    Resolution should say 1280x800 sorry!

    Why do you feel you need 4Gb of memory ?

    Unless you are doing some complex computing 2Gb is enough.

    32 bit Windows cannot recognise more than about 3.2Gb anyway so anything above that is a waste.

    You should be able to edit your original append.

    you've got a very vague screen size there...ranges from an ultrportable to almost as big as a laptop can get.
    first of all, apart from a few games, what do you want the laptop for? Where are you going to be using it?

    I need one that is fairly portable as it does tend to travel a fair bit. I would prefer a smaller one however I am aware that the price goes up for small screen and power! So i'm not ruling out a larger screen (currently own a Dell Inspiron 15")

    I think you've answered your own questipon. If you need a screen size of around 13 inches, then you simply are going to have to pay around £1000. If you wanted a size of around 15 inches you would be looking at significantly less.

    True...... I suppose although main question was does anyone know of a better deal than in the link provided which was recommended to me?

    Is weight not going to be a bigger factor then size in that case?

    There's a 14" one ]here that's around £650 with your required spec, I don't know what the quality is like though. (I guess the 9300gs is around the same spec as the 8400gs)

    They get good reviews for their desktops, I almost bought one from them a couple of months ago myself but by the time I was ready they'd stopped offering the processor I wanted so I ended up building myself. There were very helpful with the couple of specification enquiries I sent.
