My advice dont spend this much on a laptop I did the same spent £900 on one last year.

They decrease in value so much I am having trouble trying to get rid of mine for £450 just over 12 months after I bought it.

Im not sure if you want it for gaming but there is no such thing as a gaming laptop in a years time it wont be good enough to run news games to see in their full glory.

If I was you I would spend like £400 on a laptop you can get lots of dual cores 2gb ram which are good for just browsing and stuff. Then either save the money left over or if you want buy use the other £300 for that tesco quad core and just ugrade the psu and grahics card.

What would be the purpose of this laptop and would you be using it on the go a lot? If not then I would either buy a semi decent laptop and desktop or you get pc specialists to build you a sweet pc with £700-800.

I cannot say how much I regret spending so much on a laptop what you buy your stuck with cant upgrade anything other than the RAM.

I'd recommend one of ]these notebooks then.

Apple macs these days are just PCs, they switched over to using the same components several years ago. OS X, the operating system apple includes with their PCs, is windows remixed in terms of interface. It's much the same with windows with 90% of the interface being the same, and most of the differences are small things like the close button for a window being on the top left rather than the top-right. It does do some things well that windows doesn't, but it also shares many of the problems and has annoyances of it's own.

If you fancy trying it and like Apple's current plain hardware designs then go ahead, as it's a PC you can always buy a copy of windows and install that if you'd rather have that over OS X.

For other alternatives the Lenovo Thinkpads are well thought of, as are some of the sony viaos and the HP/Toshiba/Dell laptops and similar should be good value for money.

p.s. If your current laptop is crashing 'all the time' then it's probably broken

My Advice...buy a Mac and forget about windows entirely....15 years on Macs..never had any problems...even ones that were used for 7+years. MAC OSX is not windows re-formatted..its what windows is aiming to be
If it is for gaming...then true..Mac isnt your best choice...but if its for professional use its a steal!!
Which always have Macs as best buys and even at the high price they are value for money as they come with some fine software packages in the price.

You've been exceeding lucky then, both my parents iMac and my sister's macbook have had problems and they're the first macs the family has had. I'm sticking to windows myself for now.

Hardware and software problems, I wouldn't call user confusion a problem. (well, maybe a design problem)

I mean things like the mighty mouse not tracking properly, and it's scroll wheel 'bouncing' in certain applications or the wifi-connection intermittantly prompting for a password.
