    Desperate - can someone recommend a laptop please

    Hi all,

    Please can someone suggest a nice laptop for around £350?? I'm currently using a Dell Inspiron 1300 but after dropping it and getting repaired some time ago it's now sparking off the A/C port and has melted the connection for the adaptor. I'm now running off battery life...... H-E-L-P.

    Thanks

    mainly just playing on the internet

    Do you need a full size one with a disc drive? If not look at some of the net books floating around. There are some bargains to be had.

    Not bad, but to run vista more than 1GB of RAM is recommended. But that's good for a cheap laptop :thumbsup:

    Yeah it'll be a case of 2 or 3 screws and thats it. Most laptops are easy peasy to upgrade RAM. Just have to make sure you buy the right RAM for your laptop, but if you look at the stick that's already in it, it will tell ya :thumbsup:

    This one is an excellent deal:

    But doesn't have much of a warranty!

    How about a nice Compaq maybe CQ40-214EM or a CQ60 ???
