Computer on a budget

  Cara2 11:24 13 Feb 05

My sister is looking for a computer. Not a huge amount to spend - looking around £500.

Mainly, she would like to do word processing, surfing via broadband and download music maybe.

Anything caught anyones attention, recently, that fits the bill?

more than capable of doing what she want

The best place to start is go to any PC World store, look all at her price range and get one she likes. PC World's price is very competitive now and any £500 will do more than what she want

If she does not mind of dealing with guys she does not see, she can buy from Dell or Mesh. Just look out some special offers Dell send out with newspaper etc.
