    I am looking to buy a laptop for my fiancee's birthday. Tesco are doing a deal on a Dell Inspiron 1525 Blue T3400 for £349 (the link is below)

    Dell Inspirion 1525 Blue T3400 2GB 160GB 15.6" Laptop - Tesco.Direct

    I normally like to do lots of research before buying something electrical but I don't have much time on this one. Can anyone tell me if this is a good deal? Or is it an old model? Any other suggestions for a similar price (up to £400).

    I doubt she'll be using it for much more than surfing the web, word processing and watching the odd DVD (and hopefully i'll convince her to let me install Cham Manager!)

    Thanks.

    Intel® Pentium® Processor for Mobile T3400 - SLB3P

    Your most taxing application is Football Manager - it will be more than enough. People generally over-estimate what they need for merely browsing the internet and typing up documents. Just look at Netbooks and the comparatively slow Atom processor for case in point

    Although if you branch out into say photo editing then the power will help smooth things along

    You could possibly look on Dell themselves to see if they are running any deals
