Hi all,

I'm looking to purchase a laptop for university, and am struggling to find anything decent for a good price. Does anybody have any recommendations?

I have a few requirements, as listed below:

  • ■ 1080p display, preferrably 15" or higher
    ■ SSD for a boot drive and HDD for mass storage as standard (Important)
    ■ Decent keyboard and trackpad
    ■ Ethernet port
    ■ Priced around £700
I have no real preference as to the CPU or dedicated graphics, although this would be a nice bonus. My intention is to use it every day for general work purposes.

I appreciate any help/suggestions you may have. Many thanks.

then get a fast external for all your data, and use OneDrive or DropBox or GoogleDrive to store ALL data in cloud as well as the external.

I got my kid the really cheapo 300 dollar model and upgraded to 8GB and an 500GB Evo 850 Pro I had lying around. it's a real workhorse
