    So i am planning to get a new laptop, i have saved up and i don't really want to go over £800. I will be use it for the usual movies, work, music but also for stuff like video editing and possibly gaming.

    Hence i am hoping to get a decent amount of ram and processor.

    Do you guys have any recommendations for what the best laptop i could get for no more than £800 is?

    Or is it worth saving up more and getting a Macbook pro?

    Thanks x

    you would get more components for your money if you buy a windows computer but if you are really going to get into editing then an apple would be more worthwhile in the long run but i will let you figure that out yourself. I always look on ebuyer when buying a new computer as they have great deals and their sales sometimes have amazing deals. If i was you i would look around computing websites and shops in the january sales to pick yourself up a really good bargain.

    Apart from the face the cheapest mac may come down to around £700 - £750 .. and the cheapest mac will in no way be satisfactory for what he wants.

    Ignore mac suggestions.

    I recommend the Sony Vaio , you'll want a 15+ inch screen thus you either get the base F series model for £780.
    Or get either the 15" or 17" E series and do a bit of customising for what you want.

    HP is also a good brand, look at those too if you wish.
