Need A Little Help Buying A Laptop
A while back (last year, actually) I was looking for a Laptop. I got a lot of help from different people there, which I do appreciate very much. Lots of help from McGuire, or something like that. Can't remember. Anyway, life got in the way of things, and I had to postpone everything a little bit. I am, however, still looking for a Laptop for basic use.
Things I'd like to do on it are just basic browsing, watching videos, etc.. Obviously, a good bit of HDD/SSD space and all that would be great too. I don't need too much, but just in case, you know? Oh, and I'll be doing different things at once, like Youtube on one browser and another, heavier website on another with lots of stuff going on in the page itself, which I know slows everything the hell down a lot.
I decided that, since it's not anything to complicated, I'd just go to a regular electronics place, like PC World or Currys (I'm from the U.K.). I had a look on their site, but there are so many damn options with all these terms and things I've never even heard of.
What do you guys recommend I look out for these days? What specs/ports, etc., would you guys think could be useful or even necessary? I know it's for basic use, but a little bit of forward-planning never hurt anyone, right?
I'm guessing Windows 10 over 7... a decent screen for HD or 4K, or whatever's going on now... plenty of USB ports, an Ethernet port, etc.... a good bit of battery life.... maybe Asus or Lenovo...
Anything else I should look out for? And what should I avoid?
P.S. The budget I've got is around £500.
