Few questions from a n00b! tommysport 14:47 16 Oct 2015 Locked Hi guys. So after having my basic Packard Bell i3 4gb laptop for 4/5 years now, it's time to upgrade. I don't know much about laptops, but I can understand comparing specs. I would like it to be Windows, have an i5 Processor, 8gb Ram, 1TB+ Hard drive, possible dedicated graphics card or standard one? 15" or 17" screen size (HD), and of course a backlit keyboard! Good speakers would be a benefit aswell. My main questions are: Windows 8.1 or 10? i5 processors, which is the latest generation? I keep seeing i5 5200-U processors, are these the one to go for? Which brands? I keep going back to HP - these any good? Dell? Budget of around £500-£600 maybe more for the right one. Any help seriously appreciated!
