My daughter has been given permission to raid her bank account to buy a laptop. She plans to use it for internet surfing, music listening & downloading, word applications for school, storing digital photos and playing some games (not necessarily in that order).
I have done a quick bit of research for the sub £500 bracket and found two possibles -
1) Acer Aspire 1642zwlmi at £479.99 (Comet). 15.4" widescreen, Pentium M735A processor, 1gb RAM, 80gb HDD, XP Home.
2) Dell Inspiron 1300 at £499 (Dell). 15.4" widescreen. Pentium 735A processor, 1gb ram, 80gb HDD, XP Home.
All very similar but would welcome advice regarding these or other sub £500 laptops.
Why a laptop, a pc with lcd scren, wireless mouse and keyboard will give much better value for money, ca be stowed away and resists the temptation to take away from home and possible theft or damage. click here You may need to buy display, kbd and mouse separately
