Default Buying Budget Laptop

Hey guys,
I'm interested in buying a laptop just to work on when im not at home (not going to be used for gaming or anything).
I just wanted inbuilt wireless network, 256mb ram, onboard gfx card, dvd burner, large screen if possible (17"), 80gg+ HDD... Any suggestions?

My budget would have to be about $850AUD Max, anything under that would be great.

Ahh ok then, 512mb, I will most probably upgrade it to 1gb later on.
