    Hey guys and girls,

    I really don't know what to buy, if i don't find some help ill probably just end up buying it from dell.co.uk which probably overcharge.

    I am looking to buy a laptop in the £400-600 including VAT ($615-920) range. Ill mainly be using it to just do work or playing games and maybe some video editing.

    Any help is much appreciated and also i live in the UK (England, London).

    Thanks

    I wouldnt recommend a laptop for gaming purposes because of overheating issues, unless you consider alienware. A new one will be way over your budget but its always possible to find good used deals on egay and cl.

    For work and editing, anything with dual core cpu and 4-6 gb ram should do the job and that is definitely within your price range.
