Default Re: best laptop on a budget?

can spend about 400 - 500, just want a laptop that will do for now, for films/music/games - just to keep me busy whilst at sea, preferably somethin that i would be able to upgrade if needed so it doenst go to far out of date over the next 12months.

is my budget too low? would you recommend me just holding on to save some more ?
