Update regarding Mrs C's new netbook....

It did not last four days before it died on her. We returned it to Argos and when asked would you like a replacement I had the sense to ask "How many other models of this type have been returned with the same problem?" It turns out one was returned yesterday so I asked for my money back. Mrs C is not a happy bunny and neither am I. Shoddy Chinese rubbish.

What sort was it, so I can avoid it?

Netbooks have shot up in price I noticed when I was looking last week. I keep hoping that Aldi will have the Medion ones (I first bought one over 2 years ago now and it's been excellent) back in on special, but no sight of late.

It is this one:

Windows 7 Zoostorm FreedomXL 250GB 10.2in Netbook

My son looked at it & stated it was cheap & shoddy...a few days later he was proved right!

I suspect that anything with a 250GB hard drive for that price won't be up to much.

Unless she's absolutely adamant that she wants Windows 7, I'd stick with XP for a netbook (much less resource hungry). seems like a good deal. If Aldi's don't do their Medions netbook offer again soon, I shall be getting some sort of Samsung myself. I was at a training day yesterday and the woman running it used an old N110 for all the presentation and it was great.
