MSI Wind 130 with new N450 + Win7 at < £200

Is it me or is this really a very very good price?

Have just seen MSI Wind U130 Netbook with new N450 1.66Ghz processor and Windows 7 Starter at under £200 at Argos - see: click here

It seems a v. good price to me, esp with Win7.

Key other parts of spec:

1GB Ram
1.3megapixel webcam
Wireless b/g/n

and at that price I think it's a bit of a bargain.

I just stumbled on this deal on the Argos site yesterday when I was looking for some mundane household goods. Even without the special offer, it still seems a reasonably good price at £229 given that it includes Win7.

It's just my bad luck that I bought an Acer Aspire One D250 (N270 with XP) for £189 (including carry case) from Ebuyer just a few weeks ago. I could have been seriously tempted by this MSI Wind.

Obviously don't know if the Argos deal was on back then, but I did look around at what was on offer (e.g. Saverstore, DABS, PCWorld etc.) and the Acer from Ebuyer seemed a pretty good deal.

Didn't really think of checking out Argos - it's not somewhere that I think of for buying PC stuff.

And, by way of contrast, I've just received a mail shot from Ebuyer with what they claim is an "Amazing Price" on this similar HP machine at £297 click here

Key diffs in spec:

+Has 250GB HDD (instead of 160GB)
+Has 6 cell battery (instead of 3)
- Only has Wireless b/g (instead of b/g/n)

It makes one wonder if Argos have made a mistake.
