    Having a load of X130e here, I would certainly choose the X140e. They're tough, great battery life, good value, and plenty quick enough if you stick SSDs in them instead of the HDD.

    So they are not quick enough without?

    They're fine. I just wouldn't spec anything now without an SSD - I find any HDD too slow, let alone a 5400rpm one.

    Keep an eye out on eBay or on here for trolleys. Two went unsold with a 50 quid starting price on eBay yesterday and when I got rid of ours a couple of years ago I managed to get £70 from a local school for one and a parent with a van took the other one for scrap and gave the proceeds to the PTA. I'd been trying to find a good home for it for a year by then.

    Don't actually want xxx x 600 so miniumm spec is 768 vertical screen resolution

    One supplier has recommened Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E145 at £345

    Anyone got any?

    Hi @SimpleSi,

    Thanks for posting. We do an aluminium backed HD 1366*768 11.6" Netbook with touch or non-touch screen that you can spec with RAM, SSD, Wi-Fi and O/S or a larger Intel Bay-trail M (Dual or Quad core) 15.6" Widescreen 1366*768 Netbook with a brilliant 9.5hr battery life that can also be self specced to requirement as well as the 10.1" ruggedised Intel Classmate Netbook available on our website; all are very reasonably priced and suitable for school use. If you fancy some proposals sending across please feel free to get in touch at colin@very-pc.co.uk and I'll be delighted to help you choose.

    Best,
    Col
