EXPIRED

pls reccommend laptop £400

A friend of mines looking for a new laptop, not netbook.

she wants it to be 'good looking, slick and red' lol but will sacrifice the looks for better specs, she will only be using it for browsing Internet, word processing, running some text to speech software and burning cd's.

I've seen the HP with i3 processor for £399 at pc world which has pretty good specs

and seen the samsung r530 which meets her criteria of appearance at £399.

I personally would go with an i3 processor and ddr3 ram, it will have better resale value in a few years (if it lasts)

she wanted to spend £300 but i bought her budget upto £400 so she can get something decent with a known reliable brand name.so may be able to push her a £100 more if a laptop has specs and appearance.

ps she would prefer new but will consider refurbished and used.

Hi, dont know if it will be of any interest to you but i have a brand new boxed and sealed dell 1750 on a thread on here. £350.

Oh btw if the HP your refering to is the brown looking one then i had that for about a day. its painfully slow, the touch pad is nasty and it has a weird patterned casing which i hated, its not worth bothering with. HP and other manufacturers make these laptops, PC world and the like advertise them at £499 (which its not worth) and then reduce the price (to £399) and advertise the hell out of it (and its still not worth it!)

Ive worked for them and still know people who do, its what they do!

i seen your listing and sounds good, i might be coming up birmingham, i will message you if laptop is still available but any chance of you lowering the price a little bit?

Errm i dont think im going to move on £350 tbh mate as that is a great price. Its £530 on PC World and this is the same condition as buying direct from them! Box is sealed and still over 11 months warrenty left.

if you want a custom colour lid, then dell is the best choice plus their prices are not bad, you can extend your warranty if you want to after a year.

I removed them as you shouldn't be extending your fs/ft thread on here, surely you couldn't have forgot what you entered moments ago ?

You can deal with the issues on your return.
