17" Laptop for Movie Viewing


Active Member
Sorry for another 'what laptop thread' but asking on behalf of my boss so lots of suggestions please! Looking for a decent laptop with 17 inch screen to be used for general media viewing (movies, netflix etc). Ideally like inbuilt camera and biggest HD possible. Ideal budget is £400 but willing to entertain suggestions above that if they are good machines. Thanks for your help in advance.

17" screens have gone out of fashion in a big way of late so the choice is limited and on that budget screen quality isn't going to be brilliant.

Do they actually want something to move around with? If this is only going to be used at home then they might prefer to look at the streaming options to get what they want onto the TV - a media player/set top box that can stream files over the network and play netflix.
