  • Help me decide on a new laptop please

    Hi, My parents have said they will get me a laptop for my 21st birthday, so i need some ideas.

    The first question would be should i go for a Dell or another brand?
    The second question would be, if i do get a dell or another branded laptop could i buy a second battery from them?

    I thought i would make a poll, cus some people say dell are brilliant and others say don't touch them.

    Here is what i will be after, i won't be using it for games.

    BASE
    Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T8100 (2.10 GHz, 800 MHz FSB, 3 MB L2 cache)

    OPERATING SYSTEM
    Genuine Windows Vista® Home Premium - English

    WEBCAM
    2.0 Mega pixel web camera

    COLOUR CHOICE
    Expresso Brown Colour with Microsatin Finish

    LCD
    15.4" Wide Screen WXGA (1280 x 800) Display with TrueLife™

    MEMORY
    4096MB 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [2x2048]

    HARD DRIVE
    250GB (5400RPM) SATA Hard Drive

    GRAPHICS CARD
    Integrated Intel® Graphic Media Accelerator X3100

    OPTICAL DRIVE
    8x DVD+/-RW Optical drive, including SW

    PRIMARY BATTERY
    6-cell 56WHr Li-Ion primary battery

    Regards

    dell are great for cheap systems, they have a buying power that is unmatched so they get stuff cheaper and sell it cheaper. however if your not after a cheap as chips word processor you would be better getting from elsewhere.

    tbh i think asus have some great laptops out atm and the have a great warrenty too. it all does depend on what you want and how much your looking to spend tho.

      I want one mainly for work on the go, so everything apart from Gaming. A budget of up to £800 but lower if possible.

                      Me neither, but my reason is I've never been to the shop
