Looks like I'm going to need to get a couple of new laptops.
First off, number two son needs something for himself as he heads towards GCSE options. In reality, he will probably use it for the interweb (particularly social media) and MS Office. Budget is Â£420 max and, whilst this is going to be minimal, some gaming ability would probably be good.
Secondly, SWMBO needs a replacement laptop, her current Samsung 1700 Centrino (!) is near death. It is mainly used for business so needs to be used for MS Office, interweb, Dreamweaver, Photoshop. It needs to be more of a portable size than a desktop replacement and needs excellent battery life. She was thinking tablet since she spends a certain amount of time out at clients but I think a traditional laptop would be more sensible. Not really though about budget for this but perhaps around Â£400 again.
I'm just starting to look - probably shell out in November - but any thoughts greatly appreciated!
