Hey guys, it’s been a while since we’ve posted on here.
The site has had plenty of visitors which is why we left things alone for you guys to keep using the tutorials etc…
Theres been so much happening recently, lots of new netbooks, tablets and not forgetting the iPad!
We’re thinking of reviving this site, if we go ahead there will be plenty of upgrading and updating over the next few weeks. We are on the look out for people who would like to contribute to the site with their netbook/tablet reviews, stories, gossip, etc etc… so feel free to contact us if you fancy helping out.
Well it’s been out for a little while now but we thought we would show you the Samsung NC10 in the flesh for those that haven’t saw it yet. The Samsung NC10 is considered by many to be the best netbook on the market at present mainly due to its build quality, a great battery as standard giving a fantastic 6hr running time between charges and the extras that many leave out such as a case, restore discs etc…
Admittedly this is one good looking solid piece of kit, enjoy!
Well guys and gals after the huge success of the Advent 4211 there is a new boy on the block. Welcome to the Advent 4213
We haven’t had out hands on it yet to give it the usual abuse we like to give netbooks but what’s apparent is this is not a re-badge of the fabulous MSI Wind.
PC World , Dixons and Currys are selling these units for £349.99 and the specs include an Atom processor, built in mobile broadband (3G), 10.2″ wide-screen display, 1GB Memory and a 160GB HDD and we believe it will come with a 6 cell battery although unconfirmed. The operating system is Windows XP and will more than likely to bundled with Works etc.. although again not confirmed to us at this stage. To us it looks rather like an ECS G10L netbook which has had the Advent re-badge treatment but until we see some concrete reports or physically get one in our office take that as speculation.
We would love to hear from anyone who can confirm some of the whispers we’ve heard so feel free to leave a reply.
Yahoo! Noooo not the search engine, but the Yahoo as in “Hurrah”, “Yeehaaah” and “Yessss”, why the cheers? As you will probably be aware the MSI Wind is due to be stocked on UK shelves sometime in the very near future but why would you want to wait and even more to the point, why pay more?
Soon after our photos were released the Advent 4211 went flying off the shelves and stock became like hen’s teeth to find apart from the odd chancer selling them on eBay for £50+ above the R.R.P. Good news though, PC World have them back in stock for both collect in store and home delivery. If your going to buy one then why not think about the memory upgrade while you have you wallet open. Our easy to follow Advent 4211 Memory upgrade tutorial can be found HERE.
We had a few of the 4211′s lying around our office which were promptly claimed by staff and 9 out of 10 NetbookMag.com staff say they prefer the 4211 to any other netbook they have used. The scariest thing of all is i agree with them. Go grab one before they all go again and let us know your thoughts on the machine. DIRECT LINK
Toshiba have told apcmag.com that the mini note should appear on shelves soon.
Here’s some details from their website.
Toshiba is set to join industry heavyweights HP and Dell in the mainstream surge towards compact mini-note PCs. “We’ve been looking at the market place and we will have a ULPC very soon” Mark Whittard, General Manager of Toshiba Australia, revealed to APCmag.com during the company’s annual MobileXchange mobile computing forum in Sydney.

Acer’s Aspire One has an 8.9in screen and runs an Intel Atom CPU. It’s 24cm wide and 17cm deep, yet it’s reasonably comfortable to use, and best of all, its underbelly barely gets warm, so you can use it on your lap without feeling the heat.
The Aspire One is Acer’s first ‘netbook’ PC and it’s a computer for the Internet lifestyle. You can use it for browsing the Web, chatting online, streaming media, viewing photos and updating your social networking sites while you’re on the go. Continue reading »
We were lucky enough to get our hands on the new Advent 4211 netbook today so we thought we would share the un-boxing of the unit so you can see for your self.
What the heck is an Advent 4211 netbook we hear you cry, well, to put it plainly it’s a MSI Wind that has been re-badged. We haven’t had the time to give it a full hand’s on review yet but expect one soon.
Last time we looked, the Advent 4211 was available all over the UK at PC World stores for reserve and collect or home delivery. Best of all it’s around £40 / $80 cheaper than the branded MSI Wind.
