Hi. Not sure if this is the place to post this, but I'm after a reasonably priced, good performance laptop.

Preferably with a Large Screen (20 inch?), Good Amount of RAM (2 GB?), good Graphics Card, Good HDD space. The works.

Can anyone point me in the right direction of a laptop, or at least some specs so I can get one made.

I'm talking good, smooth performace, but not...you know...gaming level.

Also some advice on an operating system. I'm thinking XP Pro

Also, for a good office suite, is Microsoft Office 2007 recommended?

And Adobe Photoshop CS3 for Graphics Work?

Hi there.. I'm not sure if a 20" notebook exist.. the largest notebook i've ever seen myself comes with 17" only.. :)

Since you are asking about notebook, may I recommend you Dell Vostro? You can costumize the notebook specification by yourself :) The model that I meant is the most right ones, the ones with Nvidia graphic :)

feast your eyes...

And Dell makes one too. Unfortunately, they are only offered with Vista. If you wanna get a very nice performing laptop with a large screen (may have to go with 17") and Windows XP on it, then I agree with fenz. Customize one yourself from HP or Dell, since changing a Vista laptop to XP is a real pain. :)

Also, about the Office suite. Do you need Word and Excel? If you just need an office suite, I would suggest checking out OpenOffice.org. It's an open-source basic office suite. Kinda like Microsoft Works except that it works with Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc. better. But, if you need Microsoft Office, then I would just get that.

Good luck.
