#1104

@TreatyStones
Buying a decent laptop for the missus. Is Dell still a decent buy ?


#1107

Ya, always the safest bet I find.


#1108

the XPS 13 is an incredible piece of kit


#1109

What’s your budget?


#1110

If you are spending a few quid make sure you get a Solid State Hard Drive (SSD).


#1111

They are the biznis so they are


#1112

usually as standard now mate


#1113

Only concern is you’ll sacrifice storage space for a SSD generally.


#1114

ah ya. If you’re running a big cunt of an application or multiple big cunts…

storage space can be mitigated by a good cloud backup plan


#1115

Not really.
A lot of mid-range laptops will still come with a 1TB hard drive as standard so they can proclaim to be able to store 10 million hours of music etc.

#1118

That’s a lot of spec. What are the main uses for it?
