Which laptop should I buy ...?

  [DELETED] 07:43 13 Oct 2003

Hi folks

I'm sure this has all been done before but some upto date advice would be gratefully received.

I need to buy a laptop between £600-£800 Preferebly with a floppy drive as well as a CDRW.

I will be using it mainly for the internet and working on Word, excel etc.

I was looking at the Toshiba on offer in PC World - any thoughts.

Also pointers to any decent retailers on the high street or on the net would be appreciated.
