Oh , and can we get any special deals from companies as it is needed for uni work? Thanks all...
It's not the latest, but this laptop is within your budget - currys.co.uk/gbu…tml, and with care should last a while.

Yes this looks ideal and the last one was the same make , and lasted 7 years. I guess the processor is the most important thing?

Correct. I'd aim for i5 or Ryzen 5 for longevity. 8GB RAM minimum I'd say.

Yes , this does look the part and with a free stuff! Lol
And check with the Uni - many will include Office if they use Office 365 as their email provider.
Also check the Unidays website for discounts on tech - think HP have around 15% off but shop around as they don’t always offer the best deals...
