Stay away from Compaq laptops, I have seen atleast 4 instances where the display, motherboard, web cam got replaced with a year.
I am using Acer 4530 from last 1.5 yrs has no complaints, can't say about service because never got a chance to call the support.

get Dell or Acer. no to Compaq, HP (heating issues) & at least Mac (Job sucks :grin:)

as your budget, try get a laptop having these:

Core i3 or Athlon II X2 (maybe Turnion M200/M500).
3Gb DDR3 or more.
HDD you know.
Blueray not possible. settle for DVD writer.
if possible get a discrete graphics like HD4650 (rest are all bakwaas, specially GT310, HD5450, etc) or HD5650 (not possible in your budget). also 1Gb or 512Mb memory tells nothing about graphics power.
14" screen.
6 cel battery.

done. go through Acer & Dell's laptop range. u may get one resembling the config.

Inspiron 14R (T540510IN8) is good....bt the specs dont specify about dvd writer dual layer ability and the graphics settles for intel HD video card..

HD4330 is useless. if you can, get a lappy based on AMD proccy. you'll get IGP (HD3200M or HD2400M, same power as HD4330) & it'll b must cheaper. look out for Acer laptops.
