Hi, i need a laptop so i can keep my business dealings separate from my main pc, i've just started up my own business.
Not looking for anything special as long as it works and if half decent, i have portable hard drives i can use if the HD on the laptop is small.

looking to pay around £100 - £150

I have a Toshiba satellite 1410 laptop, some scrapes and marks over it but runs well.

Its a 1.8 ghz celeron processor and its similar to the spec here except I have just installed a 20gb Hard drive as the previous 30gb one died. I have also upgraded the ram to 512mb and installed an internal wireless card.

Its also just been returned to the factory setting with a fresh install of Win Xp home (legit) as the license is on the case. Its got a very decent battery, after installing battery bar it only indicates a wear on the battery of 6.3% which surprised me as I have had week old laptops showing more wear on the battery. The only other downside on the laptop is a small mark on the screen. Its got a dead pixel and someone at some point has obviously tried to press the screen to fix it. It can show as a finger tipped sized darker area on the screen on bright images.

Looking for £120 delivered if you are interested then I can get you some pics later.

Spend the extra money and get a warranted laptop from currys will do exactly what you need. Refurbs are from 179.99 up.

hi, interested has it got the mains adaptor with it as well?
wondered how bad the dead pixels are, not going to be gaming on it so its only for paperwork really, would you go closer to £100 for it?

Cheers

I'd split the difference and go £110 ?,

There is only 1 dead pixel that I can see, I just like to be as descriptive as possible when I sell anything. I hate being disappointed myself when something is not as good as I feel it should be.

It is a pretty decent laptop and runs well. I'll get you some pictures up and try to show what I mean with the slightly darker area on the screen. There is a PSU with it so it is ready to go and as I mentioned it is a pretty decent battery.

Right above the cursor is the darker area on the screen, again prob being hyper critical.
