Re: Netbook offer £175

I think I read somewhere windows xp support runs out in 2014 don't know if anybody els can throw some light on it, if this is the case new note books and laptops with xp operation system might be cheaper, maybe worth buying though just upgrade to vista.

Briand.

Re: Netbook offer £175

No code

Just follow the ordering process through and the price will show as a deduction, I just checked it out moments ago and it worked fine.

It will change just before you are asked to make payment.

Re: Netbook offer £175

I know this isn't info on the most powerful of laptops etc, but if you need a notebook for just having to hand and want to have access to browsing with a few limited functions - don't want to watch long movies or handle tons of pictures, just don't buy the functions you won't use, so the cheapest about at the moment has to be the Maplin offer:

£69.99. Each. Windows CE Ultra-Portable Netbook - Free delivery as well. Refurbished / returned unit - but saves a shed load of money just to have something to hand to access emails etc and do some word processing stuff on the move as and when you need it, esp. if travelling. Very light weight too - no hassle with grumpy weight restrictions at check in.

Features:

Small on price and very small on size, just 675g
Ideal for web surfing, email, word processing and spreadsheets

They also have the Ubi Surfer ultra portable unit too, at £139 new, so might be another option if this size suits your needs. Have a look round their web site in the computing section for details.
