Please Help Laptops

I am looking to buy my 12yr old a laptop for christmas. He does not want it to play games on just to go on the net. I have been told that these cheap ones are no good but I dont want to pay £800, plus just for a laptop I dont think he will use. He has a PC in his own room which is fine,I just wanted to know if someone could give me a bit of advise re laptops, I have found one which has 1gb ram dvd writer, Iqon pentium M735 centrino it says its vista compatible and comes with windows media center for £699.
I am at a loss, please help.

Dell are solid a reliable, the core duo processor ones are particularly good. click here Other makes are recommended by others.

£700 will certainly get a machine to do what you say it will be used for even less if its for internet and basic use.

Thanks what do you think of the Toshiba one I showed you

Toshiba is ok, but why pay over the top when you can buy equally as good for less, as in my "click-here".

Personally I would never pay more than £450 for a laptop - and I would still get good quality.
