Need a laptop for work as a teacher...

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I'm a teacher and need a laptop that is suitable for me but I haven't got a clue when it comes to laptops.

    I'm not looking for a fancy laptop, and I'm not interested in spending money on features I will not use.

    I want a laptop that will get the job done, i.e using Microsoft office, the internet, checking emails, playing videos, skype calling etc without being slow.

    I want it to have these features:
    1080p display
    Long battery life
    a dvd/cd drive

    Basically, things a teacher would do while at school.

    budget is £500/600

    1080p display will inflate the price. Are you flexible about that?


    Only 2GB RAM? That's a gaming laptop, and sacrifices have been made in the wrong areas to account for a dedicated video card, which OP doesn't need.

    I suggest this laptop instead, although if a 1080p screen isn't a necessity, even something like this will do just fine.
