Looking for a laptop to buy for when I go uni and found this

  • 17" Screen
  • AMD Turion™ X2 Ultra Dual-Core Mobile Processor ZM-85 • 2.3 Ghz, Level 2 cache 2 MB
  • Windows Vista® Home Premium with Service Pack 1 (64-bit)
  • 4096 MB Memory
  • 500 GB HDD
  • Lightscribe Super Multi DVD Writer (+/-R +/-RW) with Double Layer support
  • 5-in-1 integrated Digital Media Reader for Secure Digital cards, MultiMedia cards, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, or xD Picture cards
  • LAN / WIFI / Bluetooth
  • 4 (4th shared with Esata port) USB 2.0, 1 HDMI connector, 1 eSata connector, 1 VGA port, 1 RJ45 ethernet connector, expansion port, 2 headphones-out, 1 mic-in, 1 IEEE 1394, Consumer IR, cable docking connector
  • IEEE 1394 FireWire® Video Capture Interface
  • 17.3” Diagonal HD+ High-Definition HP LED BrightView Widescreen Display - 1600 x 900
  • ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4530 - Up to 2302 MB total graphics memory with 512 MB dedicated DDR3
  • HP Pavilion Webcam with Integrated Digital Microphone. VGA low-light
  • 41.26 cm (L) x 27.7 cm (W) x 3.5 cm (min H)/4.32 cm (max H)

for £650Has everything I need, big screen, big hard drive, good memory, firewire I/O, and a processor that supports virtualization (so when Windows 7 comes about I can use XP Mode) Only thing I can think that is missing is a blu-ray player, is this much of a problem? Can you guys spot anything else that's missing or not too good? Is the graphics card decent enough?

Bought an acer timeline 5810t at the beginning of the month.The 'speakers' if you can call them that are f*ck*ng sh*t. So low, can't watch youtube videos unles they're loud. Or music unless it's high quality.

Personally would ditch it and try find an Intel based laptop.
Every Intel based laptop I've found has no virtualization technology, except some £1k+ ones but I'm not really on going that high.
