New PC

#2
I am typing off a Sony Vaio and have to say that I am not that impressed with them. Lots of money for not much more than one half the price. I'm no expert on the 'latest' thing but I would be tempted to buy a billy basic workstation PC and a netbook for the same price as the one you have highlighted.

Thanks for the contributions, my techy mate has the big brother of the Sony I linked and cannot fault it, maybe do some extra on-line work to save up when current project is finished, cheers all

Now that Stirling's satisfied I can hijack the thread ...

Looking at getting a new laptop, something small and light (around 13" screen). Doesn't need a super duper spec, something not too shite but not too expensive. I was looking at the Toshiba Satellite series (specifically the T130-16W). Anyone had an experience with them/able to recommend them?

Thanks for the replies everyone .I'll have to look into them when I get home (work computer Nazis wont let me on anything with an online shop)

Stirling - already checked that thread but I'm after something a bit bigger than a netbook to be honest.

I'm a Mac convert. Having had an iPhone for a couple of years. I thought i'd explore getting a MacBook. After much soul searching and a bit of scrimping and saving I brought one. It's a joy to use and just works never any glitches and takes about 20 seconds to put up and close down.

I would never go back to anything with Windows on again. Go play with one in your local Mac store or PC world.

Soz 640. I know how tough it is to key by on money mate but I really scrimped and saved. I brought Tesco Value food / drink and went to Liddel. bloody hard but I did it in the end.

I even picked up the cardboard coffee cups in Macdonalds and peeled the stickers off just to get a free cuppa.

It took me a long time but I used the computers and internet down the library but kept out of Diamond Lills just incase the bells and whistles went off !

Good luck shippers, get the best you can for your money mate.
