Which laptop to buy? Help please?

Hi all,

I'm looking to find a laptop which has a 17" screen, 2gb hard drive and 260mb RAM. Ideally used for graphic design and photoshop activities rather than gaming. Any advice as to which laptop to purchase would be greatly appreciated as it's a bit of a minefield out there from what I can see so far and I'm already very confused!! I don't mind the brand as long as the laptop itself is reliable.

Go to Staples & buy a Toshiba.
They start from as little as £379.
Got 2 friends who have just through them & both are very happy.

Hopefully you have the Hard Drive and RAM requirements the wrong way round.

I hope not - I'm not sure you'll fit much more than Puppy Linux on a 260mb hard drive.

I do have a 640mb hard drive in the loft in it's needed for a bit of extra storage...

I would suggest you to do little bit of more research with trusted brands like :

Moreover Dell offers the facility of customization so that you can choose laptop according to your requirements.
