My current laptop's backlight is dodgy, so it's going back under warranty and im getting a refund.
I've got ~£300-£400 to spend, but would spend a little more if it was worth it.
8+ hour battery,
Screen between 11.6-14" (min res 1366*768),
Dual core CPU (needs to be at least as fast as an SU9400)
I dont care about:
The OS (got Windows 7 Ultimate already),
The RAM (got 8GB DDR3 spare),
The HDD (got a 500GB HDD spare).
I would also like HDMI, but thats not that important, and a dedicated GPU would be nice, but not a dealbreaker.
My existing laptop is an Acer 8371 (spec here - but mines the 320GB version - http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/Open_Box_-_Acer_TravelMate_Timeline_8371_1068641.html)
The best I've found so far is this - http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/acer-aspire-4820t-refurbished-laptop-07604418-pdt.html
- Acer 4820T refurb, i3 & 8 hours battery life for £349.99 - but 14" is a little large and after having a play it felt very cheap, so i'd like to see if you can get something better for me...
