where can i go online for the lowest price brand new laptop? Its for a relative who wants one for the basics, so a high spec is not important, although being able to run the latest microsoft word would be a good thing! it just needs to be new, durable, and with a reasonable size of laptop screen. playing dvds as well as cds is not essential, unless software is harder to come by in cd format nowadays as opposed to dvd. whats the minimum i should expect to pay? thanks for any help on where to go

Have a look at SterlingXS here; click here A pretty good spec Dell Vostro for £299 (1GB Ram) or £329 (2GB Ram)with one year waranty, and they also sell various brands of refurbished units.

Go for XP instead of Vista and a basic model will run well, with Vista it might turn out to be a snail.
