    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.

    Well dont take my word as gospel but for your budget I’d reccomend a Dell if you can get one. Cheap, reliable, robust and value for money.

    If you could strecth to that, tis v.good value for money.

    The one you mentioned sounds fine, but that dell has a better processor.

    Buy a second hand one and run Ubuntu on it – I sold my old Sony to a mate for £300 (single core, 512mb, 80gb)a year or so back, I installed Ubuntu on it and its way faster and nicer than my new work XP AMD64 Dual Core with 2gb of ram.

    He is the same – bit of music, intermanerd, emails and letters – Ubuntu is great for that.
