Advice please on notebook

Hi all

I have a budget (slightly flexible) of £1k.Looking to use the laptop for purely home use - spreadsheets, email etc, combined with surfing, some digital photos and a decent graphics card. Only want Pentium & cdrw no dvd rw.Weight is no issue, but broadband modem is a must. What is reliable nowadays and who is a good online supplier? Software also not an issue.

i use click here for all my hardware and "pipex" is a good ISP.

EBuyer can be a "*!"*" to return stuff though if it's faulty, but, i've only had around 3 failures in 45 purchases and they're cheap...

forgot to mention, pipex don't support you running web / ftp server from your LAN...
