Choosing a laptop

Last response: in Laptop General Discussion

I am looking for a laptop that will essentially be a desktop replacement, I won't be taking it around with me. I will use it to e-mail, surf the web, watch videos and movies. It needs to have a input mic or a port to take one and be able to burn CDs/DVDs. I am hoping to stick to a £400 budget if that's possible.
