    Runs faster than 2ghz

    As much memory as possible

    Above is a thread I posted yesterday, that links a Lenovo Z370(2nd Gen i3), Samsung RV520 (2nd Gen i3) and an Asus X35E (2nd Gen i5) - all at £400.

    The Asus is also available at Comet with more RAM and HDD Capacity at £450 - and has it's own thread in here - and they were selling it at £400 in December, but have bumped it now. (Probably because you'd struggle to get 6GB RAM, 750GB HDD, and 2nd Gen i5 for £450 in any brand of laptop - but they claim it's due to lack of supply.)

    Asus and Dell also have Outlet laptops available on their own sites - that are meant to be worth a look - but I can't vouch for them - or any of the others.

    Thanks Glenn

    I'll pass on dell, got bitten badly there in past, but will have a look at the comet model, I got a voucher for them at xmas that will bring this machine within budget, will also take a look at the asus outlet, might get myself a bargain.
