Laptop search

  Bike-it 19:39 11 Dec 2008

I'm looking to buy a laptop for my son for xmas but i am on a very tight budget. it must have at least the following spec
Dual core processor
2mb ram
120 gig hard drive
17" screen or maybe a 15.4"
windows vista premium.

where is the best place to shop, would also consider a refurbished laptop but it must be supplied from a reliable company.

When you say your budget is tight how tight do you mean? much easier for us to find you a machine if we know your max price. Oh and 17" screens tend to really push prices up so if i was you i would stick to the 15.4" option, will normally get a lot more hardware for your money.

If you are considering a reburb than i would suggest that you make sure that it is a factory refurb rather than something like pcworld/dixons/currys refurbs which get reburbed at their own workshop and in my opinion are never done properly and are terribly unreliable.
