Help me pick a Netbook

Max budget £200, but don't really need to spend it if there is something very close spec-wise for £150

It'll mainly be used to Spam AO surf the net on the sofa but I might do a bit of 'homework' now and then, Word or Excel.

What to pick?

I'm using my lads Acer Aspire One at the moment as I punched the life out of my HP Pavillion recently

Nice bit of kit tbh and does everything twice as quick as my old HP and it's about 3 years old.

Win 7, Android OS, Word preloaded, 10.1 screen, Intel Atom WIFI not sure about RAM GB but I've loaded around 5,000 images/files/docs etc off my old HDD onto it with no problems and no speed issues. Querty keyboard very responsive

Less than 200 now at pc world and look to be a little bigger and probably a higher spec

No bluetooth on this one which is the only thing that lets it down IMO 3 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI,
RJ45, headphone in, aux out jacks, card reader, micro phone jack .

Little powerhouse tbh but there's loads of stuff out there now...
My Samsung Galaxy SII can do as much stuff I need as my laptop did

netbooks tend to have the same specs so any will do to be honest. I bought my samsung N145 for £120 from Carphonewarehouse on christmas sale.
Wait for the deals to pop up and snap it up as they are all the same
