    I really don't know much about laptop tech but Toshiba builds laptops that tend to last quite long plus they're have solid built quality.
    Just make a note, processors don't really matter alot, focus on getting minimum 4-8 gigabytes of ram.
    4 gigs are enough for running basic applications and light usage.
    8 gigs if you multi task alot like photo editing or software programming. To get 8 gigs of ram, you will need to upgrade to 64 bit possessor, its a little bit upscale but cost a bit more.
    Good luck!

    Honestly for £400, the iPad is the best computer money can buy.

    Change the default components to:


    Processor (CPU)

    Intel® Core™ i3 Dual Core Processor i3-5010U (2.10GHz) 3MB Cache

    RAM

    8GB Kingston SODIMM DDR3 1600MHz

    (choose 4GB if you don't need 8GB)


    Memory - Hard Disk

    250GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD, SATA 6Gb/s (upto 540MB/sR | 520MB/sW)

    SSDs are a must on computers, especially laptops, as they are considerably faster and use less power than older slower mechanical hard drives. Do not get a HDD in a laptop unless you plan on removing the HDD, using it as an external HDD and installing an SSD in the laptop.


    Bluetooth & Wireless

    GIGABIT LAN & WIRELESS INTEL® AC-7260 HMC (867Mbps, 802.11AC) + BLUETOOTH


    Operating System

    NO OPERATING SYSTEM REQUIRED


    (cuts down the cost of the laptop as you are not buying an OS, which is good if you get Windows free from Microsoft Dreamspark at college /uni)

    Office Software

    NO OFFICE SOFTWARE


    Anti-Virus

    NO ANTI-VIRUS SOFTWARE

    Price :£427, though you're getting at more than what other manufacturers give you.
