    New budget laptop

    Hi all. I'm looking for a new laptop just for office and internet etc so nothing special. The only real requirements are 500Gb HD, HDMI out, and a card that will do 1920 x 1080so I can connect it to my Samsung SyncMaster B2230H 22" widescreen monitor. My current laptop is a Samsung NC10 and that fills most needs fine so I don't need anything really powerful just a slightly bigger screen.

    I came accross the laptop below at £369 can anyone suggest a better deal for the same or less money? I'm open to refurbs but would like a 12 mth warrenty.

    HP G62-b28SA - 4GB memory & 500GB hard drive - Blue at cheap prices | PC World

    Cheers.

    That is not a bad laptop to be honest, you could speak to ICT Direct they may have something in stock that would suit your requirements for less..

    How about one of these?:

    Lenovo Thinkpad SL500 review from TechRadar UK's expert reviews of Laptops and netbooks

    For £300 second hand? It's got 4GB DDR 800 RAM, a 3G Modem, nVidia 9300m GPU and extended battery on top of its base spec (also has HDMI out). let me know if you are interested. It's a beast of a machine for the price.

    Is that a laptop that you're selling for £300 DB???

    I think a 250Gb HD might be a bit small that's the only downside, well that and no 12 mth GT.

    Cheers.

    It looks like it is Chris's laptop that he has... seen him use it a few times

    Lenovo Systems are generally well built so if nothing has gone wrong with it now, i doubt anything will for some time!

    Hard Drive could be upgraded no problem i would of though if you needed it to be bigger
