    Pink Netbooks Not suggesting to buy from these links ) just to show which ones are in pink etc will show some specs

    The one on Ebay Says refurb but then says NEW unopened. So £189.99 is pretty cheap for it as long as it is New.. I would not be paying £189.99 if it had been used and then serviced/repaired / etc

    Email them and ask them to clarify if it is NEW and unopened as they say


    The MSi for £159.99 at Maplins is the best deal, it's new with a 2yr … The MSi for £159.99 at Maplins is the best deal, it's new with a 2yr warranty.

    Is it new ? or clearance A,B (the black one I found was £169.99) New

    I was working on the assumption OP wanted a Pink one rather than a black one :lol

    I think the one at Maplins has been discontinued?


    Like I said it was New, if you look in the deals section it has been … Like I said it was New, if you look in the deals section it has been posted with a £10 off code.Also edit your goddam posts.

    When you say new though you might not know what you're talking about (it never showed up on Maplins site for £159) which would indicate you were talking about a b grade or something as I only ever search for NEW Items .

    It was £169.99 (you neglected in your post to mention there was a coupon for £10 off) otherwise when I found the 1 for £169.99 I would have known instantly it was the one you were on about(instead of using logic to say it will be the one but still ask anyways) . And no I will not edit my posts. The edit function does not work properly anyways but I will post a new response when I like with relevant information. Thanks

    just had loads of hassle with a refurb netbook from argos clearance-it came without anything but the mains lead and sticky key..they dont respond to emails and use a third party for repair. The third party phone lines always busy. Argos seem to ignoe the DSR law..If you look feedback you will see a few negs for it?

    I have the same model,i bought it in January it was 230 new from Comet,it's a brill netbook.
