    Hi

    I am looking to buy a new laptop for university but I'm really struggling to find one that meets my needs. I'm looking for one that
    • Is lightweight
    • Has a webcam intergrated
    • Has a CD/DVD drive but is still quite thin
    • Is value for money
    • Has a good battery life
    • Possibly (I don't know if you can get these) comes with word software and all the other basic stuff like mozilla
    • Is about £200-£400
    • hasn't got a massive screen, but not too small
    • Is reliable


    Also I'm hoping to get an ipad so I just need a laptop for basic studenty things like essays and movies and stuff


    Thanks sooo much for your help, I'm not much good at buying stuff like this!!
