You’ve been through some amount of laptops… Did you get this one in the end?

Lads, i’ll be needing a new laptop soon as this old girl is dying. There’s a big crack on her side near the on button and i can see inside her, the crack is getting wider when i make sudden movements. It takes a fair while to get her going too, took about 15mins of coercing yesterday evening when i thought it was all over.

Someone please recommend a new laptop to me with all the mod cons at a low low price…


Question for the techies
#33

This is definitely a laptop yeah?


#34

Yes bro.


#35

Right just checking, sounds like you’re talking about something completely different.


#36

Need a new laptop. The old girl is done, i cant even turn her on now. Advice required please, from IT experts like the Runt preferably. Should i buy online or from a shop? I just need something that’s good for internet speed and downloading blue movies. Posting from work for foreseeable future so won’t be online much folks…


#37

The quality of the laptop you have will generally (within reason) not effect either of those.


#38

What’s your price range?
Would you rather a small screen or big screen?


#39

A big screen will let me view things bigger. Price range not more than say €700. I was in a laptop shop yesterday and they had lots of laptops for sale around the €400 - €450 mark - Sony, Samung, Toshiba, Compaq etc. Are any of these particularly better than each other? Also, i took down some notes regarding memory, hard drive and processor.

Processors - Intel Core, Intel Premium and E2 vision. The latter seemed to be with the cheaper models.
Hard drive - 500 GB, 750GB, one laptop had 6GB Ram, presumably this is better?
Memory - 4GB, 6GB, 8GB

Are any of these items more important towards having a decent laptop for internet/downloading? I presume i would need better memory and hard drive as opposed to say a good processor which would be for games??

Advice…

The hard drive is purely the amount of stuff you can store on the laptop.
I would rank processor and then RAM above the hard drive (on a general use laptop).

For €700 you should get a decent machine, i3 processor (or even i5 processor) 2.3Ghz or above, and 4 to 6GB of RAM and you should be very well equipped.
