I think it was an updated model (the Turion one anyway), from what I can 
remember not the Vostro 1000.  I recently (well a couple of months ago) 
setup a Vostro 1000 with a Sempron 3000 for a friend of my mums.  Not 
the best built laptops ever but for about £225 she paid for it it did 
the job.  Really does need some more memory than the standard 1GB for 
Vista though.
