I am considering purchasing a laptop and would like to know what I should go for. I have a budget of around £700 and have found a couple of laptops:

What do you think of the specifications and are there any other laptops i should have a look at? Also, can you use wireless cards in non-centrino laptops? Thanks,

As long as the notebook has a PCMCIA slot you can add a wireless card. There are also USB wireless adaptors available.

Both of these are fairly inexpensive
