Hey guys, im going to buy a laptop for uni work and some light gaming. Im pretty good with Pc's but not so good with laptops.

What should i be looking for if i spent between 400-600? Anyone know any good vendors?

I get a 10% discount in Currys and Pc world so...

thanks

The HP 2360 seems to be a good one for its price. 2GB is just enough for Vista (since it hogs memory) and the dedicated graphics cards is even better since you're going to do some gaming with this. I just couldn't find it on those two sites you provided, maybe I'm just blind :)
