Pretty cheap and entry level. Celeron are older and slow, not as power efficient either. Smallish hard drive to modern standards, no webcam... depends what you are looking for.

Works out at £304.56 inc VAT and delivery using the 20% code.

Reckon you should be able to get a bit more bang for your $

Slow CPU
Don't Bother with 64 bit version of windows as there are compatability issues and the laptop is only running 2gb RAM so you won't gain anything.
No Webcam
Small Hard Drive
I bought a Dell 1720 inspiron just before Christmas with 320GB Hard Drive, Integrated webcam, Intel Pentium dual core CPU from Carphone warehouse for only £329.99.

I would wait and keep looking

You can afford better than Dell at this money

I think this deal is good for a laptop @ £300 as it includes Windows7.
If you want cheaper go for the Vostro 1520 which is £276.36 after applying the coupon. EXPIRES FRIDAY
