    in sort my 'old faithful' has finally give up the ghost after 6 years, so I need to buy a new one.
    Any advice on the following examples.

    In short it must be able to burn dvds, connect up to the tv (either by RGB or HDMI) wireless and be able to deal with me running several programs, editing movies or streming football/films off the net.

    Just got o/h one from an ebay daily deal for £250ish, does all of the things you want.

    Is it too late?
    Son's advice is always to look out when they've just launched a 'new' model as the so called 'old' models tend to be reduced, but usually only slightly lower spec & probably top-of-the range 6-12 months previously!
    I've followed his advice twice now & got 2 real bargains last time refurbished Toshiba which turned out to be 'new' but overordered by large compnay replacing laptops & this time a Dell, which was recently retired older-model as mentioned. Very happy with both purchases.
