Top of the budget for this Dell Inspiron E1505 at $804.60 + $50.30 tax = $854.90

  • Intel® Core™ Duo Proc T2250 (1.73GHz/533MHz/2 X 1MB L2 Cache)
  • Operating System (Office software not included) Genuine Windows® XP Media Center Edition 2005
  • LCD Panel 15.4 inch Wide Screen XGA Display with TrueLife™
  • Memory 1GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 533MHz, 2 Dimm
  • Video Card 128MB ATI MOBILITY™ RADEON® X1300 HyperMemory™
  • Hard Drive 60GB 5400rpm SATA Hard Drive
  • Network Card and Modem Integrated 10/100 Network Card and Modem
  • Combo or DVD+RW Drive 8X CD/DVD Burner (DVD+/-RW) with double-layer DVD+R write capability
  • Sound Options Integrated Audio
  • Wireless Networking Cards Wireless Card Only: Intel PRO/Wireless 3945a/g
  • Primary Battery 53 WHr 6-cell Lithium Ion Primary Battery
  • Warranty and Service 1Yr Ltd Warranty, 1Yr Mail-In Service, and 1Yr HW Warranty Support

For $90 extra (plus a little tax) you can upgrade to Core 2 Duo instead of Core Duo. I did upgrade to a dedicated video card to take pressure of system RAM.

Core Duo systems with 1GB RAM on Newegg go over $900: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...n=&srchInDesc=

One of these Dell Inspiron Laptops would be suitable. Dell are very good for laptops . Personally, I'd go for the E1505 .

EDIT: Damn it Chozart, you beat me to it, lol.

Highly-Annoyed

And bottom of the budget is covered now also

Obviously, you can likely get any sort of configuration between those two pricemarks.
