Suggestions please as to where to go for a Win 7 laptop. As I don't want to spend a lot of money I'm guessing refurbished rather than new. Needed for my non-computer-savvy brother in law who just wants the basics - web/email/photos, etc. He's a bit heavy-handed so nothing too new or nice! Windows 7 because I'll be IT support and I don't get on with Win 8.
You could also try your local, small, high street, computer shop for second hand laptops with W7 already loaded. I purchased [in Glasgow] 2 reconditioned laptops [HP and Toshiba circa 2008 models] for £150 each a few months ago [one for my sister, who is also 'a bit heavy-handed'] and both have worked well with no probs. Each came with a 6-months guarantee.
