Thread: Which new lap top to buy?

  1. #1

    Which new lap top to buy?

    My ancient ASUS has died it is probably 7 years old (Runs Vista!!) so I need to get another laptop.

    Will be just used for normal daily stuff eg e mail getting on SD and handling my pictures off phone and camera, and alike. Nothing fancy. Budget of 350. Any suggestions of what to buy and what not to buy.

    Have been advised that I5 processor is better than I3

    Any suggestions?

    i5 over i3 certainly - and i7 better still. Purely because it's bang on budget and a great spec - check this out - job done:

    Buy Toshiba Portege R930 i7-3520M 2.9GHz 13.3 8GB 128GB SSD Windows 7 Pro at IJT Direct

    There was a discount code 'rsc33' that knocked 50 off - just check the discount code sites - I know there's a 10% kicking round as well that does the same sort of thing.

    MacBook Pro.

    Superb.

    Makes microsoft look so antiquated.
    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.

    We have a 17" Toshiba that is about 4 years old and has done well for a home computer. Cost about 350 new.

    It may be worth looking at a deal on the pcspecialist website - that's where I'm going to buy a high spec CAD laptop from at some stage.

    ijt (the company I recommended above) have some run out MacBooks at a similar price point. I felt the PC was a better spec and a bit more mainstream. Can't deny Apple OS is good once you get used to it. I run both.

    If it's mainly for email, web and photos etc then I'd consider just getting an iPad

    I don't know about laptops but I was bullied into buying a imac buy my brother who is an IT guru and I can honestly say it is the best thing I ever did, it is 4 years old now and has never crashed, no more hours of angst trying to retrieve lost files whilst staring at the blue screen of death. Apple products are double the cost for the initial purchase but if you value your time, half the cost to operate.
    As others have said, go for apple
