there was a deal for cheap desktop the other day for 99 quid and the site had a load of cheap laptops on it as well....forget the name tho

It sounds like a Netbook could serve your purposes. I think you can still get the120GB Acer for about £150 new

If not a netbook or if £150 is too much, have you thought about 2nd hand?

/edit yep Expansys are still doing em for £150 (people eventually got them too! :P)

How 'dead' is it? Could you not replace the HDD? You may also be able to upgrade the memory if the HDD is the only failing. If you need advice on this route PM me.
