    Cheap Laptop advice??

    I am hoping someone will have some advice for me, im looking for a budget laptop for around the 150 -200 price range, i have been looking at Google Chrome books as they seem quite cheap but ideally i would like a windows 8 option with a HDMI port as i would like to video editing and also printing from the laptop.

    Anyone have some suggestions?

    I think for that price, you need to look around for refurbished stock. You will struggle to meet all those requirements though.

    Sounds like you are after something that will play Crysis 3 but only have the budget to buy something that will play the first age of empires.

    All the same you need to think about spending something closer to 350-450 if you want anything half decent that will last and meet the video editing requirements.

    How about this? http://www.ict-direct.co.uk/hp-6930p-elitebook.html

    Can't help with the HDMI port, but we can pop windows 7 on it for you (who needs 8 anyway?)

    We've got all kinds of configurations / warranties too, just drop me a line if you're interested!
