Recommend a laptop
« on: Monday 19 July 2010, 07:37:53 PM »
Reet, sick of having to chat to wor lass every night (nearly a week with no lappy now) so someone recommend me  laptop in the £400 region. (less rather than more if possible)

17"
DVD Writer

Just browsing the net really.

Probably a no goer but if its just for browsing the net, what about an ipad?

Even if you don't take to it they are so hot right now it will cost you £50 or so to find out if its for you.



If you must have a Laptop then i'd go acerdirect. (at this budget)

You'd be hard pressed to find a 17 inch laptop for less than £400. The eMachine in the above link comes in at £330ish but not the greatest of makes.
Get a life?  Well, once I nearly found one, but the link was broken.

Bought this one. Bit more than planned but happy with it.

Quick Question; it has an HDMI port. Does that mean i can connect to my TV via HDMI cable or is for recieving an HD signal?

for what use?
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Sleep now in the fire

If its pissing about on the net and music you want an ipad certainly is an option.

If not Acer direct.

It's a netbook. That processor is a ULV, and good for 720p HD with ease.

Asking the question the other way round, what would it not be any good for?
