Excerpt: I have today ordered this Laptop so I will come back and give a full review when it arrives. For now I can say that it looks like a great specification for a very reasonable price and looks great. I will let you have my full opinion when I have had the chance to use it!

Excerpt: Please bow your heads and stand a moment in silence to mark the passing of my old laptop, an Acer travelmate 230, which, after four years and one too many blows to the head, finally gave up the ghost and went to laptop heaven with some of my holiday photos still on the hard disk.
Pros: Cheap, great display, superb performance, great spec
