I'm currently in the market for a new laptop. I need it for low-medium spec gaming, editing photos, etc. Nothing too major, but would be nice to get something relatively decent so I don't have to upgrade it for a few years.
Been looking at Dell's latest offer on the 15" £549 laptop: click here
I also rang them up and asked them to tweak the specs a little:
Core 2 Duo T6500 processor, 2.1Ghz 512MB Ati HD 4570 4096MB RAM 320GB HD (7,200rpm)
Do you think this is a good deal, or should I wait for something better to come along?
That is a good deal indeed. The best alternative for the money I can find so far is a Toshiba Satellite P300-1GL click here:
- Core 2 Duo T6400 2.00GHz (slightly lower CPU) - 4GB RAM - 320GB HDD - HD3650 Graphics 512MB (comparative to the HD4570) - 17" (2" larger than Dell's)
Note that both laptops have a glossy/reflective screen: Dell with TrueLife & Toshiba with TruBrite. It would be best to see what this looks like firsthand - perhaps in a shop selling similar type screens - & in comparison to a matte screen, before opting for one. They are a bit of an acquired taste & you can either love them or hate them! G
