Need to buy a cheap £300-£400 Lappy

Hey guys.

My sister's b'day is coming up and my parents want to buy her a laptop.

Now my parents are willing to spend up to £400 for a laptop fitting these criterias:

2GB RAM

Minimum 120GB HDD

Would like a dual core processor but a celeron or the AMD equivalent will do fine.

Windows Vista Home Premium or Basic.

BRAND new plz

That's nice but I forgot to mention that £400 and strictly £400.

My parents dread on spending £100 on something for her let alone £400 lol.

To be price specific, I would say £370 for a lappy as most I have seen between £300-£400 would be either £320, £340 or £370.

Its not exactly a laptop its very small just over 10ins but its very good and mobile! 160Gb hdd, 1Gb of memory but it can be upgraded, mine has Win7 running on it just fine (it comes pre installed with XP) and has a 1.6Ghz Intel Atom cpu which is fast and low energy battery can last upto 7Hours.

Samsung Netbook NC-10
