    This is a stupid idea imo. What's the point of annoying your dad? You're not a little kid.

    I think that is part of the problem with having credit cards. It is just too easy to spend on them!!

    I really do think you should try to control your spending more. Just stay away from credit cards and have a budget for everything

    It's a 6th gen pentium i7 processor
    That doesn't make sense man, the intel i7 is not the same as the Pentium, they are both available in the 6th Generation (Skylake) but still 2 totally different CPUs I hope your getting the i7 which would be the 6700k? That's a banging CPU but the Pentium G4500 is peanuts and available for like 50 quid online

    It's a 6th gen pentium i7 processor with 8 gig ram and a spare sodimm slot for me to put another 8 gig in. I will do this at some point in the near future, also 1tb hdd and 3 gig dedicated graphics memory i think.

    I still need to install avg and some tweaking programs and microsoft office, and copy some of my music across. Office alone could take four/six hours, but i let my daughter play around with it today. It will be good to have two powerful laptops in the house, this i7 which should be the dog's ***** and my i3, which has yet to slow down. Probably because it has 16 gig ram, and hasn't been abused by overclocking for gaming!

    Good luck ninjas!
    >AVG

    Are you like 5? Who the **** still uses anti-viruses? Also why would Office take 4-6 hours. I downloaded office (via a totally definitely legal means - *wink wink*) and it didn't take that long at all.

    AVG is quite a good antivirus package. I also rate malware bytes. Plus i always get my software the legit way.

    Oh so your getting a laptop? Yea those specs are good. Could do with a ram upgrade down the road but you should be fine for streaming videos and playing games at normal settings...

    At the minute I think your only issue would be with multi-tasking (because of the ram) but other than that your golden
