    Default Spec me a laptop

    Budget of around 300-350, used mostly for photo editing on the go and general web browsing so GPU performance isn't important at all.

    Need at least 8GB memory and a decent high quality screen, I'll put an SSD in it myself so not that fussed about what sort of drive it comes with as it will be taken out.

    Any recommendations?

    Look for an IPS display, though they tend to start in the upper 300s.

    Maybe look around some of the refurb companies.

    I just bought a laptop for my mum.

    Dell Something
    2.8Ghz i5
    8Gb RAM
    500Gb HD
    1 Year warranty

    70.

    I'll take a look. 70 is an absolute steal to be honest.

    I know

    I stuck a 500gb ssd in there, so it took the total cost up to about 160-170ish, but still not bad at all!
