Second user or budget laptops

  ricvic 08:38 01 Apr 2003

Good morning,

Please could you take a moment to recommend your favourite sources for budget range laptops. I'm not after the latest top of the range hardware. Modest min spec. Perhaps refurb second user.

I'm already looking at morgan and at computerbargains in Manchester (from whom I have previously bought.)

Thanks, as always.

Morgan auctions click here

I've used both and they often have end of line equipment but with full warranties as well as second user with shorter warranties. (Although the 'new' sale of goods act might mean that you have better rights!)

I got a great deal, an Acer 529TXV for £275!!!!

I could possibly get some more as they were sold to boys at the school i attend and they are crap at playing games, so they sell them for cheap prices, next term i will try to hook you up to someone selling a laptop.

My one is 850mhz mobile pent 3, 128mb ram, 20gb, 14.1" screen, DVD, blah blah blah.
