    Opinions On budget Notebook.

    What are your thoughts on this, only play old games but i run many apps.
    Heard that Lenovo build quality is good plus bluetooth saves another sticky out bit of plastic.

    Seems to compete with dells etc, £500 is budget.

    P.s i want to run vista.

    Hmm... that does look like a good deal if it's 1gb up from 512mb. The site doesn't make it clear. I'm also interested in one for the boss if Lenova are a well-renowned make... I've no experience of them myself.

    I tend not to buy notebooks from clueless mugs with a stripy uniform, they can stick to beans & stuff.

    My tesco's seems stuffed with there cheap wares.

    All our machines at work are Lenovo - laptops and desktops - they make quality kit.
