    Good review, thanks Hexus.

    It seems like there's little point comparing performance of these netbooks anymore! It's all about user experience and how little they do odd things like load up the bloatware.

    If you get your hands on a Toshiba N305 it might make an interesting comparison - same spec, of course, but one of the better rated netbooks.

    I'll second those sentiments!
    Nothing a few uninstalls wouldn't solve, of course, but between Acer asking you to register your product, McAfee constantly prompting you to activate your security and Norton encouraging you to entrust your data to the cloud, the out-the-box D260 experience can be frustrating.
    So first uninstall is the bundled OS then - I guess in most cases for a vanilla Win7 (i.e. minus bloat), or in my case for an Ubuntu NR install.

    Nice to see that Acer have realised that a netbook is about cheapness and size (in that order!). Hopefully with etailer discount this'll get close to £200, or preferably under...
