I need help buying a laptop.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This is my first ever thread, ever. So please don't be mean.
Anyways i'm looking for a laptop for about £750 (GBP) or less and i'm stuck.

My minimum requirements are:
Processor: preferably intel, but don't mind AMD 1.73ghz or more
Screen: 15.4" or less
Graphics:ATI/Nvidia, 128mb or more, not integrated.
OS:xp if possible
memory:1GB or more.
Brand: any
I should be using a laptop for internet/music playback/IM/counterstrike: source and to do my homework.

Thanks, i hope the replies come streaming back.

Go with a Macbook, those are tank, but windows on it to play games and then you can do the rest of your stuff on OS X. My bro and friends have one and I will probably get one when penryn comes out.

PS: Welcome!
