His current one is pretty old and it's WHACK, he uses it for writing but I borrowed it and it's just excruciating - browsing is more or less impossible and it's sooooo slow.Don't want anything too 'spensive but hoping there might be a few bargains in the sales. Anyone seen anything good? I get so befuddled trawling the net for them.
He's got an acer right now btw. Good size (i.e. vair portable), just a pile of poo in every other way.
Before giving in and buying another one try CCleaner. Download it from FileHippo and let it do its magic. I rescued a very slow laptop with it, the owner was amazed. Honest, it's the best free tool available.
Also you could try an OS reinstall. Clearing all the crap out of a PC will usually make a massive difference to its performance. (Think how good it was when brand new).
