Thanks, that is really helpful and like the spec of the machine you suggested, the only problem is its about £100 over budget, I was looking to spend about £400. Liked the acer because it had the blu-ray + could do some gaming, do you know of any other makes which may compare. I have had an acer in the past and wasn't too impressed as it died aftr about 3 years, but then I purchased another and that seems to be better, interesting the first was an amd processor and this one is an intel but its only about 2 years old. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I may look to see if the one you suggested can be found a bit cheaper.
