    >and have word.

    No laptop is going to have Word included (unless it is a 60 trial of Office 2007). Microsoft Word and Microsoft Office are both very expensive.

    You can download and install OpenOffice for free and that includes a Word Processor.

    There have been LOADS of requests for laptops on here in the last few weeks. Set the topic above to "Computers" and then scroll through and you will find loads of them, or search in the top right for "Laptop".

    Here is one from a few days ago

    hotukdeals.com/ite…old

    we got one in woolworths back in april for my daughter in pink was £299.99

    not got micosoft word but something similar

    refurbs at dixons currys or pcworld-you have to check all the time as they sell fast at around £280-worth looking!

    like this one...
    or if you get a cheaper one get a fancy skin?

    I am after a laptop and my sister is. Does anyone know of a place that may do a good deal for two. Anywhere i try to barter now they just laugh and say they cant do it anymore
    maybe i need to be more forceful:oops:

    This one was posted today - ideal for teenage girl but maybe too expensive @ £500 ? >

    no budget as such but the cheaper the better, shes changed her mind, it doesnt have to be pink, any colour is fine.......

    but they sell super-fast...get it now if u want it?? £239

    also our advent refurbs both came with word etc all on. Worked straight out of the box wireless. Bought from Dixons.

    Can I seriously suggest you don't get a pink one. You'll pay more for the fact that it's that colour.

    She'll probably like the novelty factor for a few days, then when that fades off and she has a go on someone else's faster laptop she'll wish she had one of those.

    Also, pink laptop + cheap budget = NO! My girlfriend's sister was seduced by a laptop being pink and pretty cheap, the motherboard packed in last month which will cost £150 to fix. It was only a few months old.

    Oh, and like someone else said, save yourself a significant amount of money and install OpenOffice, which despite being free is every bit as good as Word, and fully compatible with Word so she can do work on there and take it school/college/uni or whatever.

    dont understand then why ours have had them installed on all 3??????

    I have no idea. Are you sure they weren't just trials?

    I've never heard of anything coming with anything other than an Office trial or the vastly inferior Microsoft Works.

    If there's a deal with Word in then go for it, as long as it doesn't effect the price in any way. With OpenOffice being free though there's no need to pay for Word to do homework on.
