New laptop

I need a new laptop, 1 for under 300 pound. Any recommendations?

I was looking at this 1, great specs for 300 pound.

Pretty shit processor, not sure what prices are like where you are, but see if you can get an Intel i3 in that price range, even if it has less RAM or a lower hard drive capacity.

Based on Zico's recommendation, here is a list of i3 laptops. The difference between some models and the one posted above are 20-30 pounds, which is marginal! There is even a Lenovo model that is cheaper (319).

My weekly rant!

27th May 1965: Over 16,000 days.

"For a moment there I returned to my youth, the early youth, when all nice illusions were gathered together. Then life came and, like a strong wind, blew them away, one by one. What we call happiness is sometimes the accordance between our life and circumstances, our biography and history, our personal aspirations and historical currents. If I look at things that way, I can say: I was born too early to be happy. But birth is one of the many things we do not get to choose. It is part of our destiny."

Thanks guys. Been advised to wait until January because shops will offer discounts after Christmas and people will want to sell unwanted presents.
