I usually go for a Medion (Aldi) laptop or base station but they have gone quiet at the mo, it's a laptop I want, does anyone know of a great deal at the moment ? I was looking at the Lenovo ideapad z560 it came out on top of the sub £600 laptop reviews on here and would fit the bill for my sons birthday (20th March)
Can anyone help if they have seen a good spec at a really good price or offer on at the moment ?
Personally I think it's a little expensive for an I3 processor, but it does seem to have all your son will need in the normal use of a laptop. It does have a webcam but I didn't see the resolution stated, is it 0.3 Mpixels or the better 1.3 Mpixels?
Thanks for the reply, the webcam is 1.3mp so it's a good spec, the Lenovo machine is an all round good spec, it's a little pricey for me but I cannot find a more rounded laptop for my money, my son will use it to play games and homework and then my wife will use it for her work.
If you can find me a machine that will do what this one will do for less money I will be happy indeed !
Can anyone recommend a Acer machine that comes near to the Lenovo ?
Taking "gaming" out of the mix and £300 to £500 brings up some great specced machines.
If you are intent on gaming why not ask on the specific Acer forum, click here for suitable models, quoting the games you intend running... this is why it's so important you draw up your own specification for what you want. A £400 laptop may not be such a bargain if it won't do what you want, a £600 one a bit OTT if all you play is chess :)
