    Not sure about places that make laptops but there are plenty of places that build desktops like PC Specialist and Cougar extreme

    Hello feely:biggrin

    What sort of budget are you on?

    There's lots of places like ebuyer and Amazon. But you need to let us know what specs and what your budget is?:biggrin

    Aaah just found that link:-

    Ebuyer Acer Aspire

    I just bought this laptop (well similiar) it's got 2MB of DDR2 ram and bigger HD but it's more less the same and for 44 reviews all giving it top marks you can't argue at that!

    Is it just for school work or for playing games as well??

    Here's the one I bought from Amazon:-

    Amazon Acer Aspire:biggrin

    They're pretty cool!

    It's just gonna be for school..im not big into gaming...as for spec, im not 100%, I haven't really given it alot of thought..to put it in its basic terms, I want a PC that'll allow me to run a few programs at once (Mathcad, Astronomy imagineing etc) with good, solid memory, and a good software package i.e. Office etc...as for the exact detail, not sure lol

    As for budget - around £800..maybe £1000...but id want something that'll last lol

    You need to decide what screen size and CPU you want ie Intel or AMD?

    At the moment Intel seems to wiping the market with there intel core 2 duo processor and the new quad core.

    Have a look at this website for other acer models.
    SHOPACER

    I'd stay away from Sony laptop, their customer service are crap for support. Evesham used to be good but have been taken over by Tiny (Time computers) so steer clear from them. Toshiba and Dells are OK
