OK i'm after a cheap new laptop with XP Home on it. Spec is not that important or upgradaebility. Going to be used mainly to use MS Word & Excel and a bit of surfing.

Saw this advertised on TV and thought it looked particularly good value, as it's really quite up to date technology. click here

Others too, on the same site.

The choice is overwhelming really. Any laptop will be able to what you are asking. Personally I rather like the Toshiba ones, have a look here click here but do take care and read the descriptions as some are new and some are reconditioned.
Only thing I can recommend is try to decide on a budget and then see if you can get something about that price as laptops vary from about £300 to a couple of thousand. You say you want a cheap laptop but how cheap. £300 ish £400 ish £500 ish?

5 of the machines in DieSse's link for a client's office, and I have to say I was very impressed - real value for money I thought, and three weeks down the line the client agrees.

I agree they seem good spec for the price but the many reports of cases cracking put me off - I went for a Dell and so far so good!

I'm with Al94 on this. They are good for the money but the cracked cases on some Fujitsu Siemens does put me off as well.

I've bought three Toshiba laptops from Morgan Computers. They are refurbished but look new, boxed and in excellent working order with case included in my case. Next day delivery - outstanding.
