New laptop advice

Hi,

I am looking to spend around £600 on a laptop, I don't play games apart from Football Manager 10 so graphics card isn't too important, looking for good processor and 4gb ram and longer the battery power the better.

I came across this

Intel® Core™ i5-520M (2.4GHz, 4 Threads, turbo Boost up to 2.93GHz, 3M cache)
Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium, 64bit, English
4096MB 1067MHz Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM [2x2048]
320GB (5,400rpm) Serial ATA Hard Drive
512MB ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 4330

£599

Is that a good deal or anyone know a better one? Thanks

Errr no - it has the same HD 4330 graphics card. Not sure you would need more than 2GB - but you can always buy a 2GB stick later if you do.

The one you quoted is a 256mb graphics card and the one I did is 512mb, I don't know much about graphic cards but just assumed a 512 would be better.

Looking at £600 budget too. But I wouldn't touch Fujitsu with a bargepole, the build quality is awful, trust me and I've owned two and they were well looked after and have literally fallen to bits. Waste of money. Hope this helps.
