    What Laptop to Purchase?

    Hello All,

    Currently looking around to for a laptop range of 600/900.

    The purpose of the laptop will be just Multimedia work, Microsoft Word Docs, MSN Messanger, Emails, WiFi Enabled, not really gaming or anything like that.

    Any idea's on what laptops i should be looking at? Any recommendations for bargains!

    Also i've got about 4/5 PC's laying around my house, that i wont to sell ... But am unsure of their worth ... Could someone help me, value them up? I've checked eBay, and there isn't any on there that are similar spec to the ones i have .. and am not sure if it against the rules to post what PC's am looking to sell ... to guage what they are worth ...

    Possibly a Dell Latitude 110L. Nice and sturdy. Or an inspiron 2200 for a bit less.

    I say to you what I say to everyone that asks me about buying a notebook:

    I'd rather buy a lower spec Dell/Toshiba/HP/etc notebook than a higher spec "supermarket brand" for the same price, purely for reliability reasons.
