    Need a new laptop as mine is on its last legs. Would like some help picking out a new one. Want to spend no more than £500 and only use if for playing a few games like Football Manager and Starters Orders but need a decent size hard drive as the one ive got is tiny. Cheers blues

    sounds like you can buy anything you want (you don't need anything with spectacular performance) - and I'd suggest looking on Ebay for the best bargain than shopping in the high street; you'll find many clearance specialists with new and/or 'like new' refurbished kit, and save yourself some cash you can then spend on other stuff. Also you could check the outlet store on Dell's own site - always worth a look.

    500 quid ($750) sounds like an awful lot for a laptop - if you don't require something with all the bells and whistles, and many manufacturers are selling entry level kit here in the States for half this price; although admittedly in the UK you'll need to multiply our prices by at least a third.

    find yourself a model from last year (that was released 6 to 9 months back) and you'll save yourself some money.

    not sure if this might work for you, but you can try it: <a class="postlink" href="http://www.dell.com/uk/dfh/p/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.dell.com/uk/dfh/p/</a>

    Cheers will have a look at that. Had a Sony Vaio in the past and it was excellent so been looking at them but looks like i'll be paying an extra £100 just for the name.

    Like you really care where I am. Fuck you Kyle.

    Sounds like it's got bad legs according to the op... Probably needs a new hip or something.

    Try somewhere like Aria or Scan, the two I used to build my PC.
