have a look at DELL OUTLET refurbished dell's from dell…bsd

    £55 off and free del at the moment

    If you are travelling a lot, look for something a little on the compact side: I'm not saying go for a tiny eeepc, but perhaps a vostro 1400? (which is 14" instead of 15.4") or even the 1201 whenever dell decide to launch it over here.

    If you want to leave the spec exactly as-is, then this samsung is bang on spec and in budget:…874

    or if you're willing to drop to a 160gig hdd, then you can save £100 with this fujitsu…122

    You may also want to consider speccing up a dell vostro laptop on the main site: anything over £299 (ex vat) comes with free delivery, and you get to spec exactly what you want in there: - although note that the upgrades to 250gig hard drives seemed expensive (160 gig was fine though)

    If you don't need the gaming then a £300 laptop would easily fit your needs (DVDs, MP3s, browsing, etc).
    I can never understand why people spend double than what they need to on laptops.


    Thanks for the link, when I had a look at all of the Inspiron Notebooks … Thanks for the link, when I had a look at all of the Inspiron Notebooks out of 200 on offer only 1 had a DVD drive (the rest were CDRW) and that was an XPS at £700-odd!I was looking under the "CD Speed" heading.
