Hi All

Hoping some of you may be able to help and advise me in choosing my next laptop to buy. I'm not blessed with a great deal of choice from the supplier I will be getting it from, with the budget I can afford, so its important to make the right choice. My needs are pretty basic, as long as it can browse the internet quickly, and can stream video well (most important), then I'll be happy. I've narrowed down my selection to the following.

1: Lenovo 100-15IBD, Intel Core i3-5005U (2GHz), 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, Windows 10.
2: HP 255, AMD Quad Core A6-6310 (1.8GHz), 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, Windows 10.
3: Lenovo IdeaPad 100, Intel Celeron N2840 (2.5GHz), 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, Windows 10.

Not a great choice I know, but as I said I have limited options. If any of you guys have any opinions on which one I should get, I would be grateful to hear them.

Look forward to hearing your views on this, and many thanks in advance!

The first option has a newer CPU with overall more Cache than both, will last you longer and is more power effecient. It also has hyperthreading so it got 4 threads. The second option is not bad either because it's a quadcore but it might get some heat issues after some time and not last as long as option one, and the 3rd option is an Intel Celeron, It only has 2 cores without hyperthreading.

Here's also a solid option.

I myself would go with option 1 of any of those 3 options, however right now my internet is really slow so I can't really look into other options but if it's between those 3, the first one.

Wow, that a seriously speedy reply, cheers. Out of interest, what was the factor that made you decide to choose option 1 out of the 3?

Thats awesome info, not that I understand what all that means, but has helped make my choice easier. Are you saying that option 1 would be the best choice for my needs? I'm particularly interested in having a machine that can cope with video streaming.

Option one would be better for everything in the long run.
