HELP: Whats a good quality Thin 13.3" laptop?

Hoping some of you people here can help me out, I'm looking to buy a 13.3" laptop, it needs to have dedicated graphics, have an i3 processor and be slim.

Anyone point me to something that fits the requirements?

my son-in-law is very pleased with this one..

Seems nicely made and very responsive.

i have a samsung Q330,Great machine but no dedicated graphics so no good for you.

not many 13.3 laptops with graphics cards unless you go down the mac route which gets expensive.

I've been looking at a Toshiba R630 saveonlaptops.co.uk/Tos…tml it is £500 at Save-on-laptops but our local PC World have it on clearance at £450.

I can't decide between that one and the Q330.

I'd get the Samsung, I have a R530 i3 and the built quality is excellent and the fan is quiet - as was my NC10.

But both don't have dedicated graphics!

The ASUS looks nice.

My Q330 was a special £399 when i bought mine but that Tosh looks very good for £450.

i agree its a tricky one.






Acer 3820TG, ignore the brand name, the build quality is actually very good.

No dedicated graphics.

The problem I'm having is that I've bought a DV3-4100sa and although the spec is good, it's much heavier and bulkier than my HP 311c - more than I expected given as it's 13.3". My work Dell E4300 is a much thinner and I like it, but again NO dedicated graphics!

Anyone else have some recommendations.

It has a Radeon HD 5470, is that not dedicated enough? It switches between that card and the intel HD one when not gaming.

I am looking for similar and have only found the 14in Q430 on here for £390.
Dell outlet might have some 13.3in.

Really? I didn't see it in the specs. Can you point me to somewhere I can buy it. I know you said the build quality is good - but I've had an acer and it wasn't a pleasant experience.

Oh I like the look of the Q430 - but not sure I'd be able to sell my DV3 and be able to buy a Q430! Linky please.

Its on here somewhere with a few posts and at saveonlaptops to buy with a code for £390.
