Hi
Sorry dont know much on the tecnical side, but people on here have guided me to the below and both are great little machines
M&S Netbook when it had £104 off making it £175 with 2 year warrenty (but you will have to wait for the offer again
ttp://marksandspencer.com/M-S…rh=
and Argos argos.co.uk/sta…htm currently on offer £199 with 3 year warrenty but you will be lucky to get stock
If you are not in a hurry I would say wait for the offers and keep checking this site - just put netbook inot the search - o and by the way both above are XP I guess you will pay more for windows 7

If you do a lot with Word, I'd go to Curry's or somewhere and try one.

A 10" screen is no fun to type with for long. . .

Hi,
Thanks for the links, what was the offer on the m&s one? argos is out of stock lol

Hi, I use a MSI U100 (pink).I paid £200 on offer in Argos.They currently have the new ones loaded with Windows 7.I connect to the internet with my 3 dongle.I find it very fast and plenty of storage for my music and photo's.I would recommend this to anybody.

Hope this helps

Hi
the M&S one is currently £279 if you wait it may go back down, I got the blue one with £104 off it making it £175:-D

Get a samsung netbook, they're awesome!
I had the nc10 the only reason i got rid of it was because the newer models came out!
battery life is amazing (8 hours if i remember!)

I upgraded the ram to 1gb on it, and i used it on a daily basis for word etc, it even managed to play some 720p files randomly! so yeah brilliant for everything other than gaming!

Ohhh and another thing, try looking for a 11" inch screen, I found that I had to scroll horizontally on some pages because of the resolution they were meant for..
