    Bit far for you to travel to Ashford, if your buying refurb I would recommend getting to look at it first or at least check the returns policy.

    Some are real good and some are real bad, for what you want to do you don't need high spec so you will easily pick something up in your budget. Most likely get something new for around the 280 to 300 mark

    what size you want skusey??

    netbook, 15" or 17"

    got some good deals at tesco at moment.......... get a acer netbook 10" (i think) for less than £200

    they are facing the tv's

    also get dells reduced down to £330

    You can have mine for £300.
