A Celeron for how much!? Sorry but that is overpriced a fair bit especially the other spec also.

well it's not gaming pc by the way if you say it's overpriced, probably you can get it for £200 ??? it's good design, solid build, good size of HDD , what else you want??? it's for general use, not playing or using photoshop or illustrator. and it's very light ...

"it comes with widows 7 recovery DVD"

just in time for hallowe'en?

13" laptops carry a premium, so do ULV laptops most of the time.

This seems to have a rather small battery life for a thin-and light. It may be portable, but for this class of machine I'd want a big fat battery to complement the build and processor.

Other cheap ULV alternatives include HP DM3 or Acer Timelines seen on this site. None this cheap though, so have some heat!

Cheap MacBook pro rip off, however saying that it is cheap. Not my cup of tea though so not voting either way

Nice looking laptop shame no HD video chipset.

hurr durr HD

Would just like to point out that the press photo's make this look like it's really thin, almost like a macbook air, it plainly isn't in the flesh (re plastic).

totally agree, alos you call this a ultra low voltage processor and it only gives you 2-3 hours battery life =(

Why expired?

i think this laptop is perfect for your parents who only need it for internet use. people who want to use laptops for gaming or creative work shouldn't even review things like this as they need to stick to proper PC machines n keep their comments to themselves!

Just grabbed one of these for testing our website on Internet Explorer (yeah I know I can install parallels or vmware etc on my Mac, but this is easier)

It's a nice piece of kit for the money. It's lightweight but with a bigger screen and resolution than a typical Netbook. The web browser runs quickly on it.

Impressed with SaveOnLaptops also. I ordered yesterday afternoon using the standard 48 hour delivery option. Got an email last night notifying me it would be delivered between 2pm and 3pm today. Arrived today on schedule.

Hot deal from me at this price. Thanks to OP.

Dear Sir,

I'm having difficulty in finding a replacement battery for this Viewbook. Has anybody had any luck
in locating one?
