Aah jebus, it's like 30$ more in america..

edit: lenovo
pros:
ion
2gb ram
good hard drive size
cons:
single core atom.

Acer:
pros:
Dual core amd cpu
6250 video card.

cons: 1 gb ram and it's a bit of a pain to upgrade.
apparently only a max of 2gb but i've heard it could do 4... ask acer on that.
mono speaker.

Yeah that''s probably one of the better things to do, if you can find a c-50 in your price range I doubt you'll be disappointed, they are powerful little buggers and they do tend to beat the ion platform. I myself would stay away from a netbook that's not on the ion2 or the fusion platform (c-50, e-350, e-250).

Not sure about anything higher then 720p, but it's a single core atom which is something i don't like. The c-50 itself is a dual core cpu which out performs the dual core atoms and the gpu is better then the ion2.
