A colleague has asked me to look for a laptop for her and wants something of fairly decent quality. She has said that she'd prefer something with a higher resolution than the ones we have in work (WXGA 1366x768). Having seen Samsung and Asus i3 machines for around £350 I assumed I'd be able to find a reasonable i3 powered machine with WXGA+ or even better for about £500 but it appears to be a trickier task than I thought. I could have lost my shopping Mojo or is it just that they're not so easy to find?
Can anybody recommend anything or should I just keep looking, or tell her to go for lower res or bigger screen?
Any thoughts will be much appreciated. Oh yes, just to add a bit more to the challenge she'd like it to look "nice", or at least "not black"
