Looking to spend £300 on a laptop

Hi everybody
My wife is wanting a laptop for Christmas...I can go up to £300 and no more!!!
I know she wouldn't use it for gaming...she would basically want to surf the net and store music/photos and use it for work occasionally (spreadsheets word pro etc) and a DVD RW would come in handy
Can anyone recommend anything at all?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

try dell outlet or get a refurbished/returned one from dixons ( put refurb in search)

dixons did have a 2gb 17" packard bell about 2 weeks ago for £299
yep we got a 2gb 160gb avent for £239 and a 17" still available today was £279-less the £10 discount for spending over £250! They are both really good..the first is gloss black and the 17" is black and silver. Look really good as well as good specs.
I ordered from Dixons but pcworld have the same-dont know if there are codes for them tho-but advantage if you dont like it you can return to a pcworld store, whereas Dixons have to collect it and send another..
Dell outlet stil have the offer till midnight of £55 off and free delivery. Its a good place to look. best bargains tend to show up late in the evening.
Thanks for your help guys...just weighing up the pro's and cons now before deciding which one to plump for!
You can have mine for £300.
