I'm looking for a laptop with at least and 80GB hard drive and 1GB RAM for as low a price as possible in the UK. It will be mainly for taking with me on trips for storing and viewing photos, surfing the net and to keep me occupied on long journies etc.
It doesn't need powerful graphics, as I won't be playing games on it much and it doesn't need to be capable of anything but the smallest of post processing tasks as I will do most of this on my main PC. A built in wireless adapter is desirable but not required. I would like as long a battery life as possible.
I am willing to save money on the operating system by running Linux, as I am familiar with it. The ASUS Eee doesn't have enough storage for what I'm looking for and I'd rather not carry around an external hard drive with me.
Any ideas for models or places to buy?
Thanks for your help.
I've been looking at the Acer Aspire 5315 (http://www.ebuyer.com/product/139023
). Does anyone know if it's any good?
