The cheap and decent ones are probably best brought second hand.

laptops, even used ones, aren't cheap, full stop, really.

is the cheapest new one, and is fairly decent. certainly will fulfil all a student's needs.

I got a laptop for £220 off ebay for uni - it does everything i want and it runs xp. Just do a bit of research, have a look around and work out what you want

dont get a laptop because they are the top target for thieves, get a desktop because they are better and cheaper.

unless you are moving it around a lot then there is just no point. I've needed to move mine once since i been here and that was for the winter holidays. the same money spent on a laptop could be spent on a much better desktop computer.

i have friends here who have bought laptops and they haven't moved them once since they have been here.
