Default Need new Laptop, but have budget

im on the market for a new computer, preferably a laptop. im mainly going to use it for music and videos, but also some internet surfing.
i would prefer atleast 100 gigs. i would like to spend the least amount of money as possible, if possible under $750. any ideas?

If you look, the second one has 1 gig of ram, and the first only has 512. I would rather have 1 gb of ram than having a slightly(i mean very slightly) faster processor. Even if the hd is smaller, you could always get an external....

I would suggest this

P7350 | GTX 260M | 4GB DDR2 800 | 320GB HD | X-Fi | Vista 64

Folding Rig/File Server

M775 | E1200 | Foxconn P9657AB
| Dual 8800GT | Antec NeoHE 500 | Barracuda 80GB | Wintec Ampx

Doodah... I want you to look up at the third post in this topic. More specifically, third post, last sentence. In fact, if you just read the last word in that post, you'd understand where I'm heading with this.

EDIT: I'm VERY irritated right now, so I'm sorry if I sound partially (read: very) rude. First, it's snowing. And I can't go outside, because my little brother can't go outside while it's snowing, so neither can I. Second, has anyone ever been to the GameFAQs PC Hardware forums? >.< Lastly, I just got back INSIDE from shoveling the driveway, just to find out about reason #1, then I went down to my computer, discovered reason #2, and then came here and posted all 3 reasons.

*sigh* I need to start playing FFXI again.
