Recommend a netbook?

Post by andrew » Mon May 09, 2011 8:49 am

Hello - I'm hoping that you tech-savvy chaps can help me out here. It's my missus' birthday next week and I have been 'encouraged' to buy a netbook (laptop too bulky and iPad too expensive). Can anyone recommend a decent brand/model that won't fall apart after a year or so? I guess I could spend two and a half ton if I had to..

Cheers

Acer are probably the best balance of value for money and quality, and if you buy direct from them it can be much cheaper than in the shops. How about this?

Hmmm I've never used an Acer machine before. That machine you linked to does look like a good one, cheers for the tip.

Now THAT is the sort of thing I'm after, cheers Mr Drop. Does it have MS Office pre-installed?
