So, Susan's laptop is dying, and I could do with a laptop-sort-of-thing sometimes, so we'll probably buy one soon. Budget is limited (£300 max), requirements are fairly basic (web, email, unhurried compiling of LaTeX and C). Does anyone have something like this they want rid of, or know where to obtain such? This could be either something very cheap and basic for the short term or something closer to the budget to last a bit longer. The ASUS Eee PC would almost work as the latter, but the keyboard and screen are much too small.
