Laptop advice

  Sirpad 18:30 15 Dec 2010

I need some help getting a laptop for my daughter for xmas. She basically uses facebook (big surprise there) and watches movies on hulu and the like so no gaming. She doesn't want a Netbook.
Anything from Dell, PCWorld or Currys is fine, and easier for me.
Max I'd like to spend is about 450.00

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Hi ya, I've tried Dell and HiGrade (Catalogue model which used Acer parts) and wasn't impressed. My latest laptop is a Toshiba model and I'm very happy with it.

From their site, I'd say something like this would more than suffice. click here That's my suggestion, plus Toshiba support is very good, in my opinion.

I would use PC World/Currys with caution, not because they sell poor laptops, but because of the many instances of poor after sales service reported on this forum, if anything goes wrong. If you are happy to buy online then ebuyer have many suitable laptops at very compeative prices and free delivery click here=[200+TO+499.99]&filterca35=Intel+Core+i3&limit=10&page=1. This looks a particularly good deal click here, with an up to date core i3 processor and decent sized hard drive for storage.
