Laptop - Value for Money between £200-£300

Found 10th Dec 2014
I'm looking to buy a laptop between £200 - £300 that I want to use for general tasks like surfing the net, office applications, storing photos but would also like to be able to play Football Manager. Want it to last a good few years to get a decent return on my investment.

I know my budget is quite broad but if a £200 laptop will do the job then I don't want to spend £300, having said that I would stretch to £320 for the right laptop.

I don't want it to be laggy or slow. I have read up a bit and I'm probably looking at an i3 or i5 processor.

Can anybody recommend a decent laptop? Would I be better going for a refurbished laptop to get more bang for my buck. I'm happy to buy refurbished, I've had a look at argos ebay, are any of these any good?

Does the above look good based on the processor / price? Thanks

That's an ok price for a refurbished i5 laptop.

If you want a brand new one, there's a Lenovo i3 for £270 @ currys.

I got a Dell Inspiron 15 3000 for £269ish with their 12% off code the other week. Probably not as massively specced for the money as others but I trust the brand to be honest.
