Need help picking a laptop?

  FullFatMayo 16:37 03 Mar 2015

So my laptop at the moment is on its last legs and I need to replace it. As the title suggests I am not to confident in picking one specific one as am not to into computers and the like. I have a few requirements and have seen some that fit the description nicely and would like someone advice on them or any others that may fit my description.


  • £500ish
  • Laptop
  • Needs to be able to run current games smoothly (high graphics doesn't bother me too much, just like it to be smooth)
  • Preferably windows
  • Other things such as touch screens would be seen as good if they were their but not essential

Laptops I've seen:

  • Lenovo Z50 or Z50-70
  • Toshiba Satellite L50

As I said if you happen to know any others that fit the bill that would be great. Thanks in advance as any reply would be gratefully received.

This Toshiba seems a bargain. John Lewis gives a longer free guarantee than most.

Toshiba 5i
