small, portable use and not meant as a main laptop/desktop. Great for what they are designed for!

Under UK law, they effectively cant give less than 6 months warranty anyway.

And you use divx flash player, it will play 720p vids fine.

Superb price, so thank OP, rude to say no imo.

Yay! Thanks for posting this, FINALLY managed to bag a cheap netbook :-)

Who does? The manufacturer? or retailer? or Ebay?
I don't suppose you know which legislation or regulation is stipulating this, do you?


Edited by: "Xiaoda" 15th Jun 2011

Ordered a black one. Folk dissing this deal are quite frankly too lazy or stupid to research the facts. Just because you dont have a need for a netbook, doesnt make it a bad deal. At £110 it's gift. With a bit of tweaking and the right codecs, this'll play 720p videos fine. Ideal for taking on your hols.

Worst case scenario, under distance trading regs you send it back within 7 days (at the seller's expense) if you're unhappy with the condition and/or performance. The Currys/PC World ebay outlet is obviously having a big clear out, so there's netbook bargains to be had. Fill your boots.

The seller you buy it from.

I know nothing.

We got one first time round, only didn't work, seemed to have a duff hard drive. Still can't fault the service, offered a different model, when we didn't like that one offered refund and sorted collection of duff one.

Arguably bad it has Windows 7 STARTER. Probably better off with XP.



What's wrong with the Windows 7 starter pack? Genuine question as I was thinking about ordering one.

As far as I am aware, under UK law, there is no such thing as a limited guarantee, all goods sold, whether new or refurbished, are covered by the Sale of Goods Act, which gives the buyer up to 6 years to seek redress if the item fails through what is deemed to be a problem caused by faulty manufacture. Any guarantee offrered is in addition to the customer's rights offered under the Sale of Goods Act, but cannot replace it, or override it. I am amazed that people still quote guarantees as good or bad selling points as they now have limited value, the present Sale of Goods Act has been in force for many years now.

Depends on what you intend to use the laptop for. If its web browsing, email , watching youtube and the odd office document, then w7 starter is fine.

Read up on limitations of win 7 starter and decide for yourself.

I recall reading one netbook review that compared two identical models, one running xp the other win7. They measured a 10% overhead with win 7.

6 cell battery, sweet :-)

Thank you Giltbrook, that was my understanding too. It sounded like something extra was being discussed specifically in relation to electronics, but I've never heard of such a thing.

I would note however that there is an added 'value' in most vendor's guarantees:

1 - The act provides for replacement of faulty goods, or refund, at the seller's option. The consumer has no automatic right of refund, unlike with guarantees. Legally the shop can choose to replace or refund. A shop warranty often obliges them to let you (the consumer) choose whether you want a refund or replacement.

2 - The act states a 'reasonable' amount of time to take the item back, and this time period is subjective and can therefore be contested by the vendor. If they outright refuse, there is unfortunately not much that can be done, since to sue them would in most cases cost far more than the disputed value. There's nothing saying everyone has 6yrs, which would be pretty unreasonable for e.g. a pair of shoes.

3 - There is generally less fuss when taking an item back under vendor/manufacturer warranty, since they are usually keen to honour them. This is in contrast to consumer statutory rights, which the average shop worker or even manager doesn't really know enough about.

4 - The act protects only consumers purchasing from businesses. It doesn't cover business to business transactions or private sales.

5 - The most important difference is that many (although not all) money back guarantees promise to give your money back for any 'dissatisfaction', even if the product is perfectly fine. Legally, the consumer has no such right to their money back in such circumstances, most of the time.

Hope this helps. I have only recently joined this site so please 'like' this comment if it is helpful to you.

Quick question, for the partition manager screen that came up, what ratio would you suggest the split for C and D drives? My last laptop had a split partition and I always had problems with it so don't want to make the same mistake with this. Ideally I would prefer to just have all the gb on the C drive but it won't let me do that and keeps back 17gb automatically for Samsung's restoration area.
