Have a look at the weekly magazine "Micro Mart", plenty of 2nd
user/refurbished laptops, from reputable suppliers, however, if buying
2nd hand check on the condition and guarantee on the battery, as it is
quite an expensive item to replace (as you know)
At the moment my temptation is to look for a laptop at long last but I
can't justify a new one. I might just hunt around for something second hand.
I don't want anything exotic but it must be running XP..
