    Where is the best place to buy a cheap computer/laptop?

    Can someone reffer me to a good site to buy cheap computers/laptops, I have a budget of £100, pretty dire situation i'm in at the moment, I am looking for something that is capable of smoothly running flash. Or if someone has one to sell to me, thank you very much.

    You would be better off getting a free one from freegle or freecycle and using your £100 to upgrade it.

    Also tier1online.com, if you can add a little bit more the Lenovo T61 \ R61 are built like tanks and a Core2Duo is still plenty enough for Windows 7 etc

    Can you order from there for private use though i.e. if you're not coming from an education organisation?

    If you contact them they are usually happy to take a cheque and once cleared will dispatch the goods to you
