buying new low-end laptop

  loser7 17:56 19 Nov 2008

Hello all.
I am going to buy a new laptop as a gift but only have a budget of around £300. The laptop will be used for internet access most of the time so no need for advanced graphics or big hard drive. A net-book would be ideal but it needs to have a dvd re-writer so they are out of the question. I would appreciate any links or suggestions as to where i may find good value, low-end notebooks.
Thanks for any advise.

click here 50 squid more but an excellent computer that will be more than enough for you. It is also extremely well built.

I'd say get the netbook if it's ideal, & buy an external DVD-RW drive - e.g. for £40 click here. They also do 'slimline' drives for ~£10-20 more, but are generally slower than the standard-sized drives. G

Thank you both. Sounds like a good idea Crossbow7 but maybe go for the Toshiba in GANDALF <|:-)> link. It looks very good value to me.
Thanks again.
