Hi all. I would like to buy a sub £200 laptop primarily for browsing and burning DVDs, ideally with Windows 7 as this is for my mum who is used to Vista so Windows 8 or 10 may be too big a leap. Please could anyone offer any options or websites that you could recommend? I am willing to go above £200 if necessary and will consider refurbished laptops.

I did try ebuyer but did not have much luck.

Thank you, B

Wow, thank you so much for your help!! Quick one - Am I right in thinking that the Intel Celeron is a verrry old and poor processor?

Yes.

£200 is not a lot of money. Another £100 will increase your options immensely

Looks OK.

Be aware of the "Special Value" "Not in Stock" trick
