Prices are in Euro.
Euro 449 = approx. £306
Euro 499 = approx. £340
I saw it listed in another post but no comments were made about it. I basically need a laptop for my daughter so I can actually use my OWN PC.

Laptop will mainly be used for Bebo, Msn Messenger and listening to music. Bebo would be streaming video in. (Unfortunately no educational software will be used)

Any comments or thumbs up would be greatly appreciated.

I find Dell over priced & under spec, but well built.
I went for Toshiba, great make, well built & 1st class support & customer service.

Virtually any laptop will suffice for those purposes. Maybe you want to consider the size and weight of the laptop since I assume she is younger (using Bebo).

I would personally avoid Sempron processors as their performance is quite poor and they can get quite hot.
What is your budget?

Thanks guys! Where's best place to get the Toshibas.

Hadn't heard negatives about Sempron before??
I don't really want to spend more than £350.
