Hi guys,

Me and the mrs are moving in together in a month and rather than having two pc's we have decided to keep one and have a laptop to save space.

We are on rather a tight budget as the thread title shows - £300 would be our absolute max!

Anyway the laptop will only be needed for word applications, email checking, internet shopping etc.

Could anyone recommend any good budget laptops with this criteria in mind - I really don't have a clue what constitutes good value for money or a good spec :confused:

The only one we have in mind at the moment is this one;

Buy ACER RECONDITIONED 5315.075 | 15" widescreen laptop - Specification | Comet

Seems to tick all the boxes for her requirements and is a good price...

Thanks in advance guys!

The Dell outlet is a great place to start. Also have a wander around places like PC World to see what offers are on as well as supermarkets, who often have some great deals on that don't get a massive amount of advertising.

Don't be afraid to buy second hand either, there are often some great deals going in the For Sale section here ;)
