New or refurb for laptop

  joey0301 12 Jun 11

Hi, I'm looking to get a laptop to use for studying, running CD roms, watching DVDs, internet/email, not gaming but I'm likely to have a few things running at the same time.

I would like to pay £250-£300. I would love some opinions and advise on the ones below I've found and anything else anyone can recommend.

Also is refurb a good option?

For around the £300 price you could buy brand new, with a full 12 months guarantee. I've seen adverts advertising for around the £299 mark, but just can't remember what and where it was, not too mention despite what you've said what specs are more important to you.
