Default What Laptop To Get?

no idea about computers or laptops, my old laptop has just died.

Last two laptops have been acer, nothing too glash just one to do the job.

Needs to have a decent amount of memory, say 200gb roughly. Last laptop was 4gb of ram, so want that or more.

All it will be used for is music and photos. Needs to be able to burn CDs so thats notebooks out the window. Like said will just have i tunes on and then photo editting programs.

Havent really got a clue what im looking at. Just had a quick browse, dont really want to spend more than 400. Will not be used for gaming or anything like that.

Any links to what could be suited? I did look but the talk of all different windows and what core to get means nothing to me.

I'd be looking at that, Plenty of RAM, good loads of HD space, i5 processor.. Should run everything you need plenty fast enough, and be capable of lasing a good few years too!

White text aside, it does look shit.

Spec is pretty good though.

Seems like a good laptop for the price

I would have bought it at that price and ASUS is one of the biggest company in the game so will likely be well made,

When I'm building PC's for people I always tend to opt for the ASUS brand Motherboard.
