Performance Laptop Needed

    I am looking to invest on a new laptop. I am willing to spend between £500 and £600.
    I am not looking for a gaming laptop but I do need speed, performance and capacity.
    The brands that I would prefer are sony and Toshiba. However I would consider others if good price and recommended. I would be very grateful if I can get some help to find some great deals.
