Hi, I want to buy a cheap laptop as a second PC. What sort of specs should I look for to get a reasonable performance? Will be used only for web surfing, watching BBCi, online videos, etc.
I recently had Virgin broadband installed, and am using an old Pentium III lappy on my home network. It's a painful experience! Everything takes an age to open, and after about an hour of surfing things virtually grind to a halt. Also, the one USB port is broken, and I'm desperate to get something with a bit more oompth!
I've been looking on Ebay, but the specs, like Pentium M, Pentium 4 etc. mean nothing to me :(
I don't have much to spend, but hopefully I'll be able to get something a bit more useable.
