I'd look at a refurbished Lenovo X series. There are X61s for under
£100 and X220/X230s available for around £300-400. The X61 I have runs
pretty darned nicely (and with only a C2D T7300), much faster than
standard netbooks (e.g. Chromebooks) but an X230 with 3rd-gen Core i5
would really fly along.
