Looking for a laptop mainly for Lightroom. Display is most important quality was going to go down Mac road, displays are fantastic but latest pro's seem very costly. Is there anything PC wise I should be looking at. Saw display on Surface pro which is great but in my eyes, colour wise not quite as good as the retina displays. Is there anything out there that rivals the Mac display?

Check it out. Worth every penny.

Even better but more expensive

More accurate than your 'retina' display...

Both of those can run anything you can throw at them and more...

Can't recommend anything cos I only use macs but you had a nose on the refurb store? http://www.apple.com/uk/shop/browse/home/specialdeals/mac - sometimes, high spec returns appear, not been used but box opened. They're expensive but have you considered an iMac? I have the 5K and it's absolutely beautiful.

Thanks '21' the zenbook looks fantastic and what I was looking for pricewise, my only worry is that the screen is glossy, which would mean I could omly use it in ideal conditions. Claire The 5k imac's are beautiful and at some point I can see myself going down this route atm I have a decent 27 ips screen with a windows set up that still has quite a bit of life left in it, I wanted something portable  the macbooks loook too expensive but I keep getting drawn back to their screens. I'll look at that refurb store or might way up pros and cons of a decent ipad pro and using lightroom mobile and syncing on main computer, not my first choice.

Hi guys, basically, I know pretty much fuck all when it comes to laptops, but I am in need of a new one. All I'd really use it for would be doing uni work on, using the internet and playing footy manager - but I'd also like it to be quite small and light. Am i right in assuming that laptops used for games such as FM are usually bigger and bulkier and more powerful?

I was looking at the Lenovo ThinkPad, or possibly a preowned Mac, but like I said I am pretty much an amateur so I don't really know what I'm looking for!

My budget would be around 400-500.

Wondering if these specs on a new laptop are achievable for a 400 budget:

i5 processor  (or 6th/7th Gen i3)
1TB HDD
8GB RAM  (though I can always upgrade this later on)
15.6" screen
My Twitter

Last time I went there I saw masturbating chimpanzees. Whether you think that's worthy of 22 is up to you. All I'll say is I now have an annual pass.

A quick look on Ebuyer says yep. Saw these 2:

HP 250 G5 i3 Laptop X0Q06ES 360 (Bigger SSD)
Acer Aspire E-14 (E5-475) Laptop 390 (Better processor but 14")

What do you want to be able to do with the laptop? Both have U processors which are more for portable laptops than a powerhouse.

It's for the wife, she keeps a lot of her music on her old laptop but it's dying (one of those where it's taking an age to power up and only works with the power cable plugged in) but she wants to be playing some semi-intensive games.  She likes the simulator'type games plus she's possibly changing directions in work so she's likely multi-tasking with it.  That's why I've gone with a traditional HDD rather than an SSD as boot-up time isn't a major issue.  A 15.6" is better than portability as it likely won't be leaving the house too often, but we're too tight for space for a desktop.

I have this one: http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/medion-akoya-e6421-core-i5-6200u-8gb-1tb-15.6-inch-windows-10-laptop-30020525/version.asp and I got that for 370 so I was hoping a similar spec would be about.  I guess the fall in the pound is a big factor in prices at the minute.

I found an SSD made a massive difference when playing Footy Manager which is a simulation game, SSD's are more than just a fast boot up time. If it was me I'd stick with an SSD, 8GB RAM and after that just look for the laptop with the best processor whilst staying within your budget. I'm not up to date with which sites/shops are the best but you can always look on Laptops Direct, Amazon and Ebuyer.

I think it's one of those where I can see the benefit of an SSD but she mightn't.  A hybrid drive would be ideal but they're hard to come across whenever I've looked (unless they only fit 3.5" bays) as the storage aspect is fairly important to her.  I'll see what sort of SSD I can get, I think 256GB would probably be a minimum though.

I usually use all three of those btw, I used to use Dabs until BT bought it out.

Can anyone recommend a good Laptop which can dock?

I like the use of a 'desktop' but also want the portability of a laptop so looking for something that can dock into a monitor/mouse/keyboard set up and can also easily be picked up and taken away.

Depends on your price range. I've always liked the Dell XPS range but Dell do quite a few laptops which dock as a lot of companies use them as business laptops. My work laptop is a Dell and the dock it uses connects via USB rather than through a port in the base which the older ones used to use. I find the USB connection better as we had some issues in work with the pins in the base port getting bent.

My mate had one of those and had the same problems, with his eventually just not starting up. It then broke down after about 6 months of him having it. However his brother had used it before with no issues, but not sure for how long. Would be no harm in taking it back and getting them to look at it, but it does seem its a common feature of that laptop unfortunately.

hmm, see the thing is when it load it up its slow af, after 20 minutes or so its perfect and fast, i do really like the touch screen/tablet feature though, i may just take it back and see what they say to be on the safe side

Apologies posted on wrong forum , moved to Technology

Im sure a tedious question for you guys who live in the mythical world of computer technology...but whats the best Lap top circa 750 ( dunno if thats an appropiate figure but at moment thats the budget).

Ditching our Dell Computer as moving house will mean less space and a lap top seems the more appropiate direction. It will mainly be used for internet browsing, domestic files and my lad will play internet games. Music would be played as well.

Any advice  or guidance welcome

personally (similar usage) I went for best spec I could get for below 300, in my experience they last about 3-5 years and then I get another, in 4 years you get a higher spec for similar money, so around 750 for 10 years of laptop. 

Most of my browsing is now on my phone.

Would appreciate some advice on getting a new laptop to be used for MS Office, general surfing and downloading.  I'm a teacher and need a second laptop for prep work.

Currently using an Acer Travelmate 5744 i3-380M 2.53GHz with 4GB RAM which is about 5 years old but works very well and is plenty fast enough.

Have been looking at the HP 14 Inch Intel Celeron 4GB 1TB from Argos as it's only 250 and wanted a large HDD to back up photos and music.   Processor speed is 1.6 GHz though.  Is that fast enough for what I need do you think or should I go for similar to what I had last time?

Celerons are a bit wimpy when it comes to processing power normally, I'd say look for a Pentium for a price range under 300 myself, something like this might be a bit better, plus a 15.6" screen too.

What do people reckon on this?

Apart from the lack of SSD that seems to be a really capable machine. It's not going to be a high performance gaming rig but it'll play a load of last gen games at high res I suspect and will be a great productivity/general laptop.

Apart from the lack of SSD that seems to be a really capable machine. It's not going to be a high performance gaming rig but it'll play a load of last gen games at high res I suspect and will be a great productivity/general laptop.

yeah, i'm not gonna be using it for gaming, i'll just stick to my ps4 there. the 5 year warranty, shock/drop proof build, plus the specs are the selling points for me here. i'll have a look for anything cheaper though

Then SSD is a must. They can withstand up to 1,500 g during operation or 25 times that of a standard drive.

Can anyone reccomend a laptop purely for just internet use and the odd bit of streaming? Looking at a lenovos maybe? Budget of around 300
