    I like ebuyer.com. There's an Acer and a Toshiba in there at the moment for £320.

    Thanks SpikeyB and lodore!

    I have looked ebuyer.com, it has some intresting bargains. I have been to dabs also but i think sometimes dabs can be more expensive than some other sites. I am looking into byuing acer.

    one thing i forgot to mention it that acer laptops come with norton.
    but there is only a desktop icon to install it.
    so its not installed.
    which means all you do is delete the install icon on desktop and install whatever av you want.

    I would recommend COMET (online). Bought my ACER from them in February.

    Here is the thread I started when I was on the hunt for a laptop.

    btw Norton AV came pre-installed. Whilst there's nothing wrong with Norton (as an AV) you can uninstall it without a glitch.

    I would recommend Acer or HP models; take a look at ebuyer/dabs for some good deals.

    Evesham Micros are a little more expensive, but IME, their support and warranties are superb and they have free delivery.

    He didn't specify Windoze compatible. Ergo, I suggest a MAC. Shazam!
