Just a quick note.
Yesterday I bought the above (netbook/6-cell battery/ext. charger) from Noel Leeming at
The Base in Hamilton for $379 ALL UP.
They tried to push a $99 warranty (Consumer Guarantees Act does this so waste of $$), and
MS Word/etc as well hehe.
Cheapest I could find this on the ´Net was $430.
Intel Atom N570 1.66GHz Dual-Core
1GB DDR3? RAM - Max 2GB.
~250GB SATA HDD
NM10 Express Chipset
Grabbed Kubuntu Netbook iso, created usb boot drive, blew away Win7 Starter, installed
fine, sound and wireless appear to work out of the box (no drivers D/L´ed) - can see
several other wireless APś in network scan so I´m guessing that means itś working.
Bluetooth seems to be working (can see other devices).
Not sure when sale ends, so if interested be in quick.
Noel Leeming is very close to Dick Smith at The Base.
hope this helps someone.
This might help you out :-)
