    Can anyone please recommend a budget Laptop for about £300, i know it ain't going to be much but decent memory, HDMI, mainly used for Web Browsing & TV Calibration. Could even be refurbished but with a good warranty.

    Many thanks
    Barry.

    PS Screen size doesn't realy matter.

    You could look at the Dell Outlet as you'd get best value from one of their refurbs. Free delivery at the moment and that means an Inspiron 15 - 1545 would fall in budget, good dual core processor, 4GB RAM etc.

    Like this one:

    But if going new there isn't much choice for sub £300, one of your best choices would be:
    Buy ASUS X53U-SX278V | 15.6" LAPTOP - Laptops | Comet
    Processor isn't as good as the Dell, but for a new laptop, the price isn't bad.

    I just purchased a HP g6-1253sa 2.4ghz i3 4GB Ram Windows 7 64 premium. It has a 15.6" screen and cost me just under £320. It was a returned model but works fine and comes with a 2 year guarantee.
    I use it primarily for wordprocessing and iTunes for my iPhone and iPod. It is an integrated graphics job so its not overendowed. But it does come with a 500GB 9mm SATA Hard drive.
