Hi guys

Can anyone recommend me a netbook with the following specs:

Dual Core Atom Processor
2GB Ram (if 1GB that is fine also, as I can upgrade cheaply)
6 - Cell Battery

and the most important thing (according to the school which the kid is going to who will be using the laptop)...

Wireless a/g/n!

Does anyone know why a is needed? Embarassed

Also would want a decent price, because the family who is buying this is on a budget.

Acer Aspire One AOD255
Atom N550
Win7 Starter
3yr wty

$408 incl GST and shipping.

The below deal is really food as well. It's a full fledged laptop with much better hardware specs and the copy of Windows is not starter edition unlike the above link.

Do whatever you want to do man.

retailslave: Is the wireless a/g/n?

Good question. Both these are specified as b/g/n. What is the source of your requirement?

In theory the 'n' standard provides backward compatibility with 'a' standard. I'd prefer to hear it from someone who knows about it in practice.
