    15" Laptop £300 - £400

    Hi All,
    I'm looking for a laptop around £300 - £400 and around 15". Unfortunately I don't really know what's good and what isn't, so could do with some sound advice. Thanks to frogman for providing the questions from another thread:

    What do you want to do with the notebook? Email/Internet Browsing or specific applications?
    Mostly will be used for Web browsing, office tasks and some games so would like a dedicated graphics card if possible. 200gb is more than enough for hd size.

    How important is portability? Will you carry it around and use it a lot on battery power?
    Not very important, basic battery will do fine.

    How important are advanced features such as Blu-ray, HDMI, etc.?
    not at all, dvd-rw is the most advanced I'll need.

    PC/Windows or Mac? Any particular brands? Any brands you would NOT want?
    PC, windows 7 ideally, any brand that is known to be relatively reliable.

    Are you happy to buy online or will it be retail? Are you paying? Can you reclaim VAT?
    Online or instore would be fine, mothers self employed so I will be able to reclaim VAT.


    Thank you all for looking!

    Well it meets all the ]system requirements for running WOW.

    ]This is a good deal from Comet for a reasonable spec that is just very slightly over your budget. Or ]this one from Ebuyer, and ]another one here. Ignore the negative Acer comments you might read on the forum, these newer models are very well built and the customer service from Acer is now very good.
