    I'd try and find one on the Dell Outlet site - basically full of laptops that have been returned to Dell (and their fault fixed) and their price is then hugely discounted.

    With your budget you could go for a XPS 13/low-spec 15 ( a very nice laptop!)

    XPS are nice machines. If you want something premium I like the HP Spectre X360. It folds into a (slightly heavier) tablet, it's touch screen too. I opted for this over a Mac because I wanted to stick with Windows. It's really thin and quiet http://compadvance.co.uk/en/item/420...FUw8Gwod1IENjA

    I found this one. You really want a new laptop with an i7 processor and at least 8 gig of ram for that money. Also buy new, not second user thanks. New is much better.

    Not really, i brought my last laptop sub 300, and for an extra 50, i could have got an i3 processor, which is really the minimum build, for a decent laptop!
