Finding a decent notebook...

...is apparently impossible? I just want a notebook with a dual-core x64 CPU (i.e. Turion X2 or Core 2 Duo), WSXGA(+) 14/15.4" screen, reasonable spec which includes some reasonable graphics card. I guess I must be in the minority..

So far I have only found about four matches:

Samsung X60 MWM

  • Core 2 Duo T7200 2 GHz, 1GB RAM, 100GB hard drive, 15.4" WSXGA+ screen, ATI Mobility Radeon x1600.
  • ~£1100
Samsung X60 HWM
  • Core 2 Duo T7400 2.16 GHz, 2GB RAM, 120GB hard drive, 15.4" WSXGA+ screen, ATI Mobility Radeon x1600.
  • ~£1430
Acer TravelMate 8215WLMi
  • Core 2 Duo T7200 2 GHz, 2GB RAM, 160GB hard drive, 15.4" WSXGA+ screen, ATI Mobility Radeon x1600 .
  • ~£1550
Acer Ferrari 5005WLMi
  • Turion 64 X2 TL-60 2 GHz, 2GB RAM, 160GB hard drive, 15.4" WSXGA+ screen, ATI Mobility Radeon x1600, HD DVD-ROM.
  • ~£1550
The Acer models seem overpriced compared to the (first) Samsung model, £1550 seems like too much. But that's not exactly the main problem. Did I mention that none of these models are actually in stock on any UK website?

If you have any suggestions for a good laptop model that roughly matches my requirements feel free to leave it as a comment below. Lookout for an update when I buy my new laptop!
