Default Expert Needed! Which Laptop?

Hi my friend has a budget of 300, he can stretch it to 350 for a laptop, I saw the Dell and thought this deal was good Click Here (it says 349 on main page dont know why it says 419), can any experts on here confirm this is the best one available for the price or recommend a better one (maybe even with a DVD Recorder )

You can make it fit your budget by selecting the support services icon down at the bottom and just getting the basic care. Then you can put that do the optical drive with the DVD burner. It'll still be in your range, 384 pounds though.

Yeah, that has WiFi built in.

I recently purchased the Intel version of that laptop, love it!

Where abouts do you like in the UK? There is a shop near me, (Manchester) selling an AMD one at the moment for 300.
