Glad you like the link, I chuckled when I found it. Seriously though, I would rather take the advice of professional reviewers who tend to be neutral rather than people who have bought one for their own use.
my wife has a nc10 and i cant fault it apart form the touchpad is super sensitive, the battery life is great around 5 1/2 to 6 hrs. and my son has an acer one 110- AW(with linux on it), it does everything he wants (browsing the web, word processing and skype) the battery life is about 2 hrs but he has it plugged in most of the time you can get a better battery but they are pricey. we got the acer one from comet at a bargain £160 but im not sure if they still sell that model. pc world have a large selection of netbooks on display which you could take your grandson to look at and then just shop around for the best deal. happy shopping
thanks for all the additional info. Will take in on board and pass the info on to my wife. Daughter will be taking him around the shops after his birthday so expect he will decide exactly what he wants, regardless of our input!
Sadly, only a brief stopover in Singapore on way to join my ship and won't be back until the autumn. Too late.
