    4gb of ram is enough for most things, excluding high end usage.
    if its those types of things, it would be thousands and thousands to be honest.

    the features are good. I see it as an a possibility. Are there any other options preferably with better aesthetics. One that is not all black?

    It's quite hard to be fair, as some of the makes aren't very reliable at Lenovo, there is a bronze Lenovo but it's much more expensive

    Cos their reliability is well known, someone posted something a while ago, where they came on top along with Toshiba I think.
    Asus came a notch down along, with Samsung being similar.....Acer was right at the bottom.

    Lenovo = big no-no for me. I just changed my laptop last week: how about this

    For the extra £50, you get a more reliable make and a better processor.

    EDIT: The same laptop is on the website you're on for £373 - http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/Samsu...A_1192056.html

    Lenovo is currently the most reliable laptop in the market. It's probably a bad experience.

    Nor is that Samsung the same model at all hence the lower price, outdated processor.

    They are pretty much same apart from model name, colour and 2gb of ram, but would suggest it as you'll save a few quid and should definitely be more reliable. Battery life on all are good.
