Hello!
I was wondering what laptop you'd recommend me to get?

-I am a psychology student and so will need to write loads of essays (Word) and produce powerpoint presentations.
-I have approx. 2000-3000 songs on iTunes
-I will be watching DVD's and burning CD's and DVD's
-I will be using Skype, msn, webcam quite a lot
.......and basically what laptop has the best features, speed, memory, battery, etc.

It is between 2 laptops (see link below for my choices) as I am on a tight budget, I'm not going to be able to afford upgrades and things like that

1) ACER

2)DELL

(it is the 3rd notebook along, InspirionTM 1501, £399)

..please help me, I am way beyond being confused. I need a laptop urgently as I start uni is 2 weeks..yikes!!!
THANKS!!!!!!!!!!

Most of them are too cramped for continuous typing and so get a proper one to plug in when we're at Home(available from £5 upward).

Nice Acer, but would upgrade the memory to 2Gb. Plus, is the HDD big enough for what u want?
