Which new laptop? Budget around £400

  Damo1977 15:58 25 Sep 2009

Hey guys,

I currently have a Sony Vaio FS115B Laptop which is a bit dated now and the specifications struggle with some of the things I need it for these days. Anyway thinking about replacing it and wanted some help and advice......

I currently use my laptop for work as well but pretty soon I will be getting a Samsung NC10 and this will be specifically for my work as I need it on the go. So I just need a laptop that my girlfriend can use for web browsing etc and also downloading my videos from my new HD Camcorder.

I'm hoping to get a decent one for around £400 and just a 15" screen is fine. But I'm not sure about what sort of processor I need or any other specifications really but any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

What are the brands to consider and more importantly what are the brands to avoid??

Mentioned before on this subject suggest you take a look at your local Staples Store.
Some great bargains to be had!
