    hi mate
    i'm also looking for a cheap laptop and so far i've seen 2 for sale. comets website shows an acer laptop with built in wifi and a 15" screen for £348 and in this weeks sun newspaper, tesco had the same laptop for £299 but not sure of the screen size on that one.
    i'm off to find a tesco that has them in stock today so i'll let you know if i find one.

    I'd be interested too, but it'd need to have a DVD rom drive and be OK at playing DVDs and divx's (not HD)

    Handy as a portable DVD player when on holiday and for backing up photos (as well as wifi browsing)

    I got a second hand Dell Inspiron 8200, and put in an Intel 2200BG mini-PCI WiFi card I got from eBay. It works like a charm!
