    Im thinking of getting a new laptop as my current one is too bulky and freezes all the time.
    I would prefer one which is sleek, light with a good battery life. Budget is around £ 600 and I wont mind spending more if it's worth it.

    I'll be off to uni for my postgrad in sept and will be travelling from surrey to london almost everyday. Thus a lightweight laptop is my top priority.

    Are asus, acer and hp laptops good? Im leaning towards one of these brands.

    Any recommendations ( I dont like dell laptops)

    MacBook - best price performance ratio

    The Acer Aspire models are also very good budget laptops. For gaming. Imsorry

    I would also recommend looking on amazon warehouse deals.
    Thats were all the stuff lands that gets sent back in the 30day warranty time, theres really good deals sometimes.
