I had thought about getting this samsung laptop at £467 click here

But I saw the Dell studio 15 on sale click here and is £100 more but you get better spec:

core i3-350m cpu (samsung is 330m)
graphics card is 1gb ati 5470 compared to standard intel built in
The also has 180gb larger hard drive, 1gb more ram and its 64 bit windows 7.

Is it worth £100 extra? Is the Dell better built? I can't find Wireless lan and built in microphone listed in the specifications - can anyone confirm it does have these as I'm quite certain all laptops should have these.

That's for you to decide.

Is it better built? I doubt it, both machines have a decent build quality, you'll not notice any difference.

Wireless adapter built in? - yes

Microphone built in? - it has a built-in webcam, so a microphone is almost a certainty, despite the fact that it's not mentioned. Call Dell, they'll tell you.

Thanks, I have decided it is worth it so will order one. But it does show that Dell are quite expensive, its been reduced by over £200.
