I'm looking for small notebook (10 - 13 inch), but there's so many to choose from, so where to start!


I should say I'm looking to spend upto £300, either new or good 2nd hand items.


I want it for web browsing, blogging, cropping images, etc. It won't be used for gaming, but good video would be an advantage.


I also want a good battery life (5 hours plus). And ideally it should look good, as it will occasionally be used in meetings.


Regarding OS, Windows is first choice, but could use Android or iOS (although my budget probably rules this out anyway).


Anyway, can anyone recommend anything?

Let me say to start, I am a noob-so this is just imo.  And you got no feedback yet.


I would stick with HP or Dell personally.


Stick with Intel Hardware.


Look for i3 or i5 and at least 4GB of RAM for that price.  Not sure what is available over the pond, but you might be able to get an new i5 pc with 8GB of RAM and that would be good.  Also, if it is for work-you might want a good size HDD I don't know how much and what kind of stuff you would be saving to the pc.


imo windows 7


Battery life you will need to look at when you buy.  Usually you want one with more cores like 6-12
