    It's a capable little unit and good value I think!

    The home/student upgrade to office 2007 for 60 is much better value than the 20 for word 2003 though :/ I realise it's another 40 of course but you don't really want word 2003

    M, i clicked your link- are you determined on a dell? i've just got a 3gb, dual core processor 250hard drive, also has a web cam for 20 less from tesco- but it's a lenovo i guess. Depends what you want. The acer on there has a better spec than that too- it depends what you want- make versus spec

    Lenovo are great, though Tink may want to disagree at this point

    Lenovo bought IBMs thinkpad brand and has been manufacturing good quality laptops for a few years now

    I won't argue much, Keith. I didn't like this machine at first, but I have to admit, now that I'm a bit used to it (had it 19 months now) it's a work horse. I've carted it around the country, use it almost constantly (it's never shut off)... can't complain (well, I could but they won't give me a Macbook pro).

    A Lenovo for a good price will be a good machine.
