The laptop doesn't require to be anything fantastic, as it'll mainly be used for word, excel, internet and watching downloaded films.
Would prefer one with a decent Core Duo processor and at least 160gb harddrive and 2gb ram, anything else is a bonus but we obviously want to get hold of the best deal. :)
Oh and a brand name that has decent customer service incase something goes wrong, so would prefer to avoid companies like Advent and Acer.
Thanks a lot in advance. :)
