Viking Warrior

IM looking to buy a reasonably priced lap top for some one as a present


Anybody like to recommend a particular make or model. There seems to be a fair few out there. Im looking for something with a minimum 160GB HD 3g of ram etc Vista home premium



Places like pc world have a few tosh satellites, but they do not look that robust.



So your advice warmly welcomed
