    I'm going to get a laptop for £600.
    It needs to be from a retail store in the UK.
    Would like a decent graphics card.
    I will watch quite alot of films and will need to plug it into my TV with HDMI.
    Want about 3gb ram
    Around 320gb HDS
    Will need bluetooth

    so, any ideas?

    ...Netbook?

    With hardware modifications, of course.

    what netbook has a gpu, let alone a good one?

    as for laptop recommendations... i've been looking at micro anvika and it seems most laptops at that range will come with intel gma hd. it's not a bad gpu (it's the one built into core i3 and core i5 cpus) but it's not great either. at least it'll be able to play back hd movies and some mid-level games. as for a laptop with the hd5470 you mentioned, there's the hp pavilion dv6-3046. £599, turion ii 2.6ghz cpu, hd5470 gpu, 4gb ram, 500gb hdd, and bluetooth. amd cpus aren't the best for gaming, but they're good enough and they'll keep the costs down (most gaming is done on the gpu anyway). edit: link added.

    just beware of the bloatware:
