Elonex ONE… will dispatch soon
If you read DoesWhat then you’ll know that we’ve been observing the Elonex ONE’s progress. The Elonex ONE is a sub-notebook and the UK’s first sub £100 notebook (not really, as they charged us £10 on top for delivery which wasn’t optional, so £110 really). We have had our worries, but it seems that Elonex might be getting their act together. We completed payment for the ONE a couple of days ago (July 9th) as did Kevin and Michelle (commenters at DoesWhat) which suggests that Elonex haven’t been spreading orders over time, but instead the process seems to be more of a bulk job.
Anyway, our confirmation stated that the device will be dispatched within 28 days which means that we should receive it before the 5th August.
We’ll keep you posted on that, in other news, you may have heard Elonex has launched the Elonex ONEt; this was offered to us when we completed payment for the Elonex ONE, but this would lead to further delays and we wanted to try out the original Elonex ONE because of its detachable touch screen. This is yet another competitor that will be put up against the likes of the Asus Eee range, MSI Wind and all the other ultra cheap, ultra portable laptops.
