What spec will I need from a laptop?

  fuzzel 12:40 12 Oct 2007


I'm looking to buy a latop to be used purely for playing internet poker, so no great need for multimedia use or file storage, just a fast and reliable internet connection and fast processing.

Can anyone suggest the sort of spec I should be looking for and how much I can expect to spend.

Any help much appreciated.

As you're not going to be doing any heavy duty number crunching or graphics work, I'd get the cheapest one I could lay hands on. £350 ish.

Depends on your budget, but look at these:

The first two from the left are more then enough. I'd go for the second one in, as it is slightly better and has just had a price drop, so they are both equal price.
