    My niece's Compaq CQ60 is dead - put it into the repair shop and he says the motherboard is fried and it'll cost about £150-£200 to repair.

    The repair shop do refurbished laptops and given the fact that she's just killed what was an expensive laptop when she got it, I'm not keen to buy another expensive laptop, so thought refurbished might be the way to go - they do Dell's and they're business not home - my own laptop is a business one and I can't fault it.

    The question is - is a refurbished lappy going to be OK? And if I put the link to the models they do, is the Dell the best one or are any of the others better? It looks like they're pretty old models and I don't want to go and make a mistake buying one.

    Any help would be hugely appreciated.

    Thanks

    I was in my local Sainsbury's tonight. They're having a laptop clearance sale and some of the prices were very good indeed.
