    jsut bought a dell inspiron 1525 for £420. core 2 duo 1.66, 160gb hdd, 2gb ram, hdmi, 15.4", wifi etc. i spent about 2 weeks searching out the best budget, and this seems about right. only downside is it has oboard intel gfx. no dedicated gfx card. but im not gonna use it for gaming so should do the job.
