  1. Hello all,

    Im after a bit of expert advice and im hoping this is the right place to ask.

    I have £700 to spend on a laptop for Uni and i need it too meet a certain spec which is -

    Portable & Light (the smaller the better)
    DVD rw drive (for watchin films)
    Decent graphics card (to play call of duty 4 at least)
    Good battery life (as ill be at uni with it all day)
    Wireless
    Does not have to have an OS as i will install XP on the machine
    Good make! (would love a sony but obviously cannot afford one)

    Processor dual core
    memory 2gb + ?

    Could people point me in the right direction ? Maybe give me a few examples or recommend me a few? I do not want to spend £700 and be unhappy with it :)

    Thanks alot for any help in advance
    Moka :)
