You can up it to 4gb of RAM and it does pretty well with everything you list (as long as you don't expect blazing speed). I got mine off Ebay for ~$250 USD and the memory upgrade was only another $30 USD. So far less than 300 pounds.
Basically, the E-350 is a step up from the the C-60/50 and would be faster in all respects. That said, I wanted the additional battery life so went with the C-50 (I only use the netbook when travelling anyhow, so flat out performance wasn't much of an issue - I have another laptop and a gaming desktop for that).
Those specs sound about right...except for the dvd writer (no netbook has an internal dvd drive) and i seem to recall mine has 64-bit windows 7 home premium. Trust me, home premium is way better than starter.
Hi I have actually found this on offer at PC World for £299 it was £499 so has £200 off at the moment and I think its a better spec than the acer please let me know your thoughts?
