Hi everyone! I've been looking around for the best value core i7 laptop I can find for the past week or so and as of yet haven't found anything that I've thought was an amazing deal.
The laptop will mostly be used as a desktop-replacement work laptop.. The reason for needing a powerful processor is that it will be used for a lot of compiling and running code, so the faster the processor the better. 2 display outputs (HDMI + VGA?) would also be a big plus as it will probably spent most of it's time plugged into external monitors...
So far the best options seem to be:
HP Pavilion DV6-3180EA at Amazon for £740http://www.amazon.co.uk/Pavilion-DV6-3180EA-Notebook-Bluetooth-Fingerprint/dp/B00440D928
(Have seen it for £670 elsewhere but would prefer to stick to a retailer I've heard of)
Acer Aspire 5750G at Save On Laptops for £684:http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/Acer_Aspire_5750G_1053012.html
Sony VAIO VPCF13M8E/B also at Save on Laptops for £800http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/Sony_VAIO_VPCF13M8EB_1042946.html
All seem like good options but don't seem like amazingly hot deals. Has anybody used these laptops / suggest whether these are in fact good deals / advise on which one of the 3 they'd go for?
Thanks in advance!
