    Budget: £300...Roughly $600
    OS: XP dosent have to be but, it is for school work so anything with an office like program would do

    Id advise you to get a macbook. but on a budget of £300 wont get you a macbook. (I agree apple's hardware is too overpriced.) You may be able to get a really good ibook G4 from ebay for that price.

    But a Windows Laptop will be much cheaper.

    Id recommend an Acer too. Acer Aspire 5315-051G12Mi Laptop LX.ALE0X.004 - Acer Products | Acer Direct.co.uk

    Edit: just realised thats the same Laptop as danny above Lol Just that i found it on Acers site.

    1GB or 1024MB, same thing, 1GB = 1024MB, 2GB = 2048MB, and so on.

    That and the fact is that more ram doesn't mean a faster pc, you need a pc with a processor that can use the ram, otherwise it's useless.

    Anyway, check on newegg or tigerdirect.

    You're not going to get a brand new, brand name PC with XP. Microsoft forces (hp, dell, etc.) to use vista.; (especially for $600).

    So I would look into toshiba, acer, but don't expect anything under $700 that isn't pentium d dual core.

    Newegg.com - Acer Extensa EX4620-4431 NoteBook Intel Pentium dual-core T2310(1.46GHz) 14.1" Wide XGA 1GB Memory DDR2 667 120GB HDD DVD Super Multi Intel GMA X3100 - Laptops / Notebooks

    that should meet your standards.

    I forgot to add, What about an Asus Eeepc?

    its cheap, small and can have linux or windows Xp installed. (it can even run OS X Leopard by hackintosh)

    It supports up to 1Gb memory. And has OpenOffice installed (word processor, spreadsheet etc...)

    Check out the Dell Vostro 1510, it's pretty nice, meets your requirements except it doesn't come with xp.
