    I need a new laptop for uni because the one I currently have (Packard bell tk85) has gotten really slow and I think I have loads of viruses on it, had it for almost 3 years. It's also quite heavy and I'd like a lighter weight one.

    Has anyone got any good suggestions for a new, light weight and easy to use laptop? Also what kind of malware protection to install? I know nothing about laptops so I need someone to tell me!! If I get any replies, thanks

    How much are you willing to spend? Is battery life a factor? What sort of things will you be doing on it?

    Up to like £350? I don't even know what a reasonable price for a laptop is. The cheaper the better tbh, but it needs to be good quality. Hmm I'm not too bothered about the battery life, but I'm sure they all can last at least 5 hours?
    I'll be mainly using the internet, going on Skype, doing assignments on it, typical things for a student to do.

    Laptops and their prices vary massively, at the bottom you can get cheap laptops and Chromebooks for £200, and at the other end you could spend well over £1000 on a top MacBook/Ultrabook.

    If you want something cheap with good battery life I'd go for a Chromebook, they perform better than underpowered Windows machines in that price range and have much better battery life.

    Also, you can't really define typical things for a student could given the number of factors that will affect what different people want. :lol:
