Default Buying a new Laptop, would like your advice!

Hi guys am wanting to buy a new Laptop, I will be using it for general things like music, films, work, also i like having a big screen, have got a 15.4'' and would like a 17'' screen next and dual core,also I will be wanting to play games like Counter Strike Source, but not that much!

I really like the look and specs of the hp pavillion, dv9292eu, What are you opinions of this, and This is the top of my budget, I cant really go over £1000,

So thanks for any help and guidance....

toshiba quosimo is an incredible laptop i dont know if its over your budget though. Ebay is great for finding awesome laptops at really cheap prices so select a brand and model and then type it in to ebay and see what you get
