Second hand Laptop
, Sony Viao
It is difficult (if not impossible) to upgrade a laptop so when people require a new one they often sell the old one off and buy a fresh.
This means that there are many second hand laptops available that may only be a year old. They may not be as fast as newer models but will still successfully run the majority of applications.
Like with many goods a second hand Laptop can probably be found on ebay and better still you can register free.
