Hi, just wanted some advice on what laptop to purchase. I have been looking at these two as my budget is low and would like to know which one you would recommend. I would just use it for browsing the internet, watching films, downloading music and playing basic games such as football manager 2011 or minecraft.These are the two:
As a generalisation I'm more inclined to the HP brand, but one HP laptop and one HP All-in-one in the family tells me different. One has had 2 new motherboards, the other a fault in the original design meaning a £300+ repair bill. You pay through the nose for repairs and they're not interested in telling you whatthe faults are.
In laptops I think Acer currently has a better reputation, but good luck anyway.
As another generalisation, they're flaky, difficult or impossible to upgrade, expensive, underpowered... and you can't use them on your lap.
Desktop every time.
