Windows XP laptop for £300


My Mum needs a laptop but has only just got to grips with Windows XP. She only needs a basic machine but I've only managed to find vista machines for £270 upwards. The cheapest XP equipped machine is a £330 Vostro from Dell.

Has anyone seen a £300 or so XP machine?


Crikey, finding laptops with XP is getting harder by the day

I tried checking morgan and sterlingxs - who do a lot of refurbs, but sometimes get end-of-line stock: and didnt have any joy - if anyone knows any others who do similar you may get luckier.

It is amazing how many are beign sold with vista and only 512 Ram. XP isnt the best on 512 so I've no idea how slow it is wioth 512 on vista!

I agree entirely, but I am fortunate: I'm a university student, and my department has a full MSDN subscription, so we get all MS software (barring office and windows mce, I think) for nothing, so only have to factor in the hassle of installing.

Try business section at dell.co.uk....got a cracker recently with XP and 1GB ram for £300 delivered....think it was called integra
