Remember you can always claim your money back for not using windows!

55quid is not bad.
As barry sugested linuxemporium doesn't seem like a bad option:

I use dell at work but they are windows machines so I can't judge.

As I said, Dell supply the Inspiron 15R pre-loaded with Ubuntu.  And you
aren't expected to pay for a licence for an OS you'll never use.  In the
UK, ElpaTech http://www.elpatech.co.uk/ offer a range of PC's
pre-installed with Ubuntu and the prices are really good.  Unfortunately
they don't sell laptops, but I think the proprietor, Ed Barnard might
help you source one.  He's an Ubuntumaniac.  Ed - are you out there?

What do you see when you use your Computer? Same old thing?
...There IS a Better Way!  Ubuntu!
