    Spec/recommend me a laptop please

    I need a new laptop, one for web surfing and photo editing using photoshop. Build quality is paramount and a good screen no bigger than 15.4". Im looking to spend up to £800 and want the best for my money without going ott.
    Smaller and thinner the better but not at Mac Book air thin.

    Anyone seen something that fits the bill with a little wow factor thrown in?

    Thanks

    Chris

    Spec provided in above quotation!

    If you're after tiny, tiny PC's Advent (we've played with Advent 4211's) should do the trick, although it might not quite punch through in terms of power (and certainly not screen size), but it's small and costs very little. It'll certainly deal with web browsing, but it depends on how manic your photoshopping is I guess

    there not ugly there just the opposite to the mac shine and curves. and they run really well iv not had problem with mine. performs well and over year old and still to show signs of degrading performance or build quality, and IBM have excellent warranty. 3 year on-site/ return to base
