I'm looking for something small/cheap for ds's birthday (he'll be 10)

I've seen an 11 inch Asus in Currys that looked nice but it only had a small memory.

Is there anything else on the market for that sort of money?

He already has a nexus for playing games etc.
But he'll need something for doing his homework on when he starts high school.

Tia.

I've just got this one which seems good for £300.

Thanks, I'll have a look at that one.

just had an acer delivered from asda at £300 with 4GB RAM and a 500GB hard drive, touch screen - looks like it does the job (replacement for DS1 16 who is absolute;y banned from taking the back off this one) www.direct.asda.com/Acer-Aspire-V5-122P-61454G50nss---11.6%22---A-series-A6-1450M---Windows-8-64-bit---4-GB-RAM---500-GB-HDD/000515356,default,pd.html

I've ordered the Acer one, thanks for your help.

Wow. I bought an Acer Aspire V5 last year- it's great- but that one, with the touch screen, is seriously good value. And less than half the price of a MacBook Air smile smile
