    Laptop Help - Insurance Payout

    Right, the insurance company just got back in touch and there replacing my philips x57 with a Sony VGN-NS20Z/S

    or they said i can choose something to the value of £599.99 if this doesnt meet my needs.

    so is this the best way to spend £600?
    i dont really know what im after as i wasnt expecting to be needing to get my old one replaced....

    ideally though i would like HDMI out (well it would be a bonus, but not a necessity)
    cost less than £600 (doesnt mean must be as close to as poss, as im sure i can find something else to buy)

    and heres the hard part - must be at comets....


    please please i hope someone can help me! i know alot about computers, but when its restricted to one site i wanna make sure im gettin the most bang for me buck like!

    rep will be left to all!!

    cheers

    These are VERY nice

    The only thing it doesn't have is Blu-ray playback, but a dedicated 1GB for graphics is damned impressive.

    This one is good, comes with HDMI output too: comet.co.uk/sho…ion

    cheers guys i was looking at both of them actually . would you say there better than the sony??

    which is the best option out of them two??

    are acers any good? i know ya hear horror stories for manufacturers, but i dont want it conkin out in forseable future.lolz

    repped btw!

    Both the Acer laptops posted are way better than the Sony, the Sony only has a Dual Core processor and does not include HDMI output. Both Acers have Core 2 Duo processors and includes the HDMI output that you want.

    This one comet.co.uk/sho…ion is slightly better, it has better battery life, faster processor bus and bigger HD.

    ah i didnt realise that, the man on the phone said it was c2d (same as old one) but was going on and on about it not having bluetooth and would tht be a problem (my old one did) said that if he keeps looking then if he saw one with bt, he would only give me the value of tht, (liekly to be less) or i can have that amount, so i came straight on here to ask for help b4 i even really looked myself.

    usually liek to research stuff religiously., but when limited to one company its a bit hard...lol

    cheers for the help.... would u say the one u posted is work the extra £50ish....

    oh, and a 16" screen, arnt then normally 15.4" - does that mean they have funny ratios etc?

    Nope, don't worry about screen sizes as the pixels will compensate either way (they may not be completely square for instance.

    I would definitely take the laptop that Spriggan linked :thumbsup:
