    Up to 1 hour and a half hour battery life

    and its a celeron, i'd steer clear love.

    Very clear!
    I saw MikeT post some nice Dell Laptops this morning I thinkk!!

    Here's the nice Dell--

    It's cheaper aswell!

    Nope! Dell much better!

    Aol have an offer and i'd prefer aol over orange.

    Two year contract get a free dell inspirion with 1GB RAM, 80GB Hard drive, wifiready, dvd writer, 15.4 widescreen + intel celeron

    I know its a celeron but its better then the one you want.

    upto 8mb download speed

    40GB bandwidth [download allowence]
    Free netgear wireless router - free conection

    Matt that is a decent laptop to say she'd only be paying £200 or whatever it is and its a sony vaio - if you dont want the aol offer go for the vaio

    with aol u have to buy the call package i spoke to them it works out £30+ a month....and im already with them and i dont get more than 1mb on a 2mb contract...

    i know ppl with orange and they get good speed...

    got a wireless router..

    19.99 for unlimited orange broadband...

    and i have to get one from PC world...so what one from PC world shud i get? lol...

    Oh dear. WHY?
    I avoid them like the plague!

    Avoided who vaios?

    My friend has that advent its a decent laptop, batterys the downside though, only lasts just over an hour

    I'd say get the vaio tara if you dont want to go for the dell deal

    PC WORLD!!!!

    and i have to get one from PC world...

    Heh, im not that keen on PC World, lets say as long as you have house insurance you should be fine, or take out their 'accidental cover' because if anything goes wrong they wont want to help and youll end up smashing your laptop like i did mine.

    Used they accidental cover, they didnt give me a new laptop they rebuilt it from the base up!

    I was tempted to shoot my krappy LCD and see if they give me a new one!!!

    Do you think they would?

    currys do they? ill have a look on their website....

    £200 limit i recon...depends how much i have when i sell my stuff lol

    The fact that Orange have to give away laptops to get you to go with them should tell you something.

    They were voted one of the worst ISPs out there, and you'd be stuck with them for 2 years.

    Are you a gamer like, would you need a decent graphics card or would intergrated be fine?

    Vista premium or basic? or even xp

    how much ram minimum

    single or dual core?

    im not a pc gamer...i have my xbox 360 for games.

    i generally use my pc/laptop for chatting to fasmily on msn. downloading music. putting music on my ipod. browsing the net. hukd surfing lol maybe watch a film here and there. i dont think i need a top of the range one. the one i have now copes with what i do on it (in the for sale forum) its just dated, i want a nicer screen and internal wireless and a bigger hdd.

    That sony vaio you chose is the best one for the price at PCworld, checking curry now.

    this one worth the extra … this one worth the extra £200??http://www.pcworld.co.uk/martprd/store/pcw_page.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@2100228542.1186089807@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccekaddliidejehcflgceggdhhmdgmj.0&page=Product&fm=null&sm=null&tm=null&sku=218560&category_oid=-27751
