    About to start AS levels and I thought I would get a Laptop for revision.

    I'd like it to be portable so that I can take to school easily and I'd like it to use Google Drive, TSR (obviously) and perhaps some video editing.

    I'm aiming at around £150-£250 and looking at all the different laptops I'm not sure which one to get!

    Any advice/ recommendations I'd like to know what people think are good and bad about their laptops

    I'd look into HP ones, although the ones I'm thinking of range between £250 and £300 I think. They're pretty solid, last nicely, and are pretty cheap for what you get. They'll be able to run video editing software okay. This one is a little more than you're willing to spend, although is on sale and holds up really well. You could also get away with one with less RAM, like this one, however you might find it a bit slow and difficult to do some things on. I gotta say, I did like my HP as a cheap laptop. The battery life was really good
