Buying a laptop

Postby Jb's on Fri Feb 03, 2012 1:26 am

Hey posting this on behalf of a friend.

He is looking to buy a new laptop for studies and such and hopes to spend £450 max. Not looking for anything specific just value for money.
He hopes it will be able to run games like css and sc2. Is that realistic for that price range? I don't have a clue :geeky:

If anyone could link some possibilities would be much appreciated.

Not bad for the money but games & laptops in my opinion normally = huge £'s
I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandad
not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car.

That is a good laptop for the money, and I doubt you would get another one within that price bracket with an i5 CPU.
