Hi folks. Ive never bought a laptop before and am on the hunt for a chrissy prezzy for the misses around £300-£400. She's just taken up photgraphy so would be looking for one that would offer high res and large photo handling capacity. She'd also look for one that'll handle DVDs as where we go on holiday doesn't have TV reception, and it'll keep the young un happy on rainy days. It'll be mainly used in the house so battery life isn't really that much of an issue. A standard screen would be fine and it might get used for gaming if I can sneak on , not fussy about brand as long as it's reliable. Thanks for any assistance offered.
