Hello, i'm after a new laptop and was wondering if someone can point me in the right direction or give me some advice.


These are the following requirements i am after;


- Windows 7 Operating system (Much prefer it to Windows 8)

- 64-Bit system

- 4GB RAM Minimum

- Intel i3 processor or equivalent as a minimum

- 400GB Hard Drive minimum

- Screen Resolution to be above 1366 x 768

- Anti Glare Screen

- Optical Drive CD/DVD Built in

- Screen Size 12"-14"


Price Budget - £500


All i've seem to find so far (due to the screen requirements) is the HP Elitebook, have also found a few Samsung's but they all seem to be lower resolution than what i'm after (1366 x 768)


Is this my only option? Any other models out there?


Thanks in advance :)

You will get many opinions, I have a Toshiba model C855-S5247 6g ram had a 750 HD just swapped to a 256 SSD.  I love the machine it does more than I need and now is much faster not that it was that slow to begin with.  Asus is my equal choice another great machine.



If you don't stand for the flag then you will fall for anything!
