View Full Version : Need a cheap laptop.
03-05-2011, 10:24 AM
Any suggestions where I can get one? Its for a schoolgirl and they do not want something to expensive due to the possibility of theft.
Preferably not windows 7 home basic or starter.
Must have a numpad on the keyboard.
Can not be a netbook.
Min 2GB RAM (I would prefer this as 1x 2GB module as they may want to upgrade), can be 32bit.
Thanks in advance.
There was a nice samsung laptop at makro (centurion) this weekend for R2999, something like a T4500(could also have been a t3500, but i think it was a t4500) CPU, 2/4gb ram and 320gb hdd...

shhessh when i saw cheap laptop , i was thinking R1500 max
i had a few for sale a while ago and Murphy's law , nobody wanted them for R1500 , but then after 5 months it got sold and now everyone is calling me for the same laptop ..
it was a hp nc6400 , i was able to get them from a company selling off thier old laptops.

mm, i can get a few IBM T60 and T61 for R2700 and R3700, new acers for R3400, and then old ones for like R1000 give or take.
laptops have been coming down a lot you can even get dells now for under R4000, which is good, i like the dells, hehe
any way i still prefer desktops though, you just get more umf for your money
