My budget for the new computer is: €450
The primary uses for this computer are: web browsing, some programming, watching movies, listening to music and using virtual machines.
The software I intend on using on the computer is: VLC media player, VMware Player, Adobe Reader, NetBeans, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, µTorrent

"Lenovo G50-45" seems to be a very good option;
- CPU: AMD A6-6310 (2.40GHz)
- RAM: 6 GB
- Graphics card: AMD Radeon R5 M230
- Cost: €399.00
"HP 250" is - I feel - a bit more reliable;
- CPU: Intel Core i5-3230M (2.60 GHz)
- RAM: 4 GB
- Graphics card: Intel HD Graphics 4000
- Cost: €449.00
