    Thank you! Looks good to me, would you recommend this over an Apple laptop ?

    Not a problem!

    I'd say it's probably better than Apple laptops in value for your money.

    If you wanted an Apple laptop, you'd have to raise your budget slightly higher I'm afraid. Unless you want a pre-owned one?

    I don't mind going down the pre owned route at all! Would just like a reliable laptop to see me through uni.

    Hey again!

    Sorry about the late reply!

    Check this MacBook air out: https://www.wowcher.co.uk/deal/shop/...0aAlTHEALw_wcB

    It's refurbished, hence why it's cheaper than new.
