    Unlike PC's, brand name does matter. Laptops are good, but if you need it for everyday use, getting a high quality will assure you less problems.

    Not saying the advent would shit out, but I would personally go with Sony.

    They have VERY good laptops.

    to be honest... if you're trying to do video/graphics with your laptop, none of the ones you chose have a decent GPU... I'd find one with a non-integrated card (ati or nvidia, they're about the same for laptop gpu's).

    if you don't mind macs, macbooks have nice video/gpu hardware. you can always run windows/linux dualboot on a mac too.
    is it just me, or do newbies ALWAYS have the worst fucking grammar and spelling known to man?!

    No, re-read my post.

    "Unlike PC's, brand name does matter."

    Meaning on laptops, brand name does matter.

    Meaning go with Sony, since they are of a better, well known company then Advent.

    Goota say, I got the Dell Inspiron 1720. £600 and it has 3 Gb ram and 128Meg Nvidia card as well as dual core. Fast enough to have Aero and a fair few progs open at the same time. But then the most graphic intensive game i ever play is Command and Conquer 3!!! But it is great for general usage/DVD/Blueray rips etc. .mkv movies play smooth as hell on it as well. (If thats your thing). PLus a nice large screen and full size keyboard.
