Please help me with laptop choice

  Dandandandaman 08:44 09 Feb 2010

Any help is appreciated. I want a laptop for less than £400 and the following things are important to me:-

Basic photoshop
Basic video editing
Streaming live football
Watching HD films
Wireless connectivity
Have numerous things happening all at once such as running spotify, unzipping a file, taking pictures off a camera and having more than one web page open and moving between pages.

Ideally I want to be able to do multiple things and whilst these are happening I still want the internet to be extremely fast in terms of moving between sites and pages.

Things that I don’t need to consider in the slightest:-

Battery life
Weight and size

I am trying to work out whether for my needs I should be going for a better processor or more RAM.
Basically I am interested in either this Dell

with the newer processor or this SAMSUNG

with an extra GB of RAM which should I choose?
If anybody has any alternative laptop suggestions please let me know

doesn't look like your second choice has HD screen

I think you will struggle with either, onboard graphics not ideal for what you want. Better to spend a bit more if you can and get a dedicated graphocs card like click here

The harddrives are very small for video work. Why do you want a laptop? Portability doesn't seem to concern you. You'll get a better screen and everything else with a desktop for the same money.
