  • New laptop

    I want a relatively cheap, but a good performance laptop for University. I'm willing to spend about 700 or below. Some model numbers would be good Cheers

      Agreed.

      A lot of the Lenovo Edge (E) series are on offer at the minute.

      Picked up an E525 customised on the Lenovo Store with AMD A8-3500M, 4GB RAM, 7200RPM 320GB HDD and a 9-Cell battery for 380 with the 10% discount which has now expired I think - it's still only 420 without that though.

      The battery will typically last ~10 hours doing things like word documents with the screen on lowish brightness, upping the brightness to high lowers the battery to 7-8 hours.

      Build quality is spectacular and the laptop is pretty speedy too.

      Looks a lot nicer in real life than it does in pictures too.

      Lenovo support and warranty is top notch too - just ask Pancake!

      My E525 scores 10/10 from me once I removed the Pre-Installed Norton!

                  I just got a Lenovo E525 as well with the AMD A8 3500 chipset, it is pretty superb for the price, only had it a few days so far but really pleased with it, got mine for 400 with 500gb 7200 HDD, 4GB Ram and decent battery life (About 10 hours).

                    Identical to mine then.

                    Equally impressed.

                    It doesn't really game very well (can't play F1 2010 on low with 0xAA) but that's not what it's really designed for.

                    E520 is also an option if you prefer some Intel Sandy Bridge action.
