RE: Need help buying a laptop
Hmm... for $800, you can get a fairly good laptop. And your getting Vista regardless. (but I highly advise you to find a way to get XP, Vista is just too damn slow on my own laptop) - 1 GB RAM, 140 GB HDD (it's 160, but a good chunk is used for recovery and Vista itself)

HP has a good selection on laptops that are even $600 on their website, and Newegg.com has a ton of selections.

In my own experiences with Vista, it just ain't worth the hassle. I've already had trojans from who knows where after 3 recoveries and I still get them. I don't ever have that kind of problem with XP, so who knows.. For all I know, Vista is a useless OS with crap for security, and it's "eye candy" Aero theme.

Is there a way of narrowing my results? Play.com just gives me a huge list.

Search for higher and higher specs with the lowest price, best way to do that :)

You could have looked through them all by now :P
It doesn't exactly take long to just scan down the list looking at only the prices.

you can use dabs.com to narrow down options to find exactly what you want

just keep clicking on the different things you want until you're left with only a few laptops
