New PC/Laptop Advice needed

  ryp11 14:32 15 Jan 2007

Hi all,

I'm getting BT broadband in this week & i'm after a new Laptop or PC as my old one is pretty much dead!! A Laptop would be ideal coz of space but i guess PC's are better deals. I don't really want to spend over £400, but i can stretch at apush if need be.

I'll be using it for the following, so it won't need to be a huge spec:

Internet via broadband
Downloading music etc, so a decent size hard drive
DVD/CD rewriter
I won't be playing any games, except online poker
General office stuff

Thanks in advance,

Thanks mate, i'll have a look at these. I'm not too clued up with specs anymore, so i was hoping someone could advise what i sort of spec i'd need.

click here at £449 (you have to select the 1 yr warranty option for this price) is excellent and will do more than you need. You can always add an external HD (320Gb for aound £80 to store more although it has a 160Gb HD which is pretty big). click here
can be picked up immediately from PCW and will be more than you need and is £409.

Thanks for the links guys, they look ideal. Do PC World or Novatech do the 'buy now pay later' deals? If not does anyone else do these?

Most everyone does something along those lines. They are very profitable for the Seller

I've found a couple of places that do 'buy now pay later' - Dabs & Mesh. If possible can someone hae a look at these and advise if they are good deals please. Hopefully these should easily meet my spec.
