First new laptop- Which one?

  User-1294847 15:22 16 Sep 2008

There are a lot of choices out there but looking for:
1. Under £600 ( The lower the better)
2. Want to do photography, use internet and stream video.
3. Reliable.
4. Able to upgrade hardware.
5. Good custopmer support.
6. As good spec as possible for price.

Would love a Mac but out of my price range.
Can anyone advise?

For reliability the Toshiba brand is hard to beat. They also have a good customer service via the internet and by phone. Since I purchased mine 18 months ago I have upgraded the RAM and the Hard Drive but have not tried to upgrade the processor nor have I even thought about changing the graphics or the WiFi.

click here will guide you through their range and you can then select where you would like to purchase it from. I got mine through ebuyer.

there is not much you can upgrade on a laptop so make sure it is up to the mark before you buy.

"4. Able to upgrade hardware."

System RAM and the hard drive are usually the only upgradeable components on a laptop.
