|Hi Newbie, where are you in the UK?|
If you are considering used laptops, as an example, I was in Wembley High Street yesterday. Near Wembley Central Station were at least 2 shops selling refurbished Laptops that looked very nice and for very reasonable prices. e,.g. >£200.
Although I think it unwise to buy such from a remote outlet.
Also 8gb of ram is probably unnecessary and, depending on pc and/or os, may not even be used.
Good Luck - Keep us posted.
