hi all, hope you are all having a good christmas or whatever it you do at this time of year

not been active for a while as the lappy has been behaving itself for once, but now the time has come to finally replace the old donkey..

found this on amazon and wondered if anyone could offer an opinion on whether its any good or not, or point me to somewhere that offers something worth having for about the same price

happy new year all

 

PS..didnt know where to post this so if ts in the wrong place please feel free to move it :)

 

regards

nige

I don't like the Celeron processor. Other than that it's a Decent laptop.

 

I would recommend a Intel i5 processor and 8GB of ram.

 

I don't see anything in your price rang though.

Still a Celeron processor. Bottom line, they are significantly slower than other Intel processors.

I don't know anything about AMD but they do make good processors. They have a Celeron equivalent which I believe is the Athlon, avoid that one.
