    Need a new personal laptop - Out of the loop!

    My aging Toshiba laptop is only just starting to struggle now and with Windows 8 and Office 2013 out it seems now is an excellent time to let it retire!

    So, I'm looking for a laptop in the £300 - £500 price range.

    At home, it is my main computer pretty much although I don't have any requirements for gaming - Just general Office / Facebook etc. Although I would like it to be at least capable of running a couple of VMs too.

    Any suggestions? Intel ideally, also I would like an SSD but presumably it'll be cheaper to get one with a standard drive and do the SSD swap out myself.

    SSD swap out is always the way to go unless you have more money to the rest of us

    Lenovo if you can find a good one in your Price range. Then stick an SSD in!

    This looks nice!

    I normally have a look at Refurbished Dell Computers and Dell Outlet - Refurbished Laptops, Desktops & Servers | Dell UK for the best deals. The Dell outlet normally has some cracking deals on laptops including 3yr NBD.
