And I went for the cheapest I can find. Eventually found one for just £300. I only browse the net, look after my websites and maybe play a game or two, so most modern laptops, no matter how low the spec, are good enough for that.
but I doubt if I'll do that again. I currently have two laptops, the one just referred to, and a machine that I paid a shade over £500 for. To be honest, I get just as much from the cheaper machine in terms of productivity - the more expensive laptop goes travelling with me because it's very thin and light.
