I'm considering buying this HP netbook from Argos. http://www.argos.ie/static/Product/partNumber/5086964/c_1/1%7Ccategory_root%7COffice%2C+PCs+and+phones%7C14418968/c_2/3%7C19780850%7CLaptops+and+netbooks%7C14419039/c_3/4%7Ccat_14419039%7CNetbooks+and+mini+laptops%7C14419042.htm
It appears to have a good processor and decent spec... I want something small and neat and for a good price and I think this fits the bill. Also I read that the speakers produce good sound too...
I want to use it for listening to music, browsing the net, downloading and watching the occasional movie, word docs and small bit of photoshop maybe..
Whats your opinion?
The HP Mini 210 netbook is a lightweight companion that sounds as good as it looks thanks to Beats Audio. You'll never listen to digital music the same way again thanks to these studio-inspired, heart-pumping, computer speakers. Finally, you can hear your favourite artists the way they want to be heard.

No much difference in CPU tbh but the acer I linked has :
Windows 7 Edition Home Premium OS /bigger screen/more RAM
I'd recommend the Acer
They still sell netbooks? I thought the market for them all but died?
I've ordered that exact HP netbook today from PC World. It's brilliant - get it! BeatsAudio is class!
My brother has a HP Pavillion dm 1, similar look but different specs. Check that.
Go for it instead of the Acer. If you're gonna be attempting to use photoshop, get the HP. I've the HP mini 3300 series and even with it's processor clocking in at 1.6 ghz, it's just not sufficient. So going for the Acer would just be a bad idea.
Though, would you consider paying a similar price for a slightly larger one? Photoshop on a screen that small at those resolutions just sounds counter productive xD
Im looking for a cheap netbook with 6 HOURS OR MORE ON BATTERY
Atleast 2Gb RAM
Atleast 1.60 Ghz or more with DUAL CORE
IMPORTANTLY cd/DVD drive must be included
Must be lightweight
Colour(red,grey,blue,black) anything other than pink,white or purple.
Will use for light gaming and extreme web browsing and typing
Have it myself - total disappointment! Battery not as described at all. Had advent and samsung previously and would go back to them next time.
