Honestly it depends on the specific laptop. Also to let you know that HP and Compaq are the same company in case you want to look in that direction. It depends on your range but I'd look for the following specs

At least 2GB Ram and I recommend 3GB because it'll make everything run more smoothly.
At least 160GB Hard Drive
Pretty much stuck with vista
dvd burner
and a core 2 duo processor but don't rule out amd turionx2 because there are many out there that will outperform an intel machine in the same range.

Post some links of some you're considering

I have always had good luck with gateway toshiba and compaq. Yes i know compaq and HP are the same, but for some reason i like the compaq end better.
