Hi

Sorry for posting another question about this - but I'd be grateful on any advice on which laptop I can purchase to take to work with me.

I mainly need it for word, PowerPoint, excel and the Internet! (and one or two work related small software - nothing too heavy)

Storage is not an issue as I will have a memory stick/hard drive, and it doesn't have to have windows 10.

The only thing I don't want is a small screen.

Is it better to get a second hand one for about £100/£150? Or is it better to buy a new one? I currently have a very old laptop which I use like a desktop, so don't want to spend too much money on this.

Thanks again for any help/advice and pointing me in the right direction.

ps: I was considering a chrome book but not sure whether I can use office on that?

That is storage, memory (RAM) is how much it can work on at once.

If you use it like a desktop then why not buy a desktop? Bigger screen, better peripherals.

Generally you're looking at around £300-400 for a reasonable new laptop, maybe up to £500 if you type a lot and want one with a great keyboard.

If you can only afford £150-200 then I'd definitely be looking second hand rather than new, the new ones at that price are cut down beyond the point of sense.

Not the full version of Office, there are the much simplified online/app versions.

Thanks for clarifying that - I'm not too concerned about the memory or storage.

I need one to take into work with me which is why I'm looking for one.

Thanks for the advice - will start looking on ebay!!
