I'll probably just be using programs like Word and Excel etc. and a basic image viewer (Plus a few games!), but I want something with quite a large capacity that isn't going to slow down all that much. Also, something with a relatively long battery life would be good!
A friend who works with computers recommended that I get a Medion (and avoid Packard Bell like the plague), but searching on the net I found the following comment about a Medion model "...is not a mobility CPU. It's hot, it's a battery eater. Fans slow down after a few minutes. But any video or cpu task put the fans on to full speed." Does anyone know if they're generally like this? Because if so I certainly won't be getting one...
Any advice much appreciated
