    They should sell the pink one in the lingerie department with matching underwear, they'll sell loads

    A poke in the eye for the first person to do a pun based on "This is no ordinary laptop, this is an M&S laptop"

    This isn't any netbook this is a M&S netbook with a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Processor, 1GB of RAM... Oh wait a minute... isn't every netbook like that these days? Struggling to see how M&S could justify their £279 price when shoppers will be more inclined to buy a Samsung for that price.

    Maybe I should start my own range of Moose branded netbooks!! They would be ultra thin after a Moose had branded it!!

    Strange, you would have thought M&S would go with someone a bit more up-market than Elonex.

    So does this mean that Elonex are finally solvent and trading responsibly ? I believe that they've gone into liquidation at least once (nope, twice), thereby leaving their customers without any warranty.
