Looking for a new laptop for Sister

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My Sister is after a new laptop for her College work and DVd watching.

Her price range is £300-£400 and she isn't interested in a notebook.

If possible she would like a HD screen, but not vitally important, the main priority is her college work.

Can anybody suggest something with ~4Gb RAM, dual core CPU?

Thanks.

I don't know about UK, but in NZ you can get SB powered Dells for 850nzd (just over 400 pounds.) Definitely have a look at the Dell site, my cheap Dell has proven extremely reliable, although it is outdated now (Pentium dual-core.)

Here is my exact laptop i think fits criterion, and price range.
