    I'm a PC user and I've never been a fan of using laptops because of the small keyboards, but since I'm going to uni starting this September I thought it would be good to have a personal system where I can install custom fonts and design related software packages since the uni computers won't let you install anything.

    I'll be primarily be using this for extensive graphic design work and need it to run Adobe Photoshop CS6 smoothly, but I might do some light video editing and motion graphics so Premiere Pro CS6 and After Effects CS6 as well.

    I'll also be using it for obvious things like web browsing, watching movies (1080p HD) and listening to music.

    Any recommendations on a laptop? My budget is around £500 but I'm willing to go a bit higher if needed.

    Thanks

    Your budget is very tight to be honest....................especi ally getting a laptop with a good resolution most are HD but are stuck with low resolution. And ideally I would push for a i7, but there none under £500 at the moment which is the major issue.
