Only from 7pm to 8pm tonight

If you want or need that sort of thing it has to be a bargain at that price.

Cheers

Thanks for the heads-up!

Do you have any doco or ad that mentions this that we need to "mention" when purchasing? Is it in all stores?

I've got a cousin who could very well be interested!

Whats wrong with Acer? I am using one of these in Cambodia as we speak. Couldnt find anything bad about Acer on the net. Supposed to be one of the top Chinese brands.
Who has experienced problems?

I got the exact email BT did. It's legit.
Fingers crossed this works...

Acer. Not.

Acer's netbooks are remarkably well built. My Acer Aspire One D250 is still going strong after 2 years of use and abuse. I'm quite surprised actually.

My Asus is even older (2007 I think?) and still works also. Lets see who's is still working in another 2 years?

Don't listen to the Acer haters they are living in the past. Acer went through a bad patch and had heaps of issues with their laptops. (as have most manufacturers)
I've got a 4 year old acer and a 5 year old acer and both are still working great even the battery in the 5 year old one still lasts over 2 hours.

Yeah I'm with CYaBro, I've found their recent stuff to be pretty decent, especially as they step out past the usual el-cheapo laptop, their netbooks are actually considerably more reliably!

How does Win7 starter run on the Atom 1.6?

To me spend abit more to get something more grunty though $299 is a good price point for something like this

It runs just fine, even on the single-core Atoms.

Still haven't seen one as cheap as the hardly norman xmas deal from a couple of years ago.
I got an Asus EeePC for $288. Awesome little machine especially after I upgraded the RAM to 2GB and installed Win7 Pro. :D
