    Any Laptop Deals (HP/DELL)

    Are there any good current laptop deals on dell or hp laptops? Looking to make use of a student discount if possible unless cheaper elsewhere.

    Looking for a £500 (less if possible) deal preferably with SSD and fast RAM for ultra fast browsing multi tasking and word processing.

    Lots of choice in those criteria, do you have any other requirements to narrow it down and if not what are your priorities? Weight, battery life, outdoor usability, cost etc.

    £500 (or less) mark is decent for me I am prepared to go over by a few quid if necessary

    i5 or i7 (quad core would be nice)

    There was a decent envy deal on here a while ago, but i've missed it. I've seen the g250 deal but it's dual core i7 (which i hear is rubbish)

    This laptop won't be used for gaming or any GPU intensive tasks.

    Fast loading times and multi tasking, multiple tab browsing are a must.

    Thanks waves!

    They're aimed at a different markets.

    Laptops are all about picking the right compromise for you. The Quad Core chips are faster in applications that can use all four cores, but they're also more power hungry and hotter. That means bigger batteries and cooling systems, which means heavier, bulkier laptops that you have to recharge more often and cost more money. And potentially noisier and hotter ones too if the manufacturer decides that's a better compromise for a lower priced model.

    The dual core chips are by far the more popular choice. They offer the same single core performance in all those applications that don't use multiple cores well and are better for the portability aspects of a laptop.
