click here but your last sentence makes me think that a lightweight notebook is perhaps not the best choice for an environment in which something more durable might be wise.

Have a look at one of these for £220. click here
We picked one up and it's great. Runs linux but you can put windows on. It's very fast to load and comes with just about everything.:)

paul - thanks, but is this a bridge too far
a very interesting solution which we will look at
the report and comments also very instructive - ja

My wife has just taken delivery of her Asus EE (late Christmas present but they were in short supply because of the demand. You would not know it was Linux except there is nowt like Outlook Express and you have to access your email through your ISP's website. She loves it and the learning curve is pretty short. You do need smaller fingers than mine, though!

Error in last posting - on reading further through the manual I see that it has Mozilla Thunderbird email client, allegedly better than OE anyway.

venkyb & shellship - many thanks for your contribution - venkyb link particularly useful - I have now bought Dell XPS M1330 - it was a first suggestion - it looks very promising and seems a good value for what it offers - thank you all
