I have a strict budget of £300 to spend on a laptop. I don't play games, just listen to music, watch pwn and trawl STW, Ebay on the tinternet and the odd dvd on nights when i should be working.
My way of thinking is to go for a refurbished / dicontinued machine. that way I get my 12 moinths warranty and anything broken will be fixed and therefore safer than buying second hand.
I've seen a Compaq Presario 15.4" 2.13ghz celeron with 3gb memory and 120gb hdd. In my book this pretty much fits. But are they any good or is there anything better. I am a complete donkey when it comes to 'pewters so any advice will be appreciated and taken as gospel.
