    Okay, need to buy a gift for someone on a budget of £350. (It is for someone close, hence the bigger budget).

    I was thinking of buying a laptop, and I was also thinking of getting it from eBay.

    Check out this link please:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_s...=nc&_pppn=r1&_mPrRngCbx=1&_udlo=300&_udhi=340

    Out of this list, which one would you recommend that is decent speed and does the job for a) browsing b) watching videos c) skype/messaging.

    All feedback appreciated! And yes, it has to be from eBay or wherever else they accept Paypal, and yes it has to be brand new. Thanks.

    All i know is that I have used an Asus laptop for over 2 years, with never a minutes bother...

    And the price seems right as I paid a lot more for my Asus!

    Wow, didn't expect this much of a response. Thanks guys. I will wait for more feedback from other members and then tick off the least popular suggestions and then take a look at the remaining suggestions.

    Thanks again!

    I personally have the Dell Inspiron and it does all the tasks, medium graphics gaming, web surfing, video chatting, movie watching etc. I had a good experience and yeah a good customer care service, no problems till now. Go for the Dell Inspiron IMO =)

    Are you from UK? Because if not, import tax and VAT will run up the cost.

    Get a Toshiba, it's cheap and it doesn't disappoint.

    Buy the HP g6. My little brother bought a new one 1 or 2 weeks ago (an Hp Pavilion G6-2217sl with an AMD processor) with IM money for 300? (thanks to BHW!!! :) )
    It's really fast and silent and have dolby digital sorround and an Hd webcam!
    Got windows 8 , its starts in 5-6 seconds, shutdown in 3 seconds, good large keyboard and great led screen. It has a good wifi also (b/g/n).
    The battery works for 4-5 hours. 3 usb, white leds everywhere, hdmi and vga exits! Great price if you ask me :)
