    My laptop recently packed in, motherboard is broken according to the guy at the shop. He went onto say that it would be not be worthwhile for me to pay to get it fixed.

    So where in on the web should i go for a cheap laptop that isn't shite? Budget would be around £200 - £300.

    Any places to avoid?

    Cheers.

    My only worry would be if they have a warranty with them or not? Just incase it breaks down after a few months.
