Hi I've asked hubby to get me a laptop for my xmas.

He now wants me to state which one I really want, so as I know nothing about laptops here's my requirements and if anyone could help it would be really appriciated.

The moment I have a dell x300 but really old now (had it for 6yrs)


would like 12 to 13" screen
It must have dvd drive
must have good memory
fairly large hard drive- for my music.

colour top would be nice.

Thanks, all help would be greatly received.

Hi Elaine, not sure there is a lot of choice in the 12/13" screen size.
If you went to 15/16" inches much more choice. Remember that a 15" display is measured from corner to corner, a wide screen laptop will be the same hight as a 12/13" one, but wider.
I would try to get into Curry's/Dixons, etc. and have a look and a play on them, feel the Mouse pad, look closly at the screen and finish, etc.
As for spec, try and get a dual core processor of some type, 2 or 3 or 4 Gigabyte (Gb) of memory, at least a 250Gb hard disk and Windows 7.
An online place I like is the Argos outlet on ebay.
They mostly say Refurbished, but the 3 items I have bought have been as good as new.
Link to the latest Laptop I have bought is below, but you can also look around the eBay Argos "Shop".
Another good thing is link the from the auctions to reviews left by people who have bought the same item from argos direct.
Good luck. You might need it, the choice is very wide.
