    Went into one of the charity shops down town today and guess what i had??

    A laptop!! Is nothing special but its a great buy. Celeron M 1.5ghz, 256MB RAM, 40GB HDD, 15 inch screen, intergrated vga and wifi. Even had a Win XP cd and licence.

    The cost - an amazing £100 :D :D

    I swear the people in the place dobt know what things are worth,earlier this year i only paid a tenner for a massive scalextric set that was worth at least £60 second hand.

    Well done mate, I paid £399 + VAT for an identical spec one on Tuesday to use for work :o

    Yours sounds bargain tastic, might keep my eyes open for a cheap laptop for personal use.
