Hey all,

Currently at University and studying for my Computing degree!

And i need a Good Laptop with a great processor and graphics card.

And not so big. So, portable too! :P

My budget is around £400....not too sure about the conversion rate to US dollars!

Thanks,

CrimsonSpider

Hey thanks for the research aleX,

HP: Not too bad...but the processor isn't too good. I think it's my budget that prevents me to upgrade to an i3 or i5 processor. Graphics card isn't all that well either!

Toshiba: The processor is better than I expected. I've looked around and found its good for writing academic reports and essays, as well as multitasking. I'm a person who usually uses the laptops processor to its maximum potential. I'm a student programmer too, so i need something a little stronger. This may be my budget again.
Oh, dear.

Thanks Anyway,

CrimsonSpider

Based on my experience with Lenovo laptops, they are fine built laptops which offer some pretty good performance and stylish designs in my opinion.
