    Small Netbook/Laptop needed 11.5 inch max

    I am after a small netbook/laptop for my wife and have seen an Acer v3-112p at Currys. Is this the best i can get at this price £ 249.00. I can get £ 10 off with an O2 priority offer. It runs windows 8 and is a touch screeen

    Yes, I seen this but only has 32g hard drive and 2g ram whereas the Curry's V3-112p has 500hd 4 g ram and touch screen
    I wanted to spend around £ 200 ish for a decent spec

    The Curry's is a regular hard drive though of 500MB, where-as the one mentioned has an SSD drive (which is far faster and superior). With regards to the drive size, it depends which is most important to you - speed or storage capacity.

    check out the HP stream 11

    Have you thought about the tablet route?
    imo anything less then 13" is better off as a tablet, you can always add a bluetooth keyboard

    I'd go for the Acer. You can always upgrade a HDD/SSD but you're stuck with the CPU on most Netbooks. Just remember that the memory is DDR3L which isn't the same as DDR3 Sodimm as it uses a lower voltage for the ram, so DDR3 may or may not work correctly on this Netbook.

    Always go for the best CPU over RAM and storage.

    which Acer? The Tesco one or Curry's?

    review of older model notebookcheck.net/Ace…tml <= looks like the 112p has a new CPU so should be faster.

    I'd double check this acer.co.uk/ac/…008
    Acers Website CPU Intel Pentium N3540 Quad-core 2.16 GHz
    PCWorld Website CPU Intel® Celeron® Processor N2840 ?
    Possible older stock that they're trying to get rid of ? I'd check to see what is up with that.

    Sorry mate, go with the Tesco one. Looks like there is a better version of the Acer Aspire v3 112p that has the Quad core CPU but the PCworld/Curry one isn't it.

    very.co.uk/ace…prd <= This is the better CPU Version for £279 from very

    The extra £100 gets you the faster CPU, Touch screen & 4GB of memory which I would go for.

    Four Versions of the same Netbook.

    Damn That was a nice Netbook. Can only find Very/Littlewoods which is out of stock. Looks like it was a bit of a strange fish, the CPU tends to show up in the bigger display models only elsewhere. Maybe Very had the specs written down wrong. I can't find any other unit with similar spec

    Definitely worth the extra notebookcheck.net/Int…tml
