That is a pretty basic specification and just about every laptop with a 15 inch screen or above will meet it. You will not get Microsoft Expression Web 3 or Adobe Web Standard CS4 installed as standard, so Google for best prices or try Software for students

The spec given is the minimum required for the software. I suggest you look at Novatech and get the best you can afford - their cheapest machine is way above your minimum spec.

In addition to the cost of your laptop, you will have to factor in the cost of the two software programs. Microsoft Expression Web 3 has now been superseded by the Web 4 version http://www.software4students.co.uk/MicrosoftExpressionWeb4-details.aspx?gclid=CKjlt7bY8K0CFe4htAodTHPatg. Adobe Web Standard CS4 seems to have been superseded by this http://www.adobe.software4students.co.uk/AdobeWebPremiumCS55StudentandTeacherEdition_PC-details.aspx

Sorry about the links not working. Just go to the software4students web site to find the programs.

The Kestrel If you had checked my response you would see that I had already provided the link to Software4Students.
