My acer lappie (2350) from staples (we northern bastids dont have 
plastic) was 399 and is bog standard from the shop. It was originally 
bought to run ErWIn and openoffice, but I have used it for all sorts 
snce then (including as a portable PVR) and it have yet to let me down.

Ok it is a tad wimpy and heavy but as a cheap word processor that runs 
postgresql, carries 24Gig of audio books and Cleopatra2025 series1+2 I 
cannot complain :-)

FYI: I only hear complaints from customers about dell kit.


p.s. 1yr+ and still waiting for my first pixel dropout :-)

p.s. If you can wangle ~700UKP aldi are selling a noname lappie
with a one year no quibble money back guarantee. In this case you can buy, try for a month or
two (or more) and decide you don;t like it and get you moolah back.

Thier kit is a bit high price for my tastes but we have bough
GPS and other electrical goodies there and have yet to have
a real problem.
