Laptop for 850$

Hi,

I'll buy a laptop for max. 850$ from the USA.But i've some difficulties to make the good decision.

-I'll watch HD movies
-I'm not plannig to play games
-The battery life most at least 3 hours.
-The weight could be about 6lbs.
-I'll use it for min. 3 years.
-The sound quality is not so much important.
-LCD ecran's quality is important.Because i'm going to watch a lot of movies.
-I actually use it at home and take it with me for the holidays.
-The WiFi capability must be more than enough.
-120+ of HDD is prefered.
-It will be good if the laptop has an HDMI port.


I found 4 laptops listed below:

    The fact that it's a refurb and it's CPU is only 1.66ghz compare to the two Satellites, says otherwise IMO. I think the A305 is the best choice out of the group; 1.83ghz CPU, large and faster HDD and 3gb of RAM.
  3. Do you have other models to recommend?
  4. You can configure a Dell Inspiron 1525 off the Home/Home Office site with a 2ghz CPU for about $800. The Same goes for the HP DV6500t. It just depends on how mainstream you want to stay.
  5. I've got some doubts on Dell's LCD screen quality.What do you thnik about it?And also i could not find any information about the battery life of 1525 series.
  6. Here's a review of the 1525: http://www.notebookreview.com/default.asp?newsID=4175&review=Dell+Inspiron+1525

    about 3 hrs of battery life on a 6-cell battery. I have seen A WXGA matte screen and a WUXGA Glossy screen from Dell. Both were nice, but I would rather have the glossy because the colors are brighter and more accurate, it will give you glare in areas with a lot of lighting though.
