I would appreciate any assitance possible pls. (Not specifically looking for someone to recommend a product just at this stage, just whether I have my facts correct and whether my price range is plausible).
I am after a new laptop and I would say my top 3 requirements are:
2) Dedicated graphics card
3) Good battery life.
Essentially, after a few years with a DTR i would like a relatively quite machine as opposed to my DTR which sounded like it was about to take off!, and I do not want to compromise on stuttering/buffering videos etc. I dont play many games (i.e. just football manager occassionally) but I want it to be pain-free.
I was reading that core i3s are better than the AMD Athlon IIs, but all i3s have integrated graphics cards....Does this mean i need a core i5? I dont really want to spend more than £600.
Also, I was only looking at Vaios but should I broaden my horizons to other manufactures?
