but it costs to upgrade to windows 8, around £14.99 at very best, and its refurbished, not new...no good for a present for my daughter....thanks anyway though

why cold? buying as a gift so interested to know why its not a good deal?

sorry, I just had a quick look at the same seller.

hotukdeals.com/dea…063

^ this one has a faster processor (around twice as fast) albeit a slightly worse graphics card and will set you back £265 even after the windows 8 upgrade.



the reason people are voting it cold is the fact that effectively this is too expensive to be running a netbook type processor, you can get better specs for cheaper.

thanks....not 100% sure about specs myself, thought memory was good, netbooks usually only 1gb, maybe 2gb, this is 6gb..has hd, good size screen etc...thought it lookde good, plus already windows 8

Windows 8 does apparently run much better on these netbook-class processors, but there's no getting away from the fact that this is just a souped-up netbook. As previous posters have already pointed out, you can get much more for less money elsewhere.
