They may know of any particular requirements of the Uni's own Network. Also of any local offers.

Plenty of options out there,but would advise if going for a Vista machine...look for something that has 2GB of ram.

I take it no gaming intended ?

I guess you require the machine for just basic internet and email and MS works with a dvd writer is wanted for your needs.

If so,have a look at Dell.You will normally get free delivery included with good sales and after sales service.

Though do your research first as you can haggle with Dell a wee bit.
Find the machine you like,then compare this with others they offer and then ring the sales team and try to save a bit of money.

Just an idea click here

from Staples. If the offer is still on.

My son is happy with his. I don't think it is particularly high spec but adequate for most needs. Perhaps the more experienced can comment?

Here's the link to Hp click here

also, don't forget to take out the staples award card for a few free points.
