Which laptop is perfect for me?

Hello all,

So I've had my current laptop for 4 years now and it's time for a change. It's had a good run, but it's only got an i3 processor and I've been having some problems with it (mostly running videos smoothly). I was looking to buy a new one in the Black Friday sales. Problem is, at this moment there doesn't seem to be good deals (at least in UK stores/online retailers). I might just go with one that isn't on sale.

What do I need it for? I mostly use it to watch Netflix, YouTube, videos. Use social media. The only game I play on it is Football Manager, although if I get a decent one I would try and play more games on it. Therefore, I would preferably like an i7 processor. I've been told (I'm not that good when it comes to laptop specs) that I'd be best off with SSD rather than HDD. I would also preferably like 8 GB RAM. My budget is £600. I know this is quite small for all my requirements, so I am willing to compromise either on the price or on one of the specs I want.

From what I've been told, an i5 would be sufficient, for your needs, with as high a Graphics Specification you can find. Go with an SSD, but if available ones are too small/expensive, a Disk Drive with 7200rpm would be second best
