    Laptop for >£350

    {It should read <£350! Note to Admin; please change.}

    Hoping someone could help spec a laptop/notebook for 350 or less. Netbook screen size is too small so the Lady in question is after a normal sized 13" to 15" screen.

    Must have windows 7, wifi, half decent battery life and be able to browse the internet and run word really. After that its all price performance/build quality.

    Thanks in advance.

    Use money saved on budget to upgrade RAM if you want better performance.

    Thanks Kalniel. 195 minute battery life too!

    I had a quick nosey around tesco; couple of dual cores :-

    Acer 5332 T3000 3GB 160GB 15.6"

    Toshiba L300 25G T1600 3GB 160GB 15.4"

    They say 2.5hrs each.

    This one looks like it wins the battery stakes (6hrs).

    Acer Aspire 5410 Timeline 3GB 250GB 15.6"

    Yup, but you specified it must have windows 7 (I assumed you'd want to avoid upgrade schemes)
