Hi Guys,

I know this question may be like 'How long is a piece of string?' but I am looking for an all round, good value, laptop for home computing.

Would anyone venture to recommend any of these?
My price range is from the page that opens and the page that follows, i.e. two pages from PC World and two pages from Currys.

Very many thanks for your kind assistance.

Why talk in riddles? Is your max budget £380 then?

Yes, Maj, unless you thought there was a very strong case for going to £400.

Thank you.

This one looks like decent value click here parkhead. What's most important to you in a laptop, because you can get some with a lesser processor but more memory and a larger hard drive, but that one looks like a good all-rounder.

If it helps, I don't need a huge hard drive but speed of operation is always useful. I really appreciate you taking the time to recommend although I'm a bit old fashioned in that I would probably prefer to buy from a store so that I have got somewhere to go back to if a problem arises hence me checking out PC World and Currys.
