Right my sis is off to uni and she is looking for a laptop, max really about £450 as she will also need a mouse, bag and i recommended some nice 2.1 speakers too. I don't know much about lappys but i know that core 2 duo pwns, but there seem to be different ones. Higher model number with lower clockspeed but higher cache, or lower model number with higher clockspeed and lower cache. Havent a clue, but narrowed it down to these few: 1.) http://www.pcworld.co.uk/martprd/st...m=null&tm=null&sku=893043&category_oid=-27751 2.) http://www.currys.co.uk/martprd/sto...fm=1&sm=0&tm=0&sku=218560&category_oid=-27405 3.) http://www.pcworld.co.uk/martprd/st...null&sm=null&tm=null&sku=690558&category_oid= 4.) http://www.comet.co.uk/cometbrowse/product.do?sku=407038 5.) http://www.comet.co.uk/cometbrowse/product.do?sku=405221&cm_sp=FeatureEnd-_-Laptops-_-position1 THe cheap acer in no.5 looks pretty good for the price, except the crappy 80gig Hdd. any help would be appreciated as we are going to buy it next week. Im probs going to order it online as it's cheaper, plus i can go through quidco and also look for discount vouchers.
