    How much would a laptop cost with these requirements?

    Processor: 750MHz or better (1.2 GHz or better HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)

    If upgrading from a slower processor, consider purchasing a new system, it is usually more cost effective.

    RECOMMENDED

    Hard Drive: 20 Gigabytes with at least 10 Gigabytes of free space

    Modem: 56Kbps Internal or External modem

    Getting more RAM would be a much cheaper option. However having a laptop is handy as well and you can get really good spec ones for good prices now.

    I'm not sure what to do.

    Can you point me to a laptop that will provide the requirements at a decent price, thanks.

    I will definately rep you, I alway's forget :oops:

    I'm not worried about rep.

    Have a quick look through Deals...........all of the laptops in there will be of a high enough spec for what you've put above.

    With laptops now it's as much about what they look like as to what they do..........you can get them in all colours and allsorts. But you should find a very good one for what you want for around £300.

    u should be able to greatly increase them specs on a lappy for under 300
    I picked up 3 x toshibas, dual core 1.8, 200g hdd, 2g of ram dvd rewriter, webcam, wifi blah blah for 250 a piece

    I have used laptopsdirect.co.uk before and had great deals from them also, they do some gr8 grade a/as new deals for under £200 with warranty

    argos link dont work btw, you can get better than that for that price tbh, try looking on other websites, dont stick to argos, currys, pc world etc, look at places like novatech, or go direct to manufacturers and see what they have.
