Slooooooooooooooooooow

Whether that matters or not is a different matter. I know people who have them just for grabbing a bit of email or a quick web page on the move. I use my iphone for that generally.

I wouldn't suggest it for anything more than that though and the speed would certainly annoy the heck out of me

I was thinking the same thing. Very slow. It would also drive me insane.

Me insane ---> :mental:

Honestly there's no way I'd consider buying something like that on ebay.

Adrian says about 300 minimum for a decent netbook. And remember they tend not to come with CD rom drives so if you want to install software you'll need to buy external drives for it.

Steven is getting one for Christmas. :thumbsup:

yep!

or install over the network from another machine. Easy enough to setup with a couple of cables

I really like my Asus, which I usually for word processing and the net, nothing else.

I'm waiting for the apple tablet and/or Microsoft book. I think either of those will bring a new era of devices perfect for travelling around and light web/email use

Well it's the first year we've really had the money to go to town at Christmas so we're treating him. :D
