Teenage son wants laptop for his October birthday. With built in wifi and dvd rewriter if poss. Fine - it has to be the absolute cheapest that will as much as possible!! This one seems to do everything except dvd rewrite - though that's less of a priority really -click here
..can anyone suggest a better alternative on the web? Dell do a comparable one but not cheaper or better. Where else is reliable?

HP make pretty good laptops.

Given that even now most cheap laptops only come with 256mb of ram I wouldn't want to try writing a DVD on one, so why pay extra for a DVD writer.

Go for the HP at PC World
