Found 26th Oct 2009
I've been throughly researching the web on which netbook to buy. I'm planning on getting one which I can resell at a later date without making a large loss. Therefore ideally it needs to be on special offer. I've seen the MSI one in argos. Checked laptops direct. They have some ASUS EEE PC's frm about £235.

The Spec needs to be at least 1GB RAM as I plan to run windows 7 on it.
Intel Atom N270 is fine.

PLease can I have some suggestions! Also please bare in mind i'm on a tight budget. However I do want the best value for money.

In one post one guy said he bought an acer aspre one for £162!
I wonder what spec that was, any ideas?

what about this ]http//ww…652

Msi wind they are a fantastic netbook and at £199 they are about the best buy for a netbook baring in mind that they where the same price as the samsung Nc10 and with Argos giving £10 off another purchase with Xmas coming that comes in at £190 and i doubt there will be anyone in the UK that doesn't buy at least 1 item from Argos for a loved one for Xmas. Did i mention the 2years warranty with MSI and at least with the MSI you have a company that are one of the big 5 motherboard and high end PC parts manufacturers in the world so there build is way better than Acer and Toshiba.

[FONT=Verdana]I suppose the key things are how large is your budget but also do you already have Windows 7 (if so which version).

I havent really set a budget in mind. I'm also going to be buying a laptop in addition to a net book. I would like a netbook with minimum 120gb hard drive, 1.3megapixel camera and built in bluetooth. If I was on a v.tight budget (I dont knw till ive bought my laptop). What is the cheapest notebook out there with 1GB RAM, i do not mind if it is used or refurbished. ANY IDEAS???

[FONT=Verdana]Mmm...I think your best bet would be to consider checking out the Dell UK Outlet and checking out the refurbished Dell Mini 10/10v Netbooks that are listed there but you will need to filter them & go through them carefully to find the right one (you can find ones with six cell batteries, N class wireless cards, etc).

Alternatively there are several deals already listed for Netbooks on HotUKDeals, with the cheapest live being the Acer Aspire One Netbook from eBuyer - for the life of me I can't remember the exact model (it's a 10" screen) but it was going for £199.99p the last time I looked at it.

What RAM does this EEE PC use. I want to add another 1GB after purchasing it. How much will this cost and what will be the cheapest price?

Also i'm a bit lost the "latest EEE PC on asus's website is the 1105HA. However it has a slower processor at 1.3GHZ. please clarify.

If I remember correctly the 1105HA has a slightly weaker CPU but is ramped up in power due to the addition of a higher end graphics card - I'll be honest it's not one I've looked at all but the comparison table should give you a better idea but also there are lots of reviews out there for you to check out as well.

Was that a recent deal or a previous one from earlier in the year? Just wanted to check in case it's one you might want to consider posting in as a deal thread (if it's still on the go).
