    My bro needs a laptop for surfing the web, word and playing the odd game (nothing too demanding) or two he also prefers smaller screen laptops.

    He as a budget of £550 max to spend. What's the best value laptop he can get?

    I know this is difficult because of the competitors rule but the name of the laptop will do :)

    Thanks chaps

    You Really Need to Write a List of Specs you Require and go from there.
    Does He Need a DVD Rewriter on
    What Size Screen? Widescreen?
    Does he want a TrueBright Screen? They Look Very nice?
    Weight to Perfomance Ratio. ie a A heavier System he'll accept the more powerful you would be able to get. On the Otherhand The Lighter The Less Powerful.
    Does He Want Built in Wireless.
    What Kind of Games will he be playing. ie an Inbuilt ATI 9000 Card will Get away with a very old Half Life Game, like wise an inbuilt basic Card Will Get away with only 2D Games. If he plans playing games from with the last 2 or even 3 Years its gonna need a Good Standalone Card.
