Hi all!

I'm after a laptop for under £300. I needs to have wireless lan so i can connect it to my router and for it to look good and not be too big or heavy.

Thanks a lot!

Oh and Windows XP if that's OK.

don't think you'll find much for under £300, try Dell if you want Windows XP but you're looking at least £399 for starters

correct me someone if I'm wrong

Well I think you will find it hard to find it hard to buy a new laptop with xp now.

This is the best I could come up with on the £300 budget.


this is the best I could find £329.07 inc VAT + shipping

go through Quidco for an extra 5% cashback

just make sure that you have clicked [COLOR="RoyalBlue"]1 Year Base Warranty - Collect & Return[/COLOR] for the best price

if you could just find a Dell free shipping code you'd be quids in!!

Thanks a lot people!

I think I've fallen in love with a ACER ASPIRE 5315, and it's only a tad over the 300 mark at comet but it's out of stock.
