I know a couple of people that are quite happy with their refurbished Acer One they got from here http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/
One friend ended up getting 4 in different colours so the family each know whos is whos.  I don’t think any of them run Edubuntu on the so don’t know if it 'just-works'.
