My old laptop is ready for retiring and I need a new one

its mainly for work

quotes

letters

spreadsheets for my invoices

emails

Amtech ( I know!) FASTEST

t'internet

anybody got any recommendations of what to get and what to avoid 'like an 80s TV personality!'?

 

budget is as little as possible since I ain't worked for 3 months!

 

are DELL any good?

old one is a Sony VAIO which has been great but it's about 10 years old and Windows7

Take a look at curry’s, they have buy now, pay in 6 month deals

 

personally I would avoid dell ....

 

and you do need to decide on a budget too 

 

minimum 8gb ram

intel 5

 

would be my lowest spec

 

like this

I am the forum cheapskate.  Linux on a donated old laptop.  Works plenty faster than any windoze machine I have ever had.

I recently had the same dilemma, I ended up with a Lenovo with Ryzen 3 processor and 256gb SSD HD and 8gb RAM with a 15.6" display. My budget was sub £400 and this one came in at £370 from Box. Came with windows 10 too. Been using it a week or 2 and seems pretty good so far.
