    Hello,

    Seeing as my old computer is a little netbook and it won't run some of my programs I need, I was considering upgrading to a newer laptop. I'd rather have the notebook size I think (but I'd consider something bigger if it was better), just for size and transport purposes. I'm looking for it to support general university work, but have enough power to watch films, and maybe use a graphics program like GIMP, and not slow down all the time. I like the look of windows 8 but I'd heard a lot about the problems with it too! I don't think I want a surface or anything like that as I already have a nexus 7 tablet so don't need anything really touchscreen or detachable. I can stretch to around the £500 if it is better.
    I'm a bit clueless around laptops really! My old model is an ASUS and I did like the battery life and reliability.
