Hi. Will someone give an absolute beginner some advice on a particular laptop please.
It is to be used for study- Word, emails etc, but not music downloads or gaming.

Intel Celeron M laptop
512MB memory
Windows Vista Home Basic
15.4 widescreen display
W1F1 enabled

Any advice appreciated.

HDD size?

This looks kind of like the one on offer from Orange for £19.99 if you sign up with them for 2 years. The spec is ok for what you want it for, you don't mention hard drive size so I'm assumming something like 80 gig and theres no mention of price either.
I don't know the company that makes these laptops so I cannot comment on what they are like but for what you want it to do it will handle no problem.
Personally I would want to see it myself, see what it feels like, how the keyboard is etc.
I'm not very knowledgeable on laptops but if I was getting one I'd get a Toshiba, I just feel they are very well built.

but if you are not too fussy about waiting for everything to load, it should be fine.
