Notebooks suck, but if you insist on having one.. :p
firstly.. http://www.apple.com/uk/ibook/ or if you must have a Windows machine, I see you've already noticed and mentioned NovaTech, two friends have notebooks from there, nice machines, would recommend them.. apart from there sales/e-mail staff, still haven't got back to me with regards to a post-christmas query. feckers. Easy enough to get hold of on the phone though :)

I checked out Ebuyer but their Sony's seemed to be a litle vague on the spec front.

But you're right SPeedY I don't really want a laptop but I can't take my desktop offshore! So there you are :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
