As a brand Compaq doesn't always rate if you believe all you read, but I bought a shitty little thing years back and it's still kicking fine.

PS: I built a desktop a couple years back and now the laptops (like this one) are just as powerful and even my mum has one still in the box that was an old age crisis buy that equals my pc and I really should see about 'borrowing' that one.

Yeah but if you wait around 4 years and are willing to spend the same money again (100 quid a year) you'll probably get your upgrade in a new lappy. That's my theory anyway, don't hold me to it.

The only reason I wouldn't go for a lappy is for the screen size. I got a second screen for my desktop, and it was the best thing I did. Compared to all that squinting, and opening and closing windows, but it's up to you.

U can get a pretty decent intel i5 desktop pc on ebay for around £350 that will blow that laptop out the water and give u the option of upgrading.

PCs over laptops for producing any day. I got 2 20 inch monitors connected as well which solves a lot of problems as well

If your forking out I'd go for a desktop mate, spesh for producing. also i'd say build it your self, cheaper and for the same price it'll be better. it's quite simple to do as well. www.scan.co.uk
