I bought a Fujitsu (before Siemens came along) It was a good machine, never let me down. I took the Fujitsu sticker off the front and lo and behold it says Daewoo underneath. the monitor that came with it was a Daewoo. Mind you it has been updated beyond all recognition now. But Fujitsu/Siemens is a well respected company

thank you both for the responses...will let you know how i get along

Don't forget you would still need to check out the specification of the one offered for £120 and the one you are bidding for. Let us know both specifications and perhaps we could give more comments.
