PostPosted: Wed Dec 16, 2009 2:39 pm 
I need to find the cheapest new laptops available. Does anyone know of any good sites and is it possible to get a 13 inch+ screen for under £200?

Thanks!

Go to DABS website


http://www.dabs.com/articles/landingpag ... -4681.html


and look at their 'Budget Friendly Laptops under £300'

a Compaq mini (10.1" screen :cry: ) is £219.98 - you'll be hard pushed to find a 13" at the price you want.

Also, be VERY careful that it's got the programmes on you want - basic computers/laptops have very little in the way of software on them.

For this price would imagine you are going to need to make some compromises - have you worked out minimum requirements?
Have you thought about second-hand from local computer shop - might get more for your money & can take back if doesn't do what it should.
Dell online outlet store used to have customer returns on it but that was some time ago.

A month or so back someone posted a link for a website that sells computers to school pupils at a discount - I think you just had to select the school from a dropdown list - unfortunately I can't remember which forum it was posted on or what the website was called but maybe someone else will.

It was this www.software4students.co.uk but I think they may just offer discounted software.

We recently got an Acer very cheaply from Tesco and it has (so far) been excellent.

We have 3 laptops in the house and with all of them we have had to load microsoft word/excel etc on separately. We got a 3 licence version for about £70 online but it is an added cost you need to keep in mind.

I got a second hand one from a small shop in the town near us. a reconditioned IBM from some office which had upgraded. Great though and perfectly good enough for me. Nice and new is all very well but it doesn't last and if it saves a couple of hundred quid then why not?
