i3 or i5 laptop for £500 or under

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have been looking for a laptop for university work such as programming and web browsing/word processing.

I just need a basic laptop really for this.

I have been looking at the dell inspiron 15R with the i3-370M and 3gb ddr3 1333mhz ram. the price of that is £429 delivered.

is there any laptops better than this for a similar price or up to £500 ish (dont matter if its a lil over)

Just want everyones opinion really.

Thanks guys

Medion Akoya P6624

£500 for an i5 and mid range mobile GPU GT 425M

I know you didn't specify for a gaming laptop but you'll be able to game on low-med details with this spec on most new titles

You can try ringing your nearest sainsburys and see if they have any in stock. They have some in a store local to me, although I didn't confirm the price was the same as the online price so you'll have to double check.

EDIT: Went to another store which also still has stock and yes the price instore is £499.99 as on web offer.
