Hi,I purchased a Dell E5420 Latitude refurbished about 5 years ago for around £250 and while it is still going strong I am thinking about getting a new laptop.

I am not very tech savvy and was hoping some of you experienced users would be able to give me some recommendations if you have the time?

I am not a gamer and only use my laptop for things like : web surfing,e-mail,printing,playing my guitar,video converting,watching movies and downloading.

 

I would like the new laptop to support windows 10 as while my current lappy runs it win10 is not supported on my model.

I would like at least 8gb of Ram and a more powerful and faster processor than my current i5-2520m.

I would also like an HD 1920X1080 display.

It also has to have an HDMI port to connect to tv and usb 2.0 and 3.0 ports.

A DVD Writer is a must and I would like high quality sound.

 

I am hoping to pick up another refurbished laptop for maybe £200-£350.

If anyone can recommend some uptodatish laptops with these features that would be grand?

Are you sure that you are going able to get all of that thing with only around 400 dollars? 8 GB RAM is not possible at least you want to stick with AMD processor or you could go with I3 processor, but with 4 or 6 GB RAM.

Hi,I intend to buy a refurbished laptop.....I'm not really sure if I'll be able to get all that but I might increase my budget if needs be.
