This time I am using Alienware Area m5500 include its widescreen 15.4" display. Alienware Area m5500 has two graphics chips, which you can choose between with a flick of switch and a reboot. There’s Intel graphics for extended battery life and an nVidia GPU for gaming. Indeed, the m5500 features the same chassis so it’s size (326 x 278 x 31 (WxDxH), and weight, 3Kg, are the same.

Never ever buy breakdown cover, it's a rip off.

If you dont fail in the first year (covered by standard warranty) you will probably not for another 5-10 years.

I may also be in the market for a laptop/netbook at a push.

Dell stuff looks good. But I am waiting a bit.
Check the usual culprits. dell/amazon/pcworld/tesco etc.

The one I have been looking at is the Aldi Medion with Three year warranty, a 160Gb hard drive card reader XP home Bundle or Corel Software including Office and a Draw Program Intel Atom CPU WiFi as all the best Netbooks use. plenty more of it to look at about £275
