Need new Laptop!

My laptop has just packed in and am in need of a new one, I have a budget of about £400 but willing to go over a bit £50 or so. I would like if possible for it to have one of the new cpu's either Intel i3 or i5. Don't need a graphics card won't be gaming. Thanks/

Studio XPS 13 (M1340)

Similar to the Studio XPS 16 but trimmed down into a 13.3" 720p 16:10 aspect ratio screen, it has an illuminated QWERTY keyboard and includes leather accents on the lid. Its full body is piano black and silver.

The Studio XPS graphics offerings are currently the integrated Nvidia 9400M G (same as used in MacBook Air and 13" MacBooks) and the more powerful Nvidia GeForce 9500M GE (which is composed of an integrated GeForce 9400M G and discrete GeForce 9200M GS with 256MB of GDDR3 memory). When configured with the 9500M GE you're able to switch between the 9400M G running standalone and the 9400M G with the 9200M GS in Windows Vista, without logging out and back in like you must with Apple products due to the availability of Hybrid SLI. Although this model is still available in Europe with the 512MB nVidia GeForce 210M graphics card and the NVIDIA® GeForce® MCP79MX Chipset.

I would spec up a low-end i3 machine from dell, you should be able to get one for around 400 and it will be significantly faster (& therefore future-proof) than a previous generation dual core machine (like the argos on is)...

Do have any examples/links for the one from dell?

try configuring one similar to this (expired) one from about 2 months ago (you can get it for 429 now rather than 399 8 weeks ago)

I have been looking at that one the only thing putting me off is the 3GB ram wish its was 4GB do you think this would make much difference. Also wish the Hard drive was just a bit bigger.
