I was looking to purchase a cheap laptop. A work colleague recommended this so I went for it.
This laptop is built by IBM, it is the probably the best spec that you can buy at this price. The laptop is solid build. It looks same as laptops that cost twice as much.
I am not thrilled with Cel-M 370 1.5GHz processor and memory is not enough at 256MB. You need double that, that will cost between £30 - £40.
Hard disk is 40GB, it has CD-RW/DVD and 15".
The best feature is WLAN and Bluetooth
The system is preloaded with XP home edition which on its own costs £60.
Price of the laptop is 418.77 inc VAT at Ebuyer.
I am very happy with this laptop.
It has a battery which lasts for 4 ½ hours.
The laptop is very silent when you run it.
I recommend this laptop because
it has wlan and bluetooth and it is virtually silent.
I would recommend at least 512 memory. The processor is adequate for the spec. Plus the build is of quality.
