£400 on a Laptop

  drewett 11:47 22 Jan 2009

Basically i need to get a new Laptop and i'm looking at spending no more than £400.

I will be only using the Laptop for basic word processing, surfing the net, storing music+films and it must be able to run Football Manager 09.

I have come accross a couple of options and was just looking for peoples opinions and recommendations.

Judging by specification alone, I would suggest that, any of the first two, would easily cope with your game, not have any problems with your other requirements.

The Samsung has a slightly better graphics chipset.

Would one of these be better?

Try Staples, PCWorld, Tescos, Lidl or Aldi

Out of the Laptops i've listed included the two Sony's, what one would you say is the best buy?

I have the HP6735s which i purchased just before christmas. I'm very happy with it, and the service offered by ebuyer. I particularly like the matt screen offering no reflection (and no distractions,) the build quality is good and the matt black look is nice. I can't tell the difference between intel and AMD in regular use. It's a great value laptop!
