Following on from my previous posting 'looking for a laptop for my mum' I found this. As she only really wants wordprocessing capability it seems fine but are there any better new machines for the same price or less?
ASUS X58C LAPTOP - Intel Celeron Processor, 1GB RAM, 160GB Hard Drive, 15.4" Display, Vista Home Basic from here click here+
Just to follow up the machine that you found will do the job she wants just fine and you will probably find it hard to find a laptop from a reliable manufacture for under £300, unless you go for a netbook like this click here which is £236 at the moment with tosibas £30 cash back offer but if you doing a lot of word processing then a 93% keyboard and a 10" screen are probably not the best.
I have also read on a few other forums that this asus has been seen in a few morrisons stores for a cheaper price then this but that was a month or 2 back so not sure if they still sell them
