Hi

I've been looking at laptops to buy for my daughter to last her through the last few years of school upto her gcse. The thing is I need to stay within a budget of around £300 but all the reviews are not very good for that price. Can anyone help me.

Would it not depend on what she needs to do with it as to which one to get?
For example does she really need 1TB of memory? or a touch screen? (yes handy, but are they a must?)

Have a look at Lenova, Should pick up some good specs for that money, even better if you wait till the new year when they slash em by half.

Worth looking at student prices as well.

I am assuming that you will want to run Microsoft Home and student if you haven't got it already hence the need for a laptop it may be free for qualifying schools

You can get the 3 year warranty for an extra £30
plus is the ssd, and windows 10 if needed
