Im looking to buy a new laptop but dont really know what I am looking for. I know about graphics, ram and hd (in terms of size), other than that iv no idea. I've seen people saying about i3, i5 etc, for processors but some of the ones i look at dont mention 'i' anything, like amd, pentium dual core, core 2 duo, its very confusing. I also have no idea what an optical drive means. Just wondered if someone could make things a little clearer for me, Im only looking to spend £350 max really, so im not looking for top of the range specs, but I just want2 know what is good or what I should avoid.
I have looked on google but it still leaves me confused
