I'm having great difficulty trying to find a laptop as a Christmas present for a 12 year old foster child which will be used for homework, general browsing, music etc. etc. etc.
I'm totally confused by the technical info, the little bit I've found out is I need something around 2gb ram, I'm not fused whether it's XP or Vista, tbh, the difference means nothing to me, although I'd prefer it to be a decent screen size.
I've looked at sites that sell laptops, but tnh, I haven't got a clue what I'm actually looking at.
If possible I'd like to avoid places like Comet / Curry's / PC World etc., etc., I'm hoping someone can recommend a good deal around about £250?
