Wondering if anyone has any suggestions of a good valued laptop with blu-ray playback?

I'd be using the following features;

-Steam (Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead)
-HD Movies
-Web Browsing
-Microsoft Office (University Work)
-Downloading Music/Movies

So far the best value for money I've found is the following for £580 at Costco.

I got an Acer Aspire 6920G from Three with a mobile broadband contract on £35 per month, not sure if they still have it for sale but it's an excellent laptop and never given me any problems. It's 3GB RAM and 320GB HDD, i'm sure you could find it for less than £580.

Did a quick Google Search and there's a refurbished 250GB HDD model for £380 at:
