Anyone give me some advice on the best places to buy a new but budget priced laptop for use on a university course. Does not need to have all whistles and bells. Also any advice on minimum spec for usefulness

Excellent machines at excellent prices.

What is more important: speed or portability?

portability probably

If portability, then get a Centrino machine; chances are your uni will have wireless facilities - these machines are light and run fast.
