£200 to spend on a laptop/netbook - what's best?

    I've got £200 to spend on a laptop/netbook, so I need to try and get the best bang for my buck. Usual home use, nothing too fancy - but perhaps something that I can use for a couple of years. I'd be interested to see what's out there.

    Anybody got any suggestions?


    Im happy with my dell inspirion mini 10. Got all i need!

    [FONT=Verdana]Based upon your budget you would be able to buy a brand new netbook or a used/refurbished laptop - do you have any other specific requirements? Is £200.00p your maximum budget amount?

    BTW have you checked out the deal threads present on HUKD?

    [/FONT][FONT=Verdana]Edit - Here's a couple of recent netbook deals if your interested.

    Compaq Mini 110c - £179 @ The Carphone Warehouse - HotUKDeals Forum

    EXPIRED - Toshiba NB200-11L Netbook 10.1", 9.3Hrs Battery £189.00 Delivered after cashback @ - HotUKDeals Forum…776
    Note - It is still a live deal but the price was pushed up - if the cashback comes through it will keep it under £200.00p.

    [FONT=Verdana]No probs mate and hopefully that will get you pointed in the right direction.

    If by 'usual home use' you mean like a desktop but easy to hide away then a netbook is an awful choice as the screens are very small for portability. You'd be far better off with a second hand laptop.

    What is best choice of the five picked. and which ones and how can they be changed to mac notebooks..]
