Advice required - Laptops
I'm in the market for a new laptop
With my lack of knowledge matched by lack of patience with spotty yoots in Currys, the obvious route is to consult the Great Oracle that is WHO
So any recommendations chaps?
It will be used for usual home style stuff, not work, the odd game if my lad uses it and I will want to plug it into the tv periodically to use that as a monitor
All rather straightforward and expect to spend around £1000 I suppose
Oh and not a Mac, it's taken me this long to turn on a Windows device so I'm not heading down that path .....
Thanks in advance

Not sure I agree with mex - I didn’t find it particularly intuitive when I got my MacBook Pro….

…that said, that was 12 years ago. I just had a new hard drive and battery put in for £200 and it’s as good as the day I brought it. Fantastic laptops.

Not want you asked for, but you really wouldn't have much trouble changing from windows to Mac. It's much much easier to learn to use a Mac than windows. Mac's are kind of obvious, you try want you think is needed and usually it works.

Very true. Bought a Mac Air for 750 quid in 2013. Still going strong (and fast) today. Just does what you want it to do without handing out any hassles or frustration.

A Mac Air for about a grand is the best money you can spend. If you get a Windows for that price you'll find that you will spend another grand to replace it many years before you would have if you bought the Mac.

If you want to play games you will need a i5 CPU, a decent graphics card, 16gb ram and 1tb disk.
This will give you the answer

Can you split the requirements?

Probably get a decent desktop & monitor for the lad at 5-600 sovs and yourself a basic laptop for what is left over.

Its a Microsoft machine (model 1943 I think). Good size SSD (120Gb) and memory and an i5 processor. Works well for what I use it for. Cost around £500 in john Lewis

Whats this Surface machine Sock?

Re: Advice required - Laptops
As Trundle said, its all dependent on what games your son plays. A gaming spec laptop will set you back something like 2-3k for a lot of stuff teenagers play now.

if its just basic stuff and a decent laptop for everyday use, the Surface one I just bought is about £500 and is excellent. Asus make higher spec ones, but not sure you need it.

If high end graphics aren't needed, then you could get away with spending probably half of that and it'll easily be enough for what you want to do.
