Kingsmanor, your a marvel.

When I opened the thread I was expecting the questioner to ask for a Laptop, in that price range, that would play the latest games!

Don't forget though, it would be best to post here what you want the laptop to do for you, and I'm sure that more help can be provided (apart from the latest games!)

Just for use with running MS Works and surfing the net.

A basic use but with a reliable build quality and a decent warranty support.

Most of the regular suppliers are over £500 and Dell only offer a 90-day RTB warranty.

Burning CDs.

It seems that I shall be using this at home, plugged into the mains, so what I should be looking for is a desktop replacement laptop, according to the advice given in PCA.

Any suggestions? Putting the above into Google does not produce anything.

Seems most laptops have shared Sound/Graphics cards so about 512Mb RAM would appear to be necessary.
