Having looked at the mainstream websites (currys, john lewis, argos etc) I've not found something I'm happy with. This Laptop is for my mum, she won't buy major electrical devices from an online retailer like amazon so don't offer anything from there. The two I've found are (exactly default, nothing customized or changed):
Latitude 3330 - £349.00 (offer):
- 3rd gen i3-3217U 1.80, 3MB Dual Core
- 500GB Solid State Hybrid Drive with 8GB Flash
- Intel HD Graphics 4000
- 4GB Ram
ThinkPad Edge E545 - £329.99:
- AMD A8-5550M Accelerated Processor (2.1Ghz to 3.1GHz, 4MB Cache, 1600MHz with Raedon HD 8550G Graphics)
- 500GB Hard Disk Drive
- 4GB RAM
What she needs is something well built, something with solid performance, decent battery life and iPlayer/ Skype use. Her max budget is £350. If you find anything anywhere else, let me know
I'm gearing towards the dell one but I am worried about the build quality which is something I'd prefer over having something slightly better which she may not need.
Also, what is a hybrid drive?
