    Lap tops

    Talk to me!

    Need to buy one, any recommendations? Needs to be Windows based but to be honest, despite being a CAD supervisor at work I know nothing about computers lol!

    Help!

    If I wasn't an apple person I'd buy Dell awesome spec with great customer service and even better computers

    Mine was £250 secondhand, one of the best things I've bought. HD widescreen and a useful hdmi out plug so I can watch internet TV on my actual TV. I did laugh at my gf's cousin with her 'i'laptop (whatever i something they call them) - cost £1000 and does pretty much nothing that mine can't

    Yeah, prefer not to get into the whole Apple thing just now. Not say that I wouldn't do it in the future.

    Cheers for the recommendations. Not too bothered about HDMI outputs as I rinse internet telly through my PS3
