    Look on Ebay. They go for around £70/80 there but you lose £15 of that to Thiefbay and their mates at Scampal. :roll:

    you can get a refurbed acer aspire for that price from laptops direct, similar spec, but it has the 1.6 ghz atom which is a far superior proessor

    cheers allrep will be added

    Which model of eee is it? Assuming it's one of the ones with an 8.9" (or 10") screen and 6-cell battery then it's a great deal at that price. The 900Mhz Celeron is roughly the same speed as the 1.6Ghz Atom but uses more power, however the eees come with correspondingly higher capacity batteries to compensate.

    chhers when i look online it seems like it is a 900 series but not really sure i did check the details on specs on the machine and they are acurate so really not sure i thought this was a great deal but wanted to check
