/ What <£450 Laptop?
Anyone purchased one recently and have any useful comments on what to get and what to avoid.
2 years ago I was mulling over exactly the same thing... and all I can say is do not get a Dell.

- for mine, I saved money by not installing windows or office (am a linux gal) and not getting a fancy graphics card (not a gamer). I did spend the difference on an ssd though... Mine came to about £550.
My gf just got an Acer 5750... for around 450... Intel i5, decent ram and hard drive, and it seems decent... I would say go into curry's or similar first to test out the keyboards and the mouse pad, cause these are important and different people like different things.
