    My sister bought one on ebay. She had the chance to get a Fujitsu Lifebook B112 for £99 from http://www.lowcostcomputer.co.uk/hom...used%20laptops but they were out of stop by the time she phoned me. it seemed like a nice little machine, sub notebook with a 8" touch screen which ways half of a normal laptop.

    The only snag with a S/H laptop is Battery life. You gonna have access to power in lectures?
    You could be looking at the same sort of money as your entire budget for a replacement battery.
    Considered a PDA with some sort of Notepad functionality? Or a good old fashioned mini tape recorder?

    Now i know this may be seen as a bit controversial, (especially posting it what is essentially a gadget and technology forum,) but whats wrong with using a pen and paper for notes in lectures??

    Not only that but I imagine like me alot of hexusites can type faster than they can write.

    Also digital notes can be searched/sorted backed up easier etc.

    We had a bloke at uni on our course who did all his notes on a laptop, bloody annoying for those that sat around him, clicking and clacking away. Most lecturers had pre-printed notes, could then add little extra bits that came up during discussions. Some places (not where I was) also provide class notes/guides you can download, that way you get any diagrams as well. Problem is whats offered is location and lecturer dependant, my mate had electronic notes at Canterbury.
