    hi

    I'm looking to buy my first laptop, I don't want anything fancy, just for word documents, emails, YouTube and a little Minecraft (not a priority as only play about an hour a fortnight). I have spent hours traveling through the web and have just got really confused as to what everything means. My budget is about £500, but anything under would be better.

    thanks in advance for your help

    This one is particularly good, It features the new i5-8250U which is incredibly fast, 8GB of RAM and a fast SSD storage. The only issue I can see here is the storage being small but it is worth it for the SSD as that will be thing that speeds up the laptop the most. https://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/compu...69401-pdt.html

    It will handle everything you need. I have the same CPU and am able to run Minecraft at 100 - 200 FPS, it has 4 cores and 8 threads and can boost to 3.2 GHz if that means anything to you.
