    Laptop for under £500

    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.

    Also wondering if anyone knows whether the dual core athlons are any good, or whether to stick to intel?

    Hi, dell where doing some great deals for what you are looking for but hurry up it ends today, also i am not a geek but i believe dual core is better than athlon. goodluck.:thumbsup:

    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.

    Hi there Friend, i have got a laptop which is exceptional, and its more than a head turner, ive got a HP Pavillion Limited Edition (only few built) Bronze, 250 GB harddrive, 3GB RAM, duo core processor windows vista, its brand new still only few months old, it can handle many tasks.

    The reason i am seling this is that i am in need of money, so i am happy if you can make me a offer, i really dont feel like giving this powerfull machine away but what can i do.
