I like how they put all the USB connecters further back as it's one thing that bugs me with their intel version even with there newer version some of them are up front which is annoying.

Like to see a 17" laptop

For £379 you get single core, 2GB RAM and 250GB HDD.
If you want the dual core, 4GB, 320GB HD model it will cost you £499

Prices include VAT and shipping.
It's not up on the US web site (unless I missed it somewhere).

Nice. I really like my current netbook but these look sweeeeet. Prices are a little steep though. Any word on battery life? My current netbook is great on battery time. That weighs a lot with me when buying netbooks. I like going a full day without having to charge.

Very interesting. Looks like a sleek like netbook, and I like the AMD power, better processing power and better graphical power than the Atom based netbooks out there.

+1 to that.
Ive been waiting for AMD based Netbooks. Need to see some concrete numbers before I rush to upgrade though.
