    The title says it all really. I have had my computer for around 4 years, and it has been fairly faithful, however, I think it is time that I moved on, as the fan is quite loud now and for some reason, it crashes once every day..

    Anyway, to the laptop part. I only really use my computer for the internet and watching the occasional movie and listening to music, so I thought, hey, why not get a laptop? As no doubt I'll still do an awful lot of word processing because I really enjoy writing random things.
    I don't want to spend more than £400 on a laptop. I just want it to be able to run a fair few things at once, I.E the internet, a movie, and a work document (I haven't bought a new computer in ages, I don't know how much I'm actually asking), I also want it to be fairly quick, however I don't mind waiting for it to boot up, I'm fairly patient.

    Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you kindly!

    I personally would go against what the other user has said.
    Currently in the market, in terms of reliability Acer and Dell are at the bottom, apart from Dell's business range.

    And the first 3 are overpriced...

    Here's a good maker and good specs........ Asus i5

    Also remember its windows 8, so you need to get used to the new interface.

    To the OP

    regarding your noisy fan and computer crashing once a day, have you cleaned your laptop before? I mean, vacuuming the fan usually does the trick in reducing the noise levels and power consumption
