Hi,

Which Netbook would you buy and why?.
Cheers

others will advise you with hands on experience but the reviews on this very site will give you a rough idea which will suit.

You may wish to tell everyone exactly what you wish to use this for, it will be much easier. =)

Thanks smackheadz and Incognito78

Just for general internet use and the odd letter,power point etc and using for college.

I have read some of the reviews,but I would sooner here from those who have purchased and been using a netbook for some time

Any thoughts on the Samsung NC-10

I got this

Love it.

And keyboard is nicely spaced.

Very cute and sexy.

Only downside is battery life - only lasts around 2.5 hours but as I rarely take it out of the house, it suits me as I always have a socket on hand to charge it up. I do believe you can buy a larger capacity battery seperately if so desired though.

I would highly recommend.

from asda for a bargain £150 click here

We had an old version of XP and loaded that on. Result is a brilliant notebook/netbook.

PS you had better be quick as they are flying off the shelves in asda.

PS the hard drive is 160Gb, the same spec as LeedsLass but no XP but it is £218 cheaper.

Dave_1 - if Asda website is correct it also has half the memory of mine - 512mb instead of 1024mb
