  • You're doing better than we are Nige, they're $AU900 here, about £430. I don't think they're selling too well.

  • It's stupid marketing Dan. :)

  • For just $400, I believe it is a good partner for a travel person. The biggest concern I have is the working time of its battery.

    • Dude, if you're going to spam the blog at least add value. Otherwise I'll just start vaping your vapid texts.

  • Wow, Nigel, that was a very glowing review of the little/big/note/net – book. I was thinking of getting one of them, for the portability and all day work load, but with the all day work load, I needed it to be my primary computer, and unfortanetly the atom processor doesn't cut it. I ended up with the Lenovo X200 (w/ a 9 cell), which I think you'd like since it shares many of the same benefits of which you speak of here, and also the same cons (high price).

    Btw, since you didn't mention it directly, I assume that it runs very cool to the touch? The low power draw I would believe makes that possible. Is there a fan for the processor? How loud does it get, if at all? (compared to other laptops you've used in the past).

    Also, I don't know if it's been your experience, but battery meter in the past, for me, seem to always be quite inaccurate when it comes down to the last half an hour. So I'm always a bit leery of the accuracy of its readings.

    • Hi Kainnon, all good points. The machine is very quiet (no fan noise that I can detect) and runs very cool. In contrast to my main laptop which I've just had to buy a cooler for since the hard disk was hitting 70 degrees C at points!!

      Hmm…the battery meter thing is definitely an issue, I suppose I was really trying to point out that the thing is incredibly frugal. I've had it on all day today (still on that initial charge from the post) and it's still on 58% remaining (4.59 hours) which says to me that it shuts down completely when in standby mode. For me that's just about perfect. What you want is a machine that will sit there consuming almost zero for as long as possible, then sip juice when you need it to go online or whatever. This is the first PC of any kind that I've found which does this.

      I suppose I could drop that battery meter freeware we posted a few days back on and see what that shows? Mmm….


  • Such beautiful prizes to win.I hope I’m lucky enough to win the Asus Eee PC 1000HE Mini Notebook Computer.It would be my first of winning anything.I need one badly,mine is about to croke and then I will be lost.Thanks for the opportunity.
