I need Help!

My 4 year old Dell Inspiron 9400 crashed last week and I need to replace it. My budget for the computer is up to $850, but the cheaper the better. I want something with at least 250GB Hard Drive, 14" screen minumum, and Intel processor, WiFi capability build in. The OS doesn't matter though I'd prefer XP. I am open to a Mac if it is at the right price. If it has bluetooth capability that is a plus, but I know the chips can be bought for $30 so am not too worried.

I have focused my search on Macs, HPs, and Lenovo IdeaPads). I also can't find many reviews for the IdeaPad's so am not sure how they are in terms of functionality and service.

Any help, suggestions, or tips would be great. I have no clue what speed processor, Ram, screen, graphics are good these days, but just use the computer for basic home work with Office, some minor photoshop, and web surfing.

Thanks!
