Deal: £113.94 MSI Wind U180 Netbook

Argos sells the MSI Wind U180 netbook (via its eBay outlet) for £113.94, a price that includes 110 Nectar points. Note that the device is a refurbished one but it still comes with a full 12-month warranty.

This being a netbook, you shouldn't expect much for the price. It is powered by a combination of Windows 7 Starter edition (commonly known as Microsoft Windows 7 Lite) with an Intel Atom N2600, a dual core model with 1MB of cache and a clock speed of 1.6GHz).

The rest of the feature list includes a 10in display with a 1,024 x 600 pixel resolution, 1GB of RAM, 320GB hard disk drive, an integrated Intel GMA graphics sub-unit, two USB ports, a HDMI one, a webcam, an Ethernet port but no optical drive.

Netbooks are a dying breed, one that is gradually making way to more versatile convertibles or tablets. They still rule the roost, for now, when it comes to a keyboard-driven environment but that is likely to change as touchscreen capabilities permeate to the entry level.
