Hey

My old laptop recently packed up and I need a replacement. Unfortunately, I have a very limited budget of £300. I know that this isn't a lot to spend, but I want to try and get the most for my money. I would be willing to by a refurbished machine.

I won't be using it for anything too demanding, browsing, streaming video and TV, downloading the occasional film etc.

If anyone has any ideas about a budget laptop, or has come across any deals i would be very grateful of any advice or suggestions.

My tuppence worth would be to consider Lenovo business grade laptops, as they are easy to upgrade, repair and second hand/refurbished units still go for pretty decent prices - here's a link regarding a reply I made to a very similar advice thread to yours; if you went down that route you would have money left over for RAM & internal/external storage upgrades (i.e. SSD, HDD via 2nd HDD Caddy, etc).

Of course this is all down to whether you need a smaller laptop (i.e. 11.6"+), a medium size (14"+) or a larger desktop replacement laptop (15.6"+)...either if you can give myself and the other HUKD members an idea I'm sure we'll be able to point you in the right direction.

£300 ought to get you a half decent Asus or Toshiba (e.g an i3) - their reliability is pretty good according to warranty stats, so I'd start there

Hey

Thanks for sutch a detailed response. Ideally I would like a 15.6" laptop, however if the spec was significantly better I wouldn't be opposed to a smaller screen.

Pc world should be able to set you up with an acceptable machine for that budget but youll be stuck with a windows comp for that price. You could pick up a decent spec mac pro or air 3/4 yr old for that money if ur willing to go the second hand route

Have a look into the Lenovo x240. CEX do 2 years warranty. Stick in an SSD and 8GB RAM. Will run what you want and more smoothly :)
