New Laptop

Postby Neptune24 » Tue Jan 08, 2013 2:15 pm

Hi guys.

I need help finding a new laptop.

I'm after something that has the following

Decent processor
6-8GB RAM
500GB HDD
15 - 17 inch screen
HDMI port


It will be used for moderate photo editing. Clearing photos up mostly
Office work
Internet surfing
Moderate gaming (Sims Mediveal is the heaviest it gets)
Video streaming
Music playing and such like

Looking at about £500 budget
And something that will last a while

Any help appreciated

Thank you

Just go with the big brands. You know, like Dell, HP,Lenovo or something like that. Just go get what fits your budget. They are all going to suck.

Is there anywhere that sells laptops at a lower than average price??

And for what I am looking for, what sort of budget should I be aiming for??
