Hi James, sounds good, but as we're not on unlimited broadband I decided to think twice and not use it. I'm worried Sky will contact us for going over!

Only problems with the 20 GB online storage is: Is it reliable? Is it fast? Is the service well-known? I use Livedrive on my netbook, unlimited, free, storage space, and the service is very fast. It adds an extra drive to 'My Computer', drive L, so its very easy just to push files up there. www.livedrive.com-----Original Message----- From: Léonie Watson <tink@xxxxxxxxxx> To: access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx <access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Date: Saturday, January 03, 2009 02:17:13 PM Subject: [access-uk] Re: Netbooks Yes, that's the same one. Definitely a bargain from Play. It doesn'tseem to mention the 20Gb online storage though, which I had included when Ibought mine from PC World and which Amazon also mention. It's effectively 20Gb of storage space that you can access online. Instead of storing things on your netbook, you can store them online usingthis service. I haven't used mine yet, but one useful thing would be to useit to store files as backup. That way, if your netbook was lost or stolen, you'd still have copies of all your files.

It's feature rich and has better network support than most other netbooks. Storage space wasn't a factor forme either, but I liked the 20Gb off-site storage space offered as part of the package. The keyboard quirks do take a little getting used to, but no more than getting used to the switch from a desktop to laptop keyboard generally. I love the fact the 901 is small enough to fit into my usual bag, so there'sno need to carry extra baggage around. It's light too, at just 1.1Kg, so isreally no hassle to carry around.The battery life is superb. I easily get five or six hours up time, fromfull charge. Running Win XP, Jaws and several MS apps, this is definitely good going.It's also one of the cheapest options out there. Amazon have it for just£285 at the moment. http://www.amazon.co.uk/BK007X-Netbook-Windows-Preloaded-Black/dp/B001C9SXKC /ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8 <http://www.amazon.co.uk/BK007X-Netbook-Windows-Preloaded-Black/dp/B001C9SXK C/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1230987162&sr=1-1> &s=electronics&qid=1230987162&sr=1-1 Léonie. -- http://www.tink.co.uk/ _____From: access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf OfBarbara Wilson Sent: 03 January 2009 08:10 To: access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [access-uk] Re: Netbooks Hi Andy Just my own personal thoughts:I went for the Asus even though it has a small memory as Steve says. Mainly because I don't want it to store files on and with a larger memory I felt Imight be tempted to do this and slow the whole thing down. Mine is an Asus Eee PC 901 and has everything I need - Bluetooth, wireless, memory cardslot, three USB ports etc. The keys are not too small either. A few things -The right hand shift is in a different place, there is no control on the right side and the Enter key is not its usual shape. Once you get used to these things it is a great little piece of kit. It is practically silent even when the fan is going, the speakers are not at all tinny as they were with my larger laptop and even with 1GB of RAM it is very fast, especially when on the Internet via my wireless connection. I got mine on Amazon not Play simply because they had a nice little pink one, but I don't suppose that would appeal to you! With all the hype about the NC10 on here which would not be as small andneat as mine, I just thought it was about time someone spoke up for the poorold Asuses!
