Default laptop suggestions

my mate wanted me to ask you all a question:
"Im wanting to get a laptop for my 18th, and i need some advice from people here. I want a laptop that has at least 1gb Ram (ideal2gb )at least 60gb hd (pref more like 100gb+) , and some sort of good processer.
I won't really play games on it, but will use programs such as itunes, IE, Photoshop, Flash, Dreamweaver, etc. My price range anything up to 400 cud go bit more. Anyone advise me on any that you think would be good ?
i've seen a dell laptop that fits spec but its like 500."

personally i think his budget is a little low but please post some ideas. cheers

you can check out www.ubid.com - most of their computers are refurbished, but in the end they are all greatly priced for the hardware within the units. Ill look into some other places as well.

hey i got an intel pentinum M 1.7 ghz with 512mb ram and a 60gb hard drive , it also has a dl dvd burner and a widescreen display for 360 only thing is the ram but that could be upgraded to 1GB easily and the pentinum m is a very good processor probably the best mobile solo core processor anyway this thing also has centrino technologyand the battery is pretty good , i ran it off batery for 2 hours and the bar went about 1/3 the way down and it also has wireless built in

>oh yeah and this thing runs flash dreamweaver and fireworks and when i get my 1gb ram it will also run adobe photoshop, (would run now but i have found photoshop runs best on at least 1gb ram)

yea celerons suck. my lappy was 450 with a 80 leather bag from currys. cant complain. the only probs is the 60gb and the batt is only about 3 hours on very low settings and just running the internet and maybe a few other apps.
