    I'm after a laptop, what should I look out for?

    I've always had a PC but now I'm looking to buy a laptop for the portability. I've not really been keeping upto date with laptops, so can anyone advise me on what I should be looking for? Looking to spend maybe £500 to £750. ($1000 to 1500) Will be mostly using it for surfing the net, some web design, watching DVD/movies, downloading porn, nothing too demanding really.. battery life must be good.

    Any brand recommendations? I like the sound of Sony Viao ones. Seen plenty of Acer ones too.. and the obvious Dell is everywhere. How important is having a warranty? I was going to consider buying a pre-owned one from ebay.
