Which Entry Level LapTop,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

  Furkin 12:55 15 Nov 2007

my son is after a first/entry level laptop & wants to spend up to £400.
He wants: up to 15.5" screen > at least 1gb ram > 120 gb hdd > dvd r/w > wireless > card reader > prefers Pentium > vista > pre loaded with MS-Word & Excel & pos dvd prog.
Any ideas or recommendations please ?

Have a look click here
I think you'll struggle to find a laptop with MS Word and Excel pre installed,for under £400, if software is included it tends to be MS Works, which is a cut down version of MS Office.

Thanks guys,
it looks like he'll be going for a fujitsu 5515 or 1718 - £399.
Just a matter of finding a reliable retailer now - tried 2 so far,,,,
Pixmania haven't replied to 2 e-mails
E-Buyer have messed up the payments !

My son works away, so is not desperate for a few days,,,, & loads more shops to try.

Thanks for the advice - resolved
