There is some utter rubbish being written here. The laptop is perfectly good and they retail for around £550/£650 but with a better processor. For the use of 99% of the population the Celeron processor is more than adequate. If the offer costs no more than normal broadband, even with a 2 yr contract (you will find that many people have been with their provider for 2+ years, including myself) and if you are happy with AOL (as many are) the laptop will be great as a primary use machine or for the children. Don't listen to processor snobs.
