Found 2nd Mar 2010
I do a lot of community voluntary work, and have decided that I could do with a netbook, basically to take along to meetings, work on word and excel documents (to type up minutes of meetings, design posters, fill in registers etc). I can't afford anything high spec, but because of the above will need it to run windows rather than linux, it'll need wifi and ideally a webcam.
Does anyone know a good deal for one please, I'm not too technical on these things so please don't blind me with science lol.
Or if anyone is selling one let me know, as it doesn't need to be new, thanks in advance!

My advice having tried 7" screens and 10" screens is not to drop below 10" as key size and action on the smaller sized netbooks are a pain. I use an Asus eee which I is fine for typing and viewing web pages. You should get one with a 1.6Ghz cpu for around 210 quid. Try Amazon.

I wouldn't normally mention PC World or Dell, but my friend bought one on Sunday, it seems okay to me. Clearance @ PC World. £250 I think.
Cheaper models to buy all over the net, but that is easily accesible..

a wah?? :oops:

I ideally need to keep it around £150 or less, I already have a laptop which I use for everything, so can't justify spending too much. I don't really want to be carrying my lappy around with me all the time, in case I manage to break something on it, hence the idea of a cheapy netbook

, £150 is too low though, raise your budget to £200 and it's do able.



Noticed that now - there used to be a few at sub£150 that were decent for the money.

Most are now £200-plus
