Laptop under £1000

I am looking for a laptop with a maximum budget of £1000. I am looking for a 17" screen with a decent size hard drive of 100gb + and a decent graphics card of 256mb. I would also like a good screen resloution with at least 1gig of ram. I am not bothered about the battrey life or weight. I am open to any laptops online or shop.

Thanks Manda

quidco gives you

4.5% back and if you had ordered it yesterday you would have got a further £25 back

but as it stands you should get £40 back, making the laptop

£845


it is a decent deal, although nothing like as good as the toshiba deal in january

What toshiba deal was that?

i say january, it was december, a lower spec machine but it cost £390 delivered

hotukdeals.com/for…iba

obviously no where near the spec of the machine i posted for yourself but your budget is quite generous.

on the dell deal i changed a couple things like a better battery, faster ram. the 2 gig is way better as it appears vista is hungrier than a very large person in a pie eating contest.

worth considering as there is 6% quidco and worth checking if this 5% discount works..YAWF07

Upgrade the graphics to 256MB DDR3 nVidia® GeForce™ Go 7900 graphics card add £47.00 and its still just £915.32 delivered.

Or how about this one ]http//ww…701
At £699.99 (think delivery is £30ish, can't remember my login details) you'd have plenty of spare change to throw in another gig of RAM.

Really pleased with the laptop I got from them last year. Think the chassis is Fujitsu Siemens, no Vista though...

yes Mike that is a good spec with the graphics upgrade ....I was in PCWORLD and the HP is a really handsome piece of kit...just thought it was worth a mention even though it is on the expensive side .

Yes it prob is worth mentioning:thumbsup: I am a little blinkered towards Dell as the nurses here dont take me out much and when they do its to new look or habitat so I dont get to see much other kit.
