    For your budget and requirements I'd go for something like:

    or

    http://www.comet.co.uk/p/Laptops/buy-ASUS-X54H-SX105V-Laptop/764981

    They are both i3 laptops so use fairly new CPUs and will be more "future proof" than some cheaper models. If price is key then you could pick up a Dell with lesser spec that would cope with your needs, the cheapest one on here would do the trick:
