    Cheapy Laptop Help!

    I'm looking for a laptop for my dad, and usually you're 10 times better than I am, so I am here to request community assistance.

    Requirements:

    Cheap
    13" screen or larger
    Cheap
    Don't particularly need an OS
    Cheap
    Mobility irrelevant, will never leave the house/bookshelf
    Cheap

    (in that order)

    It will be used solely for web-browsing, so even something Atom-esque would probably be adequate, as long as it's not totally rubbish.

    The closer to £200 I can get it, the better. Any [helpful] advice will be furiously thanked.

    Student computers also do some cheap laptops. I picked up a business class HP for £225 last year, over the moon with it.

    Re: Cheapy Laptop Help!

    I have a Thinkpad sitting in front of me, so checking would be a little redundant
