    $600... for a netbook... so that translates into, what, nearly £500?

    600.00 USD = 340.524 GBP =] not as good as it was a few months ago, but still a strong pound.

    It's getting stupid these prices that they are charging. I'd rather have a bad back lumping a full sized laptop around then pay £500 for an under powered netbook. I've preordered a Samsung NC10 as they seem to of had the sense to drop the price to £300 which is the max that these should cost.

    Yeah but it's never a direct conversion that they seem to charge.

    Where from matey? I've been thinking of doing the same.

    EDIT: Nevermind, loads of places are allowing pre-orders.

    I preordered mine from Play.com for £300. It was the only place to have them available for preorder. What about yourself is this the cheapest you have found them at?

    What about micro anvika, ebuyer, dabs etc.? They all have them available for pre-order, and all around 299.

    I'll wait for the Advent clone ... hoping there is a clone this time.

    I don't think PCWorld will clone it this time around as they have already brought out another netbook based on their own design.
