Laptop 13-15" Intel 4gb RAM 250gb+ HD...Which one?

I need a new laptop which will be used for web browsing, downloading video's from my HD Camcorder and photos from my camera mainly and from what I have researched so far the rough specifications I am looking for are:

Screen 13-15"
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor (at least 2GHz)
4 GB RAM (Unless you think 3GB is sufficient?)
Dedicated Graphics Card
At Least 250GB Hard Drive (Preferrably a bit more)
DVD RW Drive

My budget is somewhere between £400-£600.

I'm not overly keen on Acer or similar budget laptops but like the look of Dell(If someone recommends Dell, which one would best suite me?). May be prepared to spend to the higher end of my budget if it seemed justified.

Has anyone got any suggestions?

Any brands to avoid? Anyone have any preffered brands that they can recommend?

I'd be inclined to wait until you can get Windows 7.
