You dont say what your budget is, but you are not going to get a new laptop for much less than £300.

Buying second hand is always risky, particularly if you do not know much about laptops.

Even recon laptops can be around £250 to £280 mark (they often are not recon, they are usualy just old models - 6 months old say - that the shop are trying to sell off.

Places like PC World and Currys do recon. Here is the recon (refurbished) site for PC World, they do seem to have a couple at the £220 and £240 mark but the rest are £270 to £299 and above.

Here is the Currys refurbished site, and they have some at around £200 and slightly above (just noticed many of the cheaper one are out of stock)

http://www1.euro.dell.com/content/products/features.aspx/4x_vostro_a860?c=uk&cs=ukbsdt1&l=en&s=bsd - or the fabled £230 vostro, basic but has the dvd drive (not a dvd writer) - delivery delays on this though . .


But when you add VAT and delivery it comes to £293
