As Tripredacus said, it's a Eee PC.

A lot of such netbooks have Linux installed indeed, because the specs are quite low (tiny low-resolution LCD, a slow-ish Atom CPU or a 900MHz Celeron, a measly 1GB of RAM, a tiny flash drive instead of a hard disk -- much like a PC that's like 8 years old. no optical drive even) and not so well suited to run a modern version of Windows, and when you're trying to cut every corner (anything to save a penny) to offer them for dirt cheap, then a Windows license might not be too attractive.

A lot of people who buy them seemingly either end up putting Windows on them, or returning them (the return rates of netbooks with Linux is 4x higher than those running Windows). Depends what you're looking for I guess.

Cant remember the Spec of the laptop now, it was an Acer and comes with 1 Gig of RAM and 16 GB Hard Drive, cant remember the other specs!

It´s the Acer Aspire One indeed. The older version had 512MB and 8GB, I´m installing Windows vista Starter on them (not sold in every country).
