Question Good Laptop for £300

Hi guys
I've been looking around for a cheep laptop that is fairly decent and I've come back with a couple of Asus laptops that are not overly impressive on Amazon and that's about it does anyone have any links to any good deals at the moment i'm also thinking about replacing the HDD with an SSD but ill add that on top of the £300 budget.

Thanks for any help!

Oh noes, no Acer

What about the Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series?
http://www.dell.com/uk/p/inspiron-15...h&isredir=true

300 quid gets you a 15" 768p screen with a Haswell i3, HD4400 graphics, 4GB RAM and a 500GB HDD. Think they were introduced like a month ago.

I've had 1 bad acer and 1 really good acer to the fact its still going years later which was given to a family member for school work.

But thats not a bad deal on the Dell.

I'm not sure how strict the budget is but HP have a decent performer for £330.

Of course, just disregard if too much over budget.

Good luck on your search!

Thanks for the help guys, fairly lenient on the budget £30 either way sort of thing and I like the look of the HP pavilion, but I also like the touch screen of the dell!
