All i need from it is 2 gb of ram, an okay cpu, a screen which is at least 720p and over 100gb of storage. it would also be helpful if anyone knows of a online tool to find laptops. finally, i am uk based so preferably purchasable in the uk. Thanks in advance

why not buy a new/used ultra cheap laptop and install ubuntu on it yourself? it takes 30 minutes to an hour if the laptop meets ubuntu requirements.
 
Netbooks got subsumed by notebooks when Intel released the Atom line of CPUs. They gave their last gasp when tablets became mainstream. The closest thing to them right now are Chromebooks, but your requirement for 100 GB of local storage is antithecal to their design. Google tries to make sure they're dependent on the cloud (specifically Google's cloud).

You might be able to find a used laptop that meets your requirements. If you insist on new, look for a Chromebook which takes SD cards or microSD cards for extra storage, and that people have successfully installed Linux onto.

That's what I did with my Toshiba NB205 that had Windows XP on it.
