    Default What laptop?

    Hi,

    looking to buy a new laptop - my budget is £500 max. Just wondering what laptops you recommend and also where are the best places to purchase one?

    Have been looking at ebuyer and ebay, maybe not the best?

    thanks
    Jools

    I have just, two weeks ago bought an Advent 9215 from PC World.
    It has a Pentium Dual Core 1.6Ghz Processor
    15.4" Widescreen
    2GB Memory
    160GB hard drive
    Optical DVD rewriter
    3 USB's
    Intergrated webcam
    Wireless
    Windows Vista Home Premium


    I paid £429.
    I Have to say I found it to be about the best, pound for performance wise and I am very happy with it!

    Don't dismiss Staples.........cheap prices.

    They are end of line but aren't all computers once you have bought them..

    They have a very nice Fujitsu Siemens Li 1718

    Intell duel core T2080 processor
    1GB ram
    120GB hard drive
    Vista Premium

    All for £349 but you need to visit the store and there is one in Aberdeen

    I bought a Dell back in March, and would never buy another one!

    They seem to live off a reputation form 5 years ago, where all there stff was the bo!!ock's, but now everyone has caught up and their stuff is just ordinary!

    Some blinding deals on lesser known Laptop's that have really good spec can be got nowadays.

    Judging by my recent dealings with Acer (had one that lasted 5 days, supplied a desktop that was DOA and their pathetic excuse of customer and tech support) and the amount of "refurbished" Acer'* at a local 2nd user dealer I think I would give them a miss at the moment.

    As Ben said you can get some good deals on decent makes at the moment, can't go far wrong with a Toshiba, Lenovo or HP and Ebuyer can be vwry competitive.
