Hi all. So my current laptop has quite a few issues that need repairing and the cost of the parts feels like it may be a good time to upgrade to something more modern.
Can anyone recommend an upgrade from this?
Current specs: Dell inspiron 17r (n7110) intel i5-2410m 2.3ghz (2.7ghz with turboboost off the top of my head), 6gig ram DDR3L-1600, 256gb ssd, GeForce gt 525m graphics card (plus integrated) windows 10.
Looking for at least 15" screen (17" would be a bonus). Not massively into gaming anymore but I do some video encoding and photo editing. Want to get something that would justify an upgrade. Used to be quite computer savvy about 10 years ago but have kinda been lost since the i3,i5 etc series as it seems difficult to quickly compare newer models with old ones. E.g. It was easier to compare pentiums for instance.
Budget is £300-£500 but the cheaper the better.
Thanks in advance.
