The "go to deal" link seems to be broken for me :(. What is the battery life like on this?

See here morgancomputers.co.uk/sho…274

and here reghardware.co.uk/200…tml

Was only £2.99 for delivery when I looked the other day

After reading around it seems this has a smaller chassis/keyboard than some (e.g. Aspire One), but what put me off was an owner's complaint that holding the edge of the lid causes the screen to ripple. Anyone else know about this?

Can u clarify that in laymans terms, is it good or bad:?



See edit above. Smaller keyboard may or may not bother you. Some reviewers liked use of Ubuntu rather than othe linux versions. All else being equal, I'd prefer Toshiba to Acer, but all else isn't equal. It's a b*gger, isn't it.

@DecentBloke Thanks for the links. I think I will pass, since the keyboard size is an issue for me and I am also worried about the comment with the screen.

Rubbish netbook, keyboard too small to be useful, screen is just awful and unit generally looks/feels tacky as hell. About 2 hours battery. At this price go for an Aspire One, always cheap deals for that on this site. Or if you want the best get a Samsung NC10.

To the OP, initial description states 120GB should be 80GB.

Link now shows out of stock. Phoned my local store (West Midlands) and was told they don't think they will be getting any more.
