Going to buy new laptop within next few weeks. I have a budget of around £1400. It needs to be relatively easy to transport around, and must connect to my wireless g network at home. DVD writer also neccessary. Any reccomendations please???

Becuase it needs less power generate less heat so, usually lighter, 15in one normally less than 2.7kg.

There are so many to chose from with that price.

Systemax TourBook® 5202 OCT04 £1291 click here_(2.0GHZ)_512MB_60GB_HDD_DVDRW_56K_ENET_WIRELESS_WXH_15_SXGA+_TFT_NOTEBOOK/index.htm (other model from Tourbook range got really good review, this is a new model, no review out yet.) 2.68kg

But, I think Systemax TourBook® 5202 is better valued.

Go with the Dothan processor - the 1.7 will be pretty impressive. Combined with the 7200rpm hdd, you will have a good machine.
