Hi,

I am looking to buy a laptop for around £500 and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations. The spec i require is:

Core 2 Duo Processor
2gb+ ram
256mb+ gfx
160gb+ hdd
dvd-rw drive (would be nice to have blu-ray)
3hr+ battery life
and a "free" upgrade to windows 7 on release.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

The dual core athlons are ok but for that money your will most certainly get a cracking core 2 duo with at least 4gb memory and 250\320 or even a 500gb hard drive mate.

Like this lot......

Intel Core 2 Duo T6400, 2.0GHz, 4GB RAM, 250GB HDD, 15.6\" TFT, DVDSM,Webcam, Vista Home Premium here at £449http://www.ebuyer.com/product/168884

Or

Intel Core 2 Duo T5670 1.8GHz, 4GB 250GB 15.4" BrightView TFT, DVD±RW Lightscribe Writer, Bluetooth, SD Card Slot, Vista Home at £380 here http://www.ebuyer.com/product/164845

Or

Core 2 Duo T6570, 250GB HDD, 4GB RAM, 15.4" TFT, DVD±RW, Vista Business / XP Pro downgrade a business system for £474 here http://www.ebuyer.com/product/160832

There are some Dell units too...................HP or this compaq from Comet here.......

This is the older CPU but it has a 17.3 inch screen and 4GB ram and a 250GB Hard drive.

Just some for your money..........................you can get some bargains at the moment.

Hope it helps....
