I'm looking to buy a laptop between £200 - £300 that I want to use for general tasks like surfing the net, office applications, storing photos but would also like to be able to play Football Manager. Want it to last a good few years to get a decent return on my investment.
I know my budget is quite broad but if a £200 laptop will do the job then I don't want to spend £300, having said that I would stretch to £320 for the right laptop.
I don't want it to be laggy or slow. I have read up a bit and I'm probably looking at an i3 or i5 processor.
Can anybody recommend a decent laptop? Would I be better going for a refurbished laptop to get more bang for my buck. I'm happy to buy refurbished, I've had a look at argos ebay, are any of these any good?http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Argos-Outlet?category=177&categoryName=PC%20Laptops%20%26amp%3B%20Netbooks
