I am a brand new mature student, and I've realised that a laptop (as opposed to my desktop in the room where small children play) is something I really need.
I want something right at the budget end of the scale - I have an abosolute maximum of £400 to spend. IT must be from a major retailler, and either new or a manufacturer referb. Any suggestions as to what is going to be most reliable. It will be used primarily for studying - I'm not a gamer or anything, but it must have a DVD ROM drive, and I want Windows 7 rather than Vista. I've been looking at entry level Toshiba Satellites, or perhaps Dell Inspirons. I would love a Vaio referb (E Series) but I think the chances of one coming up in a week or so are fairly slim. Any thoughts?
Toshiba is reckoned to be the second most reliable manufacturer of laptops after Asus click here so any of the Satellite series would be a good choice. You can pick and choose your options from the Toshiba UK website click here#$=&xcUI=profile=neutralprofile;&_1sz/banner_id/helpmechose2/
