Evening all, I'm in the market for a new laptop. I've currently got a Compaq Presario CQ60, but it's struggling big time. It only cost £320 so I suppose you get what you pay for. Now I want something that's a lot nippier but not necessarily high end, and preferably with a blu-ray drive and a 17" screen. My budget is £650 ex VAT, but I could be tempted to stretch a bit further if my alcohol intake remains moderate to high. One of the best I can find so far is this; Samsung R780 17.3 inch Notebook (Intel Core i5-480M Processor, 2.66GHz, 6GB RAM, 640GB HD, Blu-ray/DVDRW, WLAN, BT, Webcam, Windows 7 Home Premium) - Red: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories Brand: Samsung Mfr Part Number: NP-R780-JT4BUK RAM Size: 6 GB Processor Brand: Intel Processor Speed: 2.66 GHz Processor Type: Intel Core i5 Hard Drive Size: 640 GB Hard Disk Rotational Speed: 5400 rpm Computer Memory Type: DDR3 SDRAM Operating System: Windows 7 Edition Home Premium Graphics Card Description: ATI HD5470 Graphics Card Ram Size: 1 GB Graphics RAM Type: DDR3 SDRAM Screen Size: 17.3 inches Display Technology: LED Light Source Type: LED Speaker Output Channel Quantity: 2 Spearkers Maximum Output Power: 2 watts This one seems to tick all the boxes for me, but if I can get something cheaper/better/faster then obviously I will. If anyone comes across a better deal feel free to stick a link below.
