Laptop Search

I am looking for some help and advice.

I am seeking to buy a laptop, which will mainly be used for my business that I am looking to set up which is primarily online, via the internet.

However I will also use the laptop to play the odd game of football manager in my spare time.

I think I should be looking for a business laptop, but maybe I am not 100% sure?!

Can anyone advise of things that I should look for? I obviously want the windows works suite with Excel, Word etc...

But I don't really understand all the jargon, so any tips would be useful.

Thanks in advance.

Don't play games on business machines, confine it to what you need to run the business, security software and set up a daily backup routine to an external data store. The future of your business could well depend on the contents of the laptop, don't risk screwing it up by adding extraneous software, particularly games. Keep the two things separate.
