My budget is 400 and i am looking to buy a laptop

It Must be 15 inch + or more

all i use it for is internet and basic things and multi tasking

it must also be very very fast booting, opening programs

best thing i found is this ?

has 6gb - which is very fast under 400 and has 15 inch

can you beat that ?

Thanks Thank You

If you wanted a very fast booting and opening programs, you would have to get a SSD because it's a lot faster then a standard hard drive. Toshiba Satellite C660-23M has faster i3 processor then the laptop you chose and Toshiba generally has better build quality.

A SSD is a data storage device that has no moving parts which is why it is fast. The ram for multitasking. Most laptops don't include SSD, only expensive gaming laptops or custom built laptops usually has it. You can replace the hard drive in the Toshiba but you would have to re-install everything again and SSD are quite expensive for the large capacity one.

HP is just unreliable and has a high failure rate. The ASUS A53E-SX331S 15.6" Laptop - Red has the latest 2nd generation i3 processor and this on has a HDMI.

say that its nice but i think i might get this

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Toshiba-Satellite-C660-23M-Notebook-Processor/dp/B005EY1SE4/ref=sr_1_3?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1317086623&sr=1-3

i really want a hdmi :( but the acer you gave has only 4gb ram :( and 140gb less hardrive and 0.2ghz less and costs higher

so unless i find something better i might get the tosiba 80% sure but still looking for a better bargin! will wait 2 weeks

Thanks :)

It's a Asus not a Acer. 4GB of ram is plenty, i barely even reach 4GB when gaming on my system which has 8GB. 0.2GHz less doesn't matter, you won't see the difference and the Asus has the newer way faster i3 then that Toshiba. 500GB isn't that bad and it's pretty standard for most laptops to have it.
