I bought an Acer Aspire One, load Linux Mint on to it and will do all you require, no problem! I paid ~£200 but was on at £150.

Don't fancy Linux? You don't know what you're missing wink OK, how about this one or this one?

Recommend both brands!

There are linux alternatives for most things. For Yahoo Messenger and MSN I use Pidgin on linux - works fine, there are alternatives.

only netbooks offered so far and tbh i think they are kinda [censored]..

If its just very basic websites and some word stuff etc then yeah, your good to go with one but i had one for a short time and took it back for a refund, it was using the Atom N450 and it fell over playing videos from youtube. was useless.

For £350 you can get a 15" laptop that has a better CPU and more RAM that will handle videos etc with no issues

this here:

Bargin right there smile

or this, not as good, cheaper but will still do the job

http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/advent-quantum-q100-06...

but the emachines is better

hey,

thanks for all the great advice, got myself this one in the end, however i got it from comet for £269.

Only question now is would I be wasting my money upgrading the ram from 1gb to 2gb?

cheers

The upgrade is well worth the twenty quid.
