Looking for a new small laptop - nothing fancy or expensive but would like one that is reliable and can be opened completely flat. Any help welcomed. Thanks

'opened completely flat'

Why on earth would you want to do that?

The Lenovo T400 does just that - you may be able to find one on Ebay or a refurbished one. Image here enter link description here

redraver77 may want a laptop that opens flat to put in front of a connected monitor.

I too can't think why you want one that opens completely flat. Any laptop or netbook can be set to operate with the lid closed anyway. Maybe the only advantage I can think of is when cleaning the screen!

Never had cause to think about it before but have discovered that my elderly Fujitsu Seimens Esprimo actually opens flat.

May be worth looking at other Fujitsu machines as they can be at the lower end of the price range.

Lots of laptops open flat. I`ve two Acers on my desk, one does but the other doesn't. It all depends on the chassis design. Like cocteau48 I've got an old Fujitsu that does and I'm pretty sure some HP Compaqs have the same design feature. The problem however is identifying them before buying. No manufacturer seems to disclose this information on feature lists.
