Hi Paul, I've got an Acer One, running Windows 7, 160gb hd, led screen, batter lasts anywhere between 4-6 hours dependent on use. Selling for £200, fully boxed in mint condition, no scratches or marks. I bought new for £270 about 6 months ago.

Thanks for the offer but i could get a new one for around that price or put a little extra, thanks anyway

They never made netboooks that ran Vista as it required too much power, so they continued selling Netbooks running Windows XP even when Vista was out (which I why you still see them around).

Now that Windows 7 is out you should not even consider buying a netbook with Windows XP on it.

thanks but no stock in my area got a couple of samsungs n130's i think anyone know if there any good?

I have an NC10 which is powerful enough to run Win7 and the RAM upgrade is cheap, THE feature that swings it is a good 7 hours battery life. The newer version, N130, is probably a good current option -they retail around £200-240.
