Update: Now has 60Gb Hard Drive.
Dell are trying to tempt us this week with offers like free shipping or half price shipping, memory upgrades and free antivirus software.
My pick of the week in the laptops has to be the Inspiron 1300 yet again. Its still down in price a little for the basic celeron model again and with a little tweaking of the spec a nice 1.7 Ghz Centrino with 15.4 screen and other extras can be had for £419.50 or less.
