    Woah, dude. There are laptops in the £350 - £400 range that might do the job.

    Something like this maybe:

    Over £100 cheaper than the Compaq one, and imo its a much better machine too. Acer make solid laptops, (am writing this on one right now!) and most of my even geekier friends (who care about this sort of thing too much) run acers.

    I'm not like a fan boy or something, just saying that they are quality laptops and very reasonably priced.

    I went straight to Dell.

    I have had 5 Dell laptops in for work and all have performed fantastically.

    I recently bought a widescreen Inspriron with dual core processors for home use and it was dirt cheap due to thier offers, they also do finance.

    Good luck.

    Some thoughts.

    Its a 17in model for a tenner more but its has the better/ updated "Core 2 Duo", if it just says "Core Duo" its the older CPU

    Sommin better looking and as small as you can get for the pice (14" screen), though actually better specs
