Looking for an ultra-portable laptop around £300

    Looking for a new ultra-portable for Christmas.
    Looking for something with a 12 inch screen, decent performance, decent battery life and around to 300 quid mark.

    The ASUS EEE PC 1201T is currently on top of the list, which I can get for £314.99 from expansys.

    Any info on better alternatives or a better price would be appreciated.


    2nd hand Thinkpad X61/X61s off Fleabay might be a good choice. I have seen them sell for as little as £200.

    Core 2 Duo processor has umpf and there are zillions of extras for it (high cap batteries/docks/external battery charger). Mine even has a built in WWAN card (mobile broadband).

    The Acer Aspire 1420P may also be an interesting option.

    It comes with a 11.6" screen but with dual-core CPU - in addition to that via Quidco/TopCashBack members are able to get it down to just under £250.00p.
