    Looks fine to me, might be worth upgrading the memory though.

    Core 2 Duo is worth getting over Core Duo if you won't be gaming (seenas the C2D one has no dedicated video card), it's much faster...

    RAM is so cheap atm, there's no reason not to upgrade, so that's not a worry.

    http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/Lenovo_3000_N200_0769_TY2BMUK/version-1.asp - Seems like a good one. Tips the scales a little over the £400 mark, but well worth it. Plus, it looks like you can get a deal to up the ram to 2GB (easy to upgrade anyway, as it has 1 x 1GB stick, instead of 2 x 512MB found in most others).
    Even has bluetooth and a webcam built in! Comes with XP Pro, if that makes a difference.
