Default Cheap laptop

Hi, off to uni and looking at a laptop (under 400 would be ideal)

I've got a powerful desktop, but I want to be able to use my laptop around for programming, surfing, music etc

Found

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/199170 350

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/195968 390

Am I right in thinking the 350 squid one is better in performance, despite the latter's higher price. I know the second has more RAM, but the dual pentium is more powerful


Can anyone think of a better laptop for under 400 (I would stretch over 400 if there is a laptop worth the extra bang for the buck)

Cheers
Tom

Now just seen this one with extra battery and a bit lighter

worth 400?
