Hello all,

I am in the UK and about to go to Italy to work. I am looking for a a good workhorse laptop, for internet and media play also. Please advise..

I would like:-

* Minimum 250GB memory
* 2GB Ram minimum, 4GB preferable
* DVD drive/re-writer
* Wireless broadband enabled
* 15" Screen minimum if poss
* Integral Camera / Mic / Speakers
* Windows Vista / 7 installed
* Keyboard with numeric pad
* Min battery life 2.5 hrs

Not fussy on make or colour as long as it's reliable. I won't be gaming on it so high spec graphics not needed. I would like it to last me 3 yrs. Won't need any trial anti-virus package or tech back up package.
Weight not that important, but slim design would be nice. Battery life not that important either as will not be working away from power source much.

Please be gentle, I'm a novice!

Thanks in advance.
