    Martin Lewis's MoneySavingExpert.com website has a Technical Forum with an extremely long running thread (since August 2004) called The Great 'Cheapest Decent Laptop' Hunt (you may have to sign up, I don't know) and if you look near the end of the (current) 1258 posts, you'll obviously find the more recent stuff.
