Hi
I will be getting a laptop for Christmas. I am now having a look to see what there is as I want to be able to do certain things with it. I am now really struggling to find what I want.
Here are the minimum requirements,
It will be used for, internet, email, downloads, movies and music.

80 GB Hard Drive
512mb Ram
Windows Xp media Center edition (must qualify for the windows vista express upgrade)
Good graphics (although not really needed high, as I will not be playing any games on it. Just want it to look good and smooth.
Preinstalled software not needed i.e. Microsoft office etc as I already have it
Screen size doesn’t matter as long as I can look at it for long periods of times and watch DVDs on it.
DVD Re writer.
Price is not an issue at the the moment as long as it doesn’t cost the earth.
Needs to come with a case,
Ideally only known manufacturers such as, Dell, Sony Toshiba, and Compaq as I we don’t want to buy something from somewhere that we have not really heard of.

Those are the minimum requirements however if there is a better one at a cheaper price then please let me know.
I hope that this will help someone find me the ideal laptop for Christmas

Thanks
Ben

Well....that was a swift change of mind from desktop pc to laptop.
Anyway, IMO this is a fantastic laptop for everyone (except gamers).
