I'm looking for a new laptop and I'm hoping people can give me some suggestions on what's best to buy.
Windows is always crashing on me and I really dislike Windows 8. I've considered the Macbook Air but they're not exactly cheap and I believe if they go wrong it's hard/expensive to repair.
I want good quality hardware and a decent operating system (ideally something other than Windows).
I plan to use it for video editing and just general use (e.g. surfing the web, microsoft office etc).
I also really want a laptop that's (pretty) light.
I'd prefer it to be £700 or less, but £500 or less would be even better.
I'm happy to buy an Operating System and put that on (if it comes with Windows 8). I'd rather not be messing with the hardware though.
What laptop am I best off buying? Any suggestions?
