Samsung NC10 will do you nicely. £300 though.
this is what I've gotwish I hadn't now...no disk drive but I'm sure you can get an external oneslow, runs on XPbut obviously it all depends on what you're buying it for, if it's for your main computer...avoid

You expect too much.I have the NC10 and it's brilliant.Ofcourse there is no disk drive. Main purpose is portability and disk drives are huge.For it to run optimally you need to upgrade the RAM to 2GB like I did. Runs beautifully with windows 7 and Vista Premium.Obviously it is not intended as a main pc but for a portable piece of kit at an affordable price it's pretty damn good.

safe peeps. Now i'm thinking I might as well just buy a new proper spec laptop, cos by the time i've spend xyz cash on these accessories to make this netbook up to par. Cost (which is what I was trying to minimise) are just gonna go through the roof.But still like the look and compact features about em...
