Windows 7: Need Advice on a new developer Laptop.

Need Advice on a new developer Laptop.


I'm looking to buy a new laptop for software development purposes, (plus uni studying). Looking for one with at least 8GB of RAM (On cores not sure if dual or quad, but I guess quad since I multitask a lot). if the laptop budget remains low around 400 then this will also allow me to buy carry cases and extra software if required. Ideally looking for something below 500.

Anyone recommend me one?
