    Budget dictates everything.
    you need to give us something to run with, otherwise we'll suggest some mad skillz units at ££££'s.

    Give us a price range or top end mate

    I'd recommend you push your budget to £430 to include the 8400GS

    HDD storage WILL become a problem, but with the prices of flash memory and external SATA drives falling daily, just hold out till you need the space.

    I currently have an XPS and it does everything I need it too.
    It will never replace a tower for the same price, but hey it's a laptop so that's a given right?!

    Well good luck,
