    Deal needed - decent spec laptop for under £500?

    Hi, I need a laptop - got £500 to spend (hopefully less).

    I'm tech savvy, but have really lost track of all the new mobile processors etc that are around these days, so I seem to have about 1000 laptops to choose from in my price range.

    Things I need:

    HP or Dell (maybe Tosh)
    A business-grade machine, ie. a decent build quality
    As much memory as possible - 2gb, or 3 or 4!
    At least a 15" screen
    Fair decent sized HD - 100gb+
    As fast as possible, obviously.

    That's it! I'm happy to buy it online or on the high street, but I do need in in the next couple of weeks, so a six week wait from Dell is no good.

    Also, which mobile processor is best to get in my price range??

    Can anyone help with recommendations? Thanks!

    i just got this one a couple weeks ago and it seems great

    only downside really is onboard graphics but its plays the games ive wanted it to absolutly fine and i regularly watch movies on it with no issues, all in all seems pretty good specs for the price!

    intel core 2 duo, 4gb ram!, 250gb harddrive and a decent battery life of up to 4.5 hours

    One of the Intel Core 2 processors is best, 800 or 1066fsb and as much cache and as fast a clockspeed as possible.

    Wow onlyme23, that's a good deal. I was nearly set on getting a Dell outlet model, but now I'm not so sure!

    Found a corker on Dell Outlet so I'm going for that. Of course, I blew my budget! Thanks for the help.
