I'm looking for the best spec laptop i can get for under £300. Am looking for core 2 duo, RAM upgradable to 2gb+, 100gb hard drive and dvd-writer.

Have been looking for a while now refurbs probably best bet but can't seem to find one that meets my spec.

Any help will be rewarded with rep.

Cheers

You could have mine for £300 if you like.

I recently downgraded it to XP from vista successfully.

The model is: HP Pavilion dv6809wm (American - don't worry, it's all PAL compatible)

Specs:

AMD turion X2 2.0Ghz
3GB DDR2 ram
120GB hard drive
15.4" wide screen

Wha'dya think?

Ebuyer's cheapest Core2Duo is about £350 and they're usually competitive.

Core2Duo laptops did get down to the £300 price point a few months ago. But, since the £ started its slide against the $, they've edged up towards £350 again.

You might pick up a refurb for around £300 - both Currys and PC World often have some at that price. I doubt you'll find a new one at your spec for the price you want to pay.

Ok cheers, I suppose its pot luck as to whether you can find a good refurb in stock

Hi there,

I just bought a Fujitsu Siemens laptop (refurbished one but practically new as it comes from comet) from comet auctions this evening 1.7 Ghz intel dual core, 80 GB, 2 GB ram,1 MB cache and wifi with DVD RW for £255. May be you can have a look on comet auctions too. For further pointers like comet auctions, you can have a look at the deal requested by me at
