    Didnt last long? Only 11 years as Prime Minster lol 1979 - 1990, and she was much farther up regan's arse let me assure you ;) It was she who was one of the prime causes of the riots in the early 80's sadly. A good woman but her greatest failing is she never listened to anyone.

    I liked Blair, I never voted for him, I didnt agree with Iraq either but this country prospered better than any other time post war, just too much really!

    Man it's crazy the things you can find at the back for the wardrobe.

    An I/O shield
    A woman's cardigan (not my mrs's)
    A silver Tesco duck-shaped photo frame (never seen it before in my life)
    A half eaten dib-dab that went out of date in may 2010

    WHICH 'NETBOOK' TO BUY????

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRGH

    HP Pavilion DM1-3200SA

    Toshiba NB550D

    the HP one looks good for the money. its got more power and more ram. so I was gonna put more ram into the NB550D if i bought it....

    but the E-350 equiped netbook wont last as long on battery as the NB550D.

    so many decisions

    No one agreed with the war over here really ether. I know I didnt. But we were blood thirsty as hell and you know......war is the best business.

    But like I said I think Blair was mislead. Hell a whole nation was. Doesn't make him a bad leader.

    AND MORE:Get the HP freedom, trust me, 11" screens are all right for everyday use, 10" screens while only an inch in it are usually of a really bad ratio and make using the PC a lot harder

    EDIT:They both have a 9 1/2 hour battery life rated, and while the HP may use slightly less if you really put load on it, it will be 1/2 an hours difference max


    Bottom line:Go for the HP

    Double EDIT:The HP has many more screen pixels as well

    trust me, i've just seen the biggest reason to get the HP,it has home premium, the toshiba only has home basic, and at that level using windows 7 can be a pain because of how many features are locked out, you can't even change the desktop background :banghead:

    Its alright, I was gonna upgrade it to W7 ultimate anyway when i put in the 4Gb of ram, the only fly in the ointment is that i need to get the HP for as low as possible as its nearing my budget limit

    I think i used the HP in staples, if so it also has a really nice keyboard for a netbook (although i may be thinking of a different model)

    I could carry on giving you reasons, but at the end of the day the HP is better in almost every way

    Might be worth it. I don't know, personally I don't really use warranty that much.

    nah fuck it, I can always send it back to HP. that netbook+8GB ram = £365.

    the more ram you have the more ram it allocates to the graphics. which again might be stupid because its only an 11.6in screen.

    Netbook needs:

    1. Shitload amount of battery life
    2. Able to boot up and do things without Freedom smashing it to bits
    3. Not much else

    My 5year old laptop weighs about 2.3Kg,

    I need something lighter, more portable, has a battery life longer then 30mins, plays 1080p movies and can handle light gaming. while on the move. I dunno about you but lugging 2.3kg around for 2hrs walking around oxford street while out with friends togther with all the other stuff i need to carry like the power brick and i starts becoming a real burden.

    I wonder why you wouldn't just satisfy yourself with a smartphone. It does most of the things I need to be done, except gaming and you shouldn't "game on the fly" anyway.

    I dont want to be tied to a contract. so a new smart phone would cost me about the same as buying this laptop/netbook here.

    bigger screen & full keyboard = win

    Freedom what you can do is go on Ebay and buy one of those Chinese jobby batteries, they dont cost much but have a really high milliamp so even if they arnt as good as the default battery they might do for like swapping when you run out of charge? I know someone who has a Chinese random battery for their camcorder and it lasts a long time.

    Faster Ram or lower Latency? I heard the biggest problem is the raw speeds and the cpu nb clock not having enough bandwidth in those APUs so overclock them if it allows you see massive gains if i remember.

    EDIT: I like a nice screen and keyboard, there is something satisfying to me about using a real computer. Im getting that Samsung Galaxy SII but im not keen on gaming on it as it has no real buttons, cant imagine how much of a pain Super Street Fighter 4 is on it!
