Laptop advice please....

#1
I have some money spare and i am considering buying a laptop for my bedroom ;P

I have searched the internet and the search bar on here but i still can't put my hand on what i want.
So a little info, i have no idea about laptops and what 'ram' and 'gigahertz' and all the other technical thingy's mean so any advice will be helpful.

With a budget of 250-450 pounds what should i be looking at? The laptop will be used for solely browsing the internet, watching films and coming on RR and absolutely nothing to do with watching adult movies in the privacy of my loft. :glasses7:

Thanks all.

Well, internet and films.
You're not exactly going to be stretching the capabilities of a modern laptop.
Anything you buy that's within your budget will do the job.

Horses for courses - Mac's are excellent but are expensive; toshiba's are excellent also but can be quite expensive.

Sony aren't very good value for money [IMHO] - ACER have some excellent models and have a lot of nice features.

Dell are fine, over the last 5 years [for work] I've bought 3-5000, no problems at all. Tesco are knocking out some on good deals at the minute.

Lion's right. If you aint playing games or doing anything intensive then the cheapest laptop you can find will be right for you. Only thing to consider is average battery life and HD space.

Dell's Laptop innards are virtually the same as most other makes bar sony. Just get one that looks pretty.

If you need something more powerful then pm me. I build performance PC's and laptops (occasionally) myself and have done so for 18 years.

The battery life on my xoom is 10hrs, you can leave it on standby and as you say if you are only going to use it to surf the web, watch movies etc an tablet can easily do that. Plus its good for train journeys, I even read books on mine.

My last two have been HP Pavilion's, which have done the business. I don't play games on it, but this one has a ATI Radeon graphics card which I'm led to believe plays most games. £540 a pair of months ago. Buy 'What Computer' mag, its a good read for buying and cuts past all the jargon.
Cheers mate and I have just this instant been to the shop and bought 8 cans of fosters and a 'What Computer' mag!! I guess I'll have to read this mag, understand the jargon and just splash the cash for a reasonable piece of kit, im in need of viewing the lalalalalalalala thread in more private areas ;-)

I just been trying to discover the difference between an Asda and Tesco plastic bag, whilst doing a Michael Hutchence. Capacity was about the same, grahics were slightly different, operating system was the same. Same end result, so I conclude they were made in the same factory.
For the most part you are spot on.
