    Recommended Posts

    Guest UzinOz

    I would just like to say "Hi" to everyone, I have been popping into this site for a while now, without posting, shame on me :wubclub:

     

    I need some advice on laptops, I'm thinking of buying one and I'm not very technical so don't really know what I'm looking for. It'll be used for puting video clips onto dvd's, downloading some music (not much), using webcam and general internet browsing. I don't know what gb of ram and stuff I should be looking at.

     

    Any help would be appreciated :notworthy:

    hi there jackie

     

    basically any make with these settings

     

    downloading will depend on the speed of your internet setting... the faster the better.

    webcam... two things here... one. buy a lappy with one built in.... two. buy an external USB2 web cam..... any will do the trick....

     

    Videos are a different matter.... the minimum spec is :-

     

    1gb RAM (2gb recommended, especially if VISTA is installed)

    any DUO CORE processor or AMD X2 processor (it will say this on the lappy)

    80gb - 100gb harddrive (storage space) the bigger the better

    the screen size will be YOUR pererence... ideally 17" for clearer and sharper images....

     

    the rest of the lappy will be you on choice.... i.e hp, dell, sony....
