For this price range the only solution is refurbished....i guess you are from Uk so search for stores selling refurbished hardware.....but all these stores want to make a profit you have better chance looking in small adds

Well try to get an Intel CPU for your Laptop i think you should find an older i3 along with at least 4gb RAM and 500GB HDD.

The laptop that you posted is only a 14.1" screen...

This isn't bad:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Acer-TravelMate-7750-i5-2410M-6GB-500GB-DVDRW-HDMI-Webcam-17-3-/152282545095?hash=item2374bf3bc7:g:2dcAAOSw8w1YA2Zz#viTabs_0 

Good bits:
Intel Core i5-2410M 2.30GHz with Turbo up to 2.90GHz
6GB DDR
LAN, WLAN, USB, HDMI,
Webcam
SD Card Reader
17.3'' screen with 1920 x 1080 resolution
Windows 10 Pro installed, activated

£130 with 2 days to go on the auction

But you can probably search there as well as we can...

I'd suggest ideally an i5 chip, 6gb RAM.  i3 would be OK.  500mb hd should be the minimum.  You won't get much gaming potential out of a laptop in any case, especially an older one, so graphics should be fairly irrelevant at this price point.  
Good manufacturers are Lenovo, Dell, HP, Asus, Acer, in my opinion.
Personally, I don't like Packard Bell, or Sony.

If you get one with an older OS, you should check whether drivers to update it to a newer OS exist first, and of course, the free w10 upgrade is now closed.
