Best place to buy a cheap Windows laptop

Hi,

I need to buy a cheap windows 10 laptop to run Dirac Live. I’m normally a Mac user and it’s been a long time since I had my own windows machine, or since I bought one. Unfortunately my 2009 Macbook Pro is too old to run Dirac, and lugging the iMac down from the office is too much of a PITA. I can’t justify buying a new MBP as the only other thing I would really use it for is running the Harmony remote software.

Last time I bought a windows laptop I got it from PC World and it was chock-full of junk software. I remember going through a deleting loads of stuff, but I don’t know enough to know exactly what I can delete and what needs to be kept.

Can anyone recommend a good retailer (preferably online) where I can get a good VFM Windows laptop, with a minimum of unnecessary junk/clutter pre-loaded on it.

Thanks!

Ebay can yield some used ex-business laptops. The IT recycler type sellers usually re image them to pretty stock windows. Or check out some such sellers directly by googling.

Just had a quick look and that seems to be an excellent suggestion, thanks. :thumbsup:
