What is the best laptop under 700GBP?

  User-1227197 15:02 02 Jan 2008

Dear all,

Am planning on buying a laptop. Got a budget of 700GBP max. Cheaper will even be better.
Need a laptop to do some editing....
Will need one with a firewire, 2 USB minimum, at least 160GB of storage and 2GB of RAM.
Some people have told me that the ACER aspire 4920 or 5920 where the best for this kind of price. What do you reckon? What is the best laptop I could get for this price? And where should I go to buy (on net or in London)?

Thanks in advance for your help

PS; have created a new subject because laptops change every second day.

Most laptops in your budget dont have Firewire on them!
In fact i dont know of many that do.
PCWorld have a sale on have you thought of looking their?

Have a look at SONY VIO VGN-NR11S/S. Brows the net and you will find that it fits your description and budget.
