15.6" are so common that it's more likely to get a good deal than a sub-13" model.

Tesco on Ebay do some good deals.

Cant go wrong with the likes of the the a HP DM1 or the Acer 725.

Lucky for you that this is out of your price range, being far too disposable for my liking, like many of the new breed.

Go to 14" and the Asus X401A is good value and under 250
