I bought the easy one silver when my desktop PC Crashed and burned, I was looking for something more portable and Easy to store. So I hopped over to a local Dixon’s store who were having a sale (as they were shutting down the store) and saw the easy one silver for £999.Plus £300 for insurance to cover damage and repairs.
What I bought:- 1.2Ghz Celeron,256MB Memory, DVD Rom drive,(with option of CDRW which I did not take),56k Modem,20 Gig Hard Disk, Loaded with windows XP,Dvd Playing Software and Internet Sign up.
When I got it home it set up itself in seconds and was easily accessible. But after having it for only 3 weeks. The DVD drive whenever used overheated the entire laptop and shut it down. Then the problems started with the motherboard, so it had to be sent back to the shop where i bought it and they replaced the DVD drive and motherboard and also a fan in the laptop. They said it was due to the DVD drive overheating that the motherboard being so close to it had also overheated. But after £600 ( i took insurance, Always very worth while getting if you are buying a portable computer!)Worth of replacement hardware I’m VERY happy with it. I love my easy one silver and do not really have any complaints. I feel the DVD problem was just a one off system problem. Not one that i have heard anyone else having to deal with. So if you want something with ease of use and stylish to look at then this is a good one to consider.
bummer about it over heating im looking for a lap top and i think ill give this a miss cheers any way :)

it sounds like they have good aftercare! computers do overheat a lot, ours kept crashing a lot due to this, but if they issued you a fan that that sounds there will be no more of that little problem! good op - nic :)
