a Desktop (Media Center), which I purchased last month and a pavillion laptop. They are very reliable and I am very pleased with them. Their Customer Service is quite good, like if you have a querie and phone them they don't hesitate to contact you regarding your problem with their products.
What is your budget for buying a laptop?
I recommend the Hp Pavillion DV5157EA from Comet. It has very good spec including 100Gb hdd, 1Gb Ram, and a AMD Turion ML34 1.8Ghz chip.
for £699.00 which is well worth the money. Even if you won't use it for high demanding applications it still has alot of storage and will run smoothly with the programs you use on it. If you ever come across a game you fancy I'm sure it will be able to handle it
