Can anybody recommend a Laptop?

Only have max £300 to spend, not a lot I know. But can anybody recommend or suggest a decent one for that price? I know sod all about them really. Will just be for general use, but needs to be fairly quick.
Pref with Vista, maybe windows 7 (but again know nothing about Windows 7)
Must have a dvd rw drive but I guess most do now? oh wifi would be a bonus too
Must be brand new also, although don't mind a refurb.
As I say I know sod all really so wouldn't know where to start myself.
Any help greatly appreciated :)

My Only advice is keep away if you can from Vista. Windows 7 is far more stable and user friendly

If you get a laptop with Vista with a free uipgrade to Win 7, dont use it until the Windows 7 upgrade DVD arrives,

Is that quite a good price for what you're getting then? The bit highlighted in bold, how much is it to purchase at the end of the trial? Thanks :)

Had a look at the links in the first post and found some helpful so thank you :thumbsup:

I've had Vista on my pc for sometime now and find it easy to use, is Windows 7 similar?
Thank to you all, rep on way :)

This is out of stock on the Asda website now and according to the HP website, is a discontinued model

Shame, as it looks decent

Yeh I did notice that it was out of stock online but they were selling this one in my local ASDA yesterday. Do you have a store in your area that might be able to put one aside for you?
Check TESCO online as well as I know they also stock Compaq.

Yeah i have quite a large store nearby but it's a question of whether they have stock. Tesco Direct has it for £339 which is decent... May try and find a voucher code of some description :thumbsup:
