    Laptops and computers are being sold cheap as part of a government scheme to get people online.
    Laptop prices start from as little as £169 which i think is really good.

    I really need a laptop for my college work but i need something which is good for using things like photoshop etc.

    Has any one recieved a laptop from there and was it good/ speedy?
    The website doesnt show the specs for the laptop nor the brand so i cant find it myself.


    visit www.getonlineathome.org to check it out.

    Thanks

    "Celeron processor, 1Gb RAM, 40Gb hard drive" for the laptops.

    I'd imagine it would be quite slow for photoshop, but i'm not sure how cpu intensive it is.
    It just seems like a very basic computer really, and its not even cheap considering it took me 20 seconds to find a laptop which is pretty much what they are selling for £5 cheaper.
