    Laptop for £800

    What will 800 quid get ya atm?

    Key features - battery life, durability and reliability. Doesn't need to be a speed freak.

    Cheers.

    edit: And ignore Acer products, my Acer laptop has durability issues.

    The Dell Inspiron 510m Would be pretty good. It's centrino so no worries with battery life

    I have no shame. Oh yeah - the laptop is basically the NC8430, so its business class quality.
