Sub £300 Laptop

  funkey_monkey 22:39 18 Jan 2011


I need to purchase a laptop for an elderly relative who uses is predominantly for browsing the internet - reading emails, looking at photos etc.

I've got a budget of £300 to get her a new machine to replace her previous item which got trashed by accident.

Is it possible to get a reasonable laptop for her needs sub £300? I would appreciate some pointers please as I cannot find anything on the main sites.

Thanks in advance.

Not under £300, but only £10 more - Lenovo IdeaPad G550 click here.

The others in the sub-300 category only had 1Gb RAM or no OS - see click here=[200+TO+499.99]&limit=10&page=1.

Will she be OK with Win7? G
