Looking for a cheap used or refurbished laptop for a project. Price is the
major concern. Not much is needed in the way of spec, it just needs to run
an XSession (not GNOME) and Rhythmbox, have half-decent sound through a
pair of headphones, and have a reasonable-sized hard disk, say 10GB
minimum. A network card or PCMCIA slot is required, wireless is not. It has
to last for a long time without breaking, but is going to be run plugged in
the whole time, so a battery isn't even necessary. And ofcourse, no
proprietary OS preinstalled pushing up the price.

Anyone know of any good sources?

Does anyone have one they'd consider selling?

Any other lists it would be worth inquiring on?

I'm talking about a £100-£200 price range I think.
