Hi I am planning on buying a laptop. I want to use it for just general stuff i.e. university work and general messing around. I have a desktop to do that.

I don't want a big laptop because I would like to take it to university with me.

I am a student so if there are any I can get cheaper due to been a student that would be good. I am on a budget from 250 - 350 ish.

Thanks, Tom.

Hi Tom,

Have a look at the options here:


Ideally, you're looking for something with a Core i3 processor, at least 3GB of RAM, min. 320GB HDD, max. screen size of 13" and decent battery life.

Computers have never been at a lower price that I can remember, especially notebook computers. With the use of tablets on the rise, you should be able find a nice notebook for a reasonable price. Try the larger retail stores and compare the prices. Many have packages that include a printer, USB driver, and carrying case.

You can go with a HP laptop. I just got it pretty nice one for about $450 including tax.

Have a look at the Asus Eee Pad Transformer. It's actually a tablet, but one to which you can dock to a keyboard.
