Right, well I know this isn't the most interesting thread evar, but I need some advice on buying a new laptop. I'll start at the start. [Skip this paragraph if you don't want to hear my life story] About 5 weeks ago I bought an iBook 12" for £650 (in educational discount) from the Apple online store. 3 weeks ago it arrived and it was nice. 2 days ago it got stolen. Luckily it's covered on the insurance so I will be hopefully getting a voucher for a new laptop up to the value to £800 (The RRP of the iBook). The big catch is that it has to come from PC World, Dixons or Curries. Now obviously I could just get another iBook, but as I now have £800 to spend (rather than the £650 before), I think it makes more sense to go for a better model. I can't stretch to the next iBook up, so I was looking at PC laptops. So, £800, any recommendations? The only thing that it would have to have is Wireless (802.11g), which covers just about all laptops these days anyway. Doesn't have to be super-fast, and certainly not for games, but obviously faster is better than slow. Size is definitely a factor. The iBook is lovely and small, yet fully featured. I have seen these "ultra-portables" and I think I want a bit more functionality than they offer. However, I could certainly cope with something slightly bigger than the tiny iBook if it meant better battery life/performance. Quality is important too. Apples are made nicely and I reckon would last years of throwing in bags etc. I don't want anything that will break if I sneeze on it. Battery life is very important. The iBook was good for over 5hrs on one charge, and I would probably be taking it on the road fairly often, so a good battery life is a must. At the moment I am thinking another iBook fits the bill perfectly, but does anyone have any recommendations?
