    Hi all,

    Daughter wants a laptop for her 11th birthday in Mid March.

    Around £200 but must be mint. Not a netbook as she wants a large screen to play Mine Craft!

    Thanks.

    JJ

    Price and currency: £200
    Location: Abergavenny/Gloucester

    Mrs just bought a new one so her old one needs to go

    It's a Fujitsu Lifebook AH531

    Core i3, 8gb ram, 60gb SSD, windows 7

    Worth around £250 mint but the front plastic around the LCD is damaged and needs replacing but apart from that it's been well looked after it's just a case of keeping an eye on eBay for when 1 comes up for £10-20 and 10mins to fit

    Let me know what you think

    Forgot to mention it uses Intel Wifi Link 5100 AGN for wifi and USB module for bluetooth, also I could never get the lan to work, I think this is prob driver related or something I have done wrong. I will retest it when I fresh install windows

    Hi mate. Thanks for the honesty. Going to pass as it's a birthday present and needs to be perfect.

    No problem but just be wary when looking for one as many are not so honest with their descriptions and I dont think you will get perfect online, try looking local so you can see what your buying ;-)
    Cheers

    Hi,

    I have an HP Envy 13 if that is of interest. I can take some pics this evening, review and spec here: HP Envy 13 review - PC Advisor

    It has a Core 2 Duo, 13 inch 1366x768 glossy screen, ATI Radeon Mobility 4330 and a case made from layered magnesium and aluminum (very macbook-esque). I can confirm ram and hdd size this evening but pretty sure its 3GB/200GB. It also comes with a 'slice' battery which slots on to the bottom and doubles the battery life. I have just done a factory reset of Windows 7.

    I'd be looking for £200 without P&P (i.e. p&p on top). I'm based in London.

    Let me know if this is of interest.

    Cheers

    Chris

    Ok, turns out it is 250GB hard disk so that's a bonus. 3GB of ram and Core 2 Duo L9400.

    Also comes with suede effect hp case. Forgot that the slice battery has a couple of rubber feet covers missing. Still sits flat on surfaces and doesn't slip around. On the other hand the trackpad is in better condition than I remember.

    By my kitchen scales I think postage will be about £20. Pictures attached, let me know if you are still interested.

    Hi both.
    Apologies for the delay been manic in work.
    Acer trsvelmate is a no I'm afraid just looks a little to businesslike.
    Seems she also wants touchscreen now so the 200 pound budget is out the window!
