    The new Fujitsus are very robust - I have three and I am very impressed so far
    Or how about one of ICT direct's nice Lenovo i5's
    Built like a brick - last for ever and at that price you could afford extra warranty to take you up to three years

    Yeah the tosh, the head got 2 for his kids and askied if i would set them up with a few programs on. Even from the outset one seamed a lot faster than the others.

    Im thinking either the thinbook or the lanovo which we nearly went for last time.

    Whatever you get make sure it's got a TPM.

    Our T410 lappies have been hugely popular this year. We've sold hundreds!

    I use one for work when I'm out of the office and I love it

    Let me know if you need a quotation.
