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.
