The other half is fed up of my desktop (it died again and I'm in the process of recovering it) and has threatened to drop it in the bin and buy me a laptop. She's pointed out some £400 17" jobbie at PC world. So, to those in the know, is it a good deal? If not, where should I be looking? (I only do the basic, e-mail browse, word/excel type stuff on it. Maybe watch a DVD once in a while, nothing too demanding.
Also, with the state of the economy right now, are laptops expected to get cheaper or more expensive?
