I plan on buying two laptops tomorrow.

This one for my brother:
HP G61-110sa £399
Intel Pentium Dual-Core processor T4300
(2.16Ghz, 667Mhz, 1MB Cache)
Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium
4GB Memory
320GB Hard drive

And for myself I was looking at more expensive one [because I'll use it more, run photoshop and programs alike]
HP DV7-2230sa £699
* Intel Core 2 Duo processor T6600
* (2.2Ghz, 800Mhz, 2MB Cache)
* Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium
* 4GB Memory
* 500GB Hard drive

Do you think it is worth spending an extra 300 quid on the second system? And, is the HP g61-110sa a good deal?
Looking to keep these laptops for 3-4 years or so.

As long as the HP G61-110sa is used for basic, everyday usage, it should do!

Specs on the HP DV7-2230sa look good.

Do you think it is worth spending an extra 300 quid on the second system?

Well, everyday 17" notebooks do fall in the $600 -800 price range.

I would also suggest you look for user reviews on the two HP models you are considering.
