i just need something thats lightweight and fast i guess.
yeah i have so many pictures and videos on my current laptop. i need to declutter it. But even when it wasnt cluttered it used to take forever to boot up and it still does.

I'd recommend the Huawei Matebook Pro
Brilliant!
Not laggy, i think 8gb of RAM, lightweight, 10hrs battery, fingerprint recognition lock.
Best laptop I've had so far - I use it all day every day for Uni and the battery lasts, stays fast and is not laggy!

That'll do it. I recommend buying a laptop with 8 GB of RAM, that'll make multitasking easier and you'll be able to find one with 8 GB of RAM at a reasonable price without compromising on the processor. I also recommend buying one from cex.com, the prices are decent and I'm pretty sure their laptops come with a warranty.

Think I've figured out why it's so slow, you need 4 gigs minimum ideally 8gb+ for a fast computer.
