The first thing I would say is “What are you going to use it for?”

The Best Laptop for Surfing the Web

If you’re only going to use it for surfing the web, writing the occasional email, and chatting on Facebook, then you don’t need to spend a fortune.  However, I would recommend not buying the cheapest eMMC (embedded Multi-Media Controller) netbooks.  The reason for this is the storage space is often really tiny.  They work great when you first get them, but once you’ve installed a few apps, and Windows has updated a few time, you’ll soon find that the storage is full.  So, having said that, what do I recommend?  If you’re looking for a laptop for surfing the web, emails, and Social Media, then I would buy a basic laptop that has a Hard drive with over 500GB of storage (Or more)   You certainly do not need to spend a fortune, any of the laptops listed in the section below will do the job.  Click on the image for more details or to buy …

The Best Laptop for Gaming

If you’re looking to buy a gaming laptop then the sky’s the limit.  You want the best graphics, the fastest processor speed, and the most RAM (memory) that you can afford.  Unlike laptops for surfing the web, or for office applications, gaming laptops need to keep up with the technology that’s being incorporated in to the latest games.  What might have been an OK gaming laptop two years ago, will probably struggle to even load the latest releases.  For that reason go for the best you can afford.  If you’re into gaming then you will save yourself a bit of money, as the technology will keep up to date for a few years.  Don’t be tempted by some of the High Street retailers that are selling so called ‘Gaming Laptops’ for less than £300.  You will be hard pushed to play any of the latest games on them.  You’re going to want MASSIVE memory, SUPER FAST graphics, and SIZZLING performance, so take a look at the gaming laptops featured below.  Click on the image for more details or to spoil yourself….
