    Need laptop with a built in Web Cam, mic and speakers, must have at least 15" screen, preferably Core Duo processor.

    The only option I have found seems to be the Sony Vaio FE21H, has anyone seen a product out there that might do the job a wee bit cheaper than the sony.

    Cheers
    Billy

    The Acer 5670 Series have a webcam 15" Screen and Duo processor, can be bought for around £700+

    http://www.shopacer.co.uk

    The Acer 9400 is same with 17" Screen for £800 and Acer 9800 with 20" Screen for £1280.

    Can all probably be found a bit cheaper elsewhere too.

    HTH.

    laptopsdirect.co.uk or asuslaptops.co.uk:
    Asus A6 series, dual core config costs £750-900 depending on graphic card
    Soon to be here Asus F3J series costs £600-900 depending on graphic card

    Zepto 2425 http://uk.zepto.com/default.aspx?tax=1
    - It's a Zepto rebranded Compal Hel80 that you can configure to your liking (option for Merom, when in stock) - go on www.notebookreview.com for the site's 3 Hel80 reviews

    Also see forum of the review site for Zepto info. If UK office service ain't up to your liking, the Zepto Rep on the forum is the operations manager from Denmark who has helped people

    No, I'm not affiliated with them. I just considered Zepto due to the cost vs components, but will get a HP instead due to deal price (HP doesn't have webcam)

    I was going to suggest that too Typing on one now and it's beautiful!!

    However, the built in camera only works with MacOS - NOT windows (Yet!)

    Thanks for your help.

    LFC SL, spot on with the notebook review site. Thats usually half the battle, finding a decent review site.
