    A cheap netbook? I got a netbook recently and i'm really pleased with it. Gives you the option of using your normal internet connection or buying a mobile one. You can get mobile ones for a 1 off fee rather than subscribing.

    Popcorn Hour is media player, plays HD files straight to my TV from its hard drive, so any files i download i make on my laptop i can watch on my TV (hope that makes sense),

    Did think about a ipod touch bought my daughter one last year and it was great, and im not convinced about a MS Wind, read mixed reports with them, (and i dont know how to add replies to multiple quotes:? as im sure you have guessed

    Why not buy a Fruit Machine or Real Arcade machine....

    I have many contacts that can help you ! Ultimate for the spare room or living room !

    If you have a spare £4000 i'll give you my Twilight Zone Pinball....

    maxmix

    PS On second thoughts I could not replace it easily, so you would need to buy your own....

    Well ? You decided yet ?

    maxmix

    If not you could send it to me the $$$ and i'll give you some answers in the PIC QUIZ

    Buy a purple laser and be the coolest kid on the block: thinkgeek.com/gad…47/

    With the change you could buy me a preorder of the Ghostbusters video game, thanks in advance

    I have everything you mentioned (including popcornhour). :thumbsup:

    Been debating lately if it's worth investing in a Netbook as I like the idea of an ultra portable laptop for checking emails.
