HELP! Packard Bell MX37-S-200 laptop for £299 @ Currys - good deal??

Hi all, I'm not much of an expert on computers, so I thought I'd defer to you lot on this one.

I've seen the Packard Bell MX37-S-200 advertised for £299 at Curry's (also available from PC World). I'm looking to get my other half a laptop for Christmas for under £300, but I wanted to check that this spec is reasonable before I buy. He only really needs it for web surfing, watching DVDs, etc.

No. of Firewire Connections 0
Other Interfaces Integrated Speakers
Battery Type Li-Ion
Software Titles Included SKYPE, CREATOR 9

Any help would be much appreciated!

Sorry, here's a direct link:

For the price I would say that's a good buy.

Should be fit for purpose as well.

Get some more advice from others though because I'm not an expert.

Thanks :-)

Just discovered it's the same price at Dixons - and I've found a 5% off voucher which takes the price down to £284.05.

Tempting...... Just wish I knew my stuff!
