Hi all,

I'm very much into desktops, but have not really delved into laptops. I'm looking for something for my girlfriend, for christmas, to replace the Acer Travelmate 3010 that she has at the moment; its about 2 years old, and dying!

1_ Budget is £600ish. Less is (very) good, if requirements are met. :p

2_Notebook size: 12" ideally

3_Not worried, but the old was 1200*800 or thereabouts, dont want to decrease

4_A small portable one!

5_Battery life: 4+ hours ideally

6_No gaming

7_Only tasks will be web, looking at photos / videos, word processing

8_120+ gb storage would be good - 160+ ideal

12_If she could use her current Acer accessories that would be good (ie battery), but i doubt its possible. Would be good if it wasnt too heavy

13_Holland, but want to buy in UK

I guess I am looking for something like this: http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/asp/versions.asp?rewrite=Samsung_P210_NP-P210-FA01UK&pagetype=version&page=

Could really use guidance in both the machine, and where to buy!

This one looks even more tempting, what do people think?

Ok, in the abscence of anyone actually knowing anything about this segment of the laptop market, can anyone point me towards any more specialist laptop forums? Toms is superb for desktops, but rather less active on anything mobile it seems!
