    Hi all, looking for some recommendations please! (sorry if it's a bit long winded!)


    What is your budget - 800ish although can go a bit higher if needs must.

    What size laptop do you want? Between 15 and 17 inches

    Do you have resolution requirements? Deffinitely prefer 1080p

    What will you be using the laptop for? Web design (using Serif Webplus), some HD video editing (does not need to be done very very fast). Some gaming, although again not too fussed. I want the quality of the pitcure whilst watching BluRay to be as good as possible (very important)


    How long does the battery need to last? Not too fussy

    Does it need to be portable? Not really

    Do you require Blu-Ray? YES

    Do you require HDMI output? Yes

    Do you have a preferred brand? Would prefer Dell, Sony, HP etc, but am open minded

    Would you be happy with a refurbished laptop? Would prefer not to

    In Summary -

    I am looking for a pretty decent spec laptop that has a fantastic quality screen for watching BluRay plus HD footage shot on a camera.
