Don't know if this has been posted before but if you're after a new laptop / netbook you could buy a refurbished one from PCWorld / Currys etc and get a trade in on an old one.

£150 for a working laptop under 4 years old
£100 for a working netbook
£50 for anything over 4 years old or not working, needs to have charger and battery (this one sounds like the most value for money to me)

The trade in laptop / netbook needs to be one of the following brands

* Acer
* Advent
* Apple
* Asus
* Benq
* Compaq

* Dell
* Ei Systems
* eMachines
* Fujitsu
* Gateway
* HP

* Lenovo
* Medion
* Packard Bell
* Panasonic

* Samsung
* Sony
* Toshiba
* Unisys
* Viewsonic
* Zoostorm

I was sure they offer a tenner towards postage of your old stuff too, but I may have been dreaming as I can't find that particular line again.

HAHA I've got a machine running windows 3.1 here, and £50 for that sounds impossible! :D
Oh, and it's worth noting that refurbished netbooks at pcworld cost £200, and laptops start from £290
I thought it was a pretty good deal if you've got a knackered / ancient laptop lying around. Even the price for working stuff isn't that bad when you consider ebay / paypal fees which is where most people would flog 'em.
Refurbished stock from PCWorld / Currys comes with a full warranty and is usually brand new.

That may be true, but from what I can see, their prices for 'refurbished' laptops are mostly more expensive than you can buy them for brand new elsewhere, largely negating the 'trade-in' deal, which I am sure they will wriggle out of if at all possible. I have had less than wonderful experiences with PC World in the past and I frankly wouldn't trust them with something like this.
refurbs...think I d rather spend a few quid more and get a new one...invariably refurb is a euphamism for it broke, we fixed it, we're reselling it
Refurbished laptops start at £250, netbooks at £195. Maybe not the cheapest, but not that bad either.
This may seem like a silly question, but is there anyway of browsing the refurb laptops online?

I guess probably not and it's store specific but thought I'd ask....
I don't know what to make of this, as I explained to them that my battery was not working very well - but still did work, and the woman went "err.... it'll be £100." Seems like they make it up as they go along.
It's not a bad deal I get as much for my old netbook as I would by selling it on ebay, minus the hastle. I get a refurbished computer with a full 12 month warranty.
