Afternoon everyone

since im at home, ill (cough cough) when i should be at school hukd's got the better of me and i can't help browsing for a new/better laptop.

at the moment im on a dell inspiron 1300

Intel(R) Celeron(R) M
Processor 1.60GHz
1.60GHz, 0.99 GB of RAM
Physical Address Extension

if ive missed anything out there, tell me (in good detail) n il try and get it

So, since all i know all i know about computers from experimenting with a click here and a click there. I don't know a lot

i mostly use it for msn, microsoft word 07, vista would be nice, limewire the basics really

looking at a 2gig for ram
modest hdd as im gettin a new ipod hopefully soon, at the moment i fink ive got 60G
dont knw much about processors, jus tht they make it faster.
erm, wifi. i guess they all have that now. id rather a smaller laptop then a bigger one, so any suggestions are very welcome

maxium, maxium budget is £600.00

ones that ive seen:

ive seen a really nice packard bell laptop in currys digital in york, searched for it on internet and couldn't find it

and this one: http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=93116&highlight=extra+port
if it has for example like the above laptop the VAT stated, i can kept the vat back by putting it throught my dads business.

anyway thanks for takin the time lookin/thinkin/helping

That second one is a perfectly reasonable mid-range laptop.

Im not convinced you need 2 gig of ram on a laptop, but I'll look anyway

I can save you a fair bit if your willing to take a slight hit on the graphics chip (its an X2300 - not specified on link), - i.e.: if you aren't planning on playing too many chart games

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/132848 which is £512 with free delivery

looks like the one I've linked throws in an extra year's warranty, as well
cheers, that looks great.

well yeah 1G serves me fine, but if i sell this dell i might aswell get a better one. so at least i wont have to upgrade..........for awhile.

thanks again

what about this-

Thats an ultra-portable machine: - its inevitably notably slower than either of the other two posted - and the craphics chip on that vaio is really quite poor
o rite, thanks for th guidance!:-D
