WANTED- good spec for a laptop

    Afternoon everyone

    since im at home, ill (cough cough) when i should be at school hukd's got the better of me and i can't help browsing for a new/better laptop.

    at the moment im on a dell inspiron 1300

    Intel(R) Celeron(R) M
    Processor 1.60GHz
    1.60GHz, 0.99 GB of RAM
    Physical Address Extension

    if ive missed anything out there, tell me (in good detail) n il try and get it

    So, since all i know all i know about computers from experimenting with a click here and a click there. I don't know a lot

    i mostly use it for msn, microsoft word 07, vista would be nice, limewire the basics really

    looking at a 2gig for ram
    modest hdd as im gettin a new ipod hopefully soon, at the moment i fink ive got 60G
    dont knw much about processors, jus tht they make it faster.
    erm, wifi. i guess they all have that now. id rather a smaller laptop then a bigger one, so any suggestions are very welcome

    maxium, maxium budget is £600.00

    ones that ive seen:

    ive seen a really nice packard bell laptop in currys digital in york, searched for it on internet and couldn't find it

    and this one:…ort
    if it has for example like the above laptop the VAT stated, i can kept the vat back by putting it throught my dads business.

    anyway thanks for takin the time lookin/thinkin/helping



    That second one is a perfectly reasonable mid-range laptop.

    Im not convinced you need 2 gig of ram on a laptop, but I'll look anyway

    I can save you a fair bit if your willing to take a slight hit on the graphics chip (its an X2300 - not specified on link), - i.e.: if you aren't planning on playing too many chart games…848 which is £512 with free delivery

    looks like the one I've linked throws in an extra year's warranty, as well

    cheers, that looks great.

    well yeah 1G serves me fine, but if i sell this dell i might aswell get a better one. so at least i wont have to upgrade..........for awhile.

    thanks again

    what about this-…D=1

    Thats an ultra-portable machine: - its inevitably notably slower than either of the other two posted - and the craphics chip on that vaio is really quite poor
