    Netbook

    Girlfriend is offering to buy me a netbook for my birthday. What do i get though? Im looking for something pretty decent spec.

    Samsung? EEE? Dell?

    edit: will wait for faster processor netbooks later in the year. What else is decent enough out there for a pressie? Maybe big tv?!

    Ive got the Samsung NC10 and its fantastic and I think is still up there in terms of the best netbooks even tho its been out over 6 months now at

    Would say the NC10 ^^^ would be a good choice.

    depends on your budget, NC10 is a really nice machine but there's some new netbooks coming out over the next few months with more powerful processors

    Yeah, ive got an EEEbox 202 already as it is. It struggles to throw back 720p for me at times. Think ill maybe wait.

    What else do i ask for then for my birthday? Got everything i need.

    DON'T get a Dell.

    nice phone? iphone perhaps or maybe a nice hdtv, maybe 32gb ipod touch i love my ipod to bits :P appstore is great

    Powerful netbooks is an oxymoron, they're netbooks because they're not powerful. Small and powerful machines are ultraportables, not netbooks.

    How about better computer peripherals, or a wireless N router and card?

    Well, i only have a 5mb net connection, i dont do too much networking. Would like a surround sound system, but shes not too keen on it. big ass TV is defo on the cards i think though.

    Got a Samsung 32 already, had it for a year and the plan for that is the bedroom.

    Ive got my ps3, xbox 360, wii, sky plus, popcorn hour and a 32 inch HDTV. What else do i need?

    Had an iphone for a while. Really loved the phone, but i got rid of it which paid for a holiday to paris. Got a Nokia 5800 now and i realise ive got better things to do than be playing with my phone half the day. lol.

    Im just stuck for ideas.

    How about an excellent set of headphones instead?
