Their available for £300 HERE! Be quick if you want one theres only 10 left! :-o

Only thing to note is theres no OS with this laptop just accessories and driver CD. But who cares? Its cheap as chips and has;

1.8GHz dual core T3000
4GB RAM
250GB HDD
built in webcam
built in wireless reciver
DVDRW
LAN port
USB ports
integrated audio
+ all the usual guff

Essentially this laptop is worth about £450-500. The battery is 6 cell, so should be good for about 4-6hrs mobile use! I'm unsure what kind of audio processor the laptop uses, but it must be a HD codec.

Dude, I couldn't go 4 hours without eating. My metabolism is so bad, that my food is digested while its still on my fork! And pizza.... wow man, me and my friend can kill a pizza pie in less than 5 minutes.
Maybe thats why I am always broke....
LOOK! It says gullible on the ceiling!!!

If I was to buy that computer jamie linked any chance I could swap the dual core processor with my quad core?

Not that I can afford that computer in the first place. If god exists he can always make me happy and buy me a very good computer :mozilla_smile:

Don't know as the mainboard isn't listed. Assume the mainboard is crap.

On Topic: That laptop I listed did not turn out to be as good as the description made out. With a 64bit OS all 4GB was seen, but only 3GB was accessible. The chipset is also very rubbish and only supports single channel memory configurations and the on-board graphics are extremely poor, couldn't even handle the rubbish 3D match view in Football Manager. As a result the POS has been sent back and I changed it for This instead, which is a much better laptop. Just have to put a X2 Turion in it and its as good as a C2D.
