I know you dont want to buy one yet but look at the spec on this laptop. THis is the spec you need.

Expect to pay about £1k

Not a 17ins but that's big to lug around click here
At this price you could upgrade Drive and memory very cheap for a good laptop

thanks al for the pcworld link but do you think a 1.66 processor will be powerful enough?,i am not worried about the wieght but i think the 17 inch screen is quite important.
what about this one

thats a good laptop but try and see if you can get a bigger hard drive because recording tv uses a lot of memory.

will try and find some more.
