Hi everyone

Got a main laptop i'm happy with however i'm looking for a small lightweight (11-13 inches) laptop to use on commutes, I will be mainly using office and just general web browsing and music listening.
Can any of you recommend me any good laptops sub £250?

Thanks

Greetings, Dom:

Take a look at this Acer:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Acer-TravelMate-B116-M-P5LW-1-6GHz-768pixels/dp/B0188Y1PL2/ref=sr_1_30?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1479250997&sr=1-30

This is (almost) a full laptop squeezed into an 11.6" frame with matching specs. Most other ultrabooks, or large tablets, rely on eMMC storage that's usually capped at 32GBs. Here you get 500GBs, admittedly in a mechanical setup and most likely @ 5400rpm, but at least you don't have to do storage management every time you download an app.

The CPU and graphics specs are... (ahem) modest and will just about meet your requirements. But with Windows 10 Home you do get full PC functionality and only 1.2 kg to carry around.

At £242.32, this looks like a bargain to me.

Cheers,
GreyCatz.
