I'd like a fast start up and decent display. Maybe light gaming.

I was thinking:

  • SSD
  • 8/16GB RAM
  • 15.6" HD Screen

Budget under £400.

  • I don't think such a thing exists. The cheapest laptop Newegg has that meets your criteria costs $1200.

  • Can you define "light gaming". You might consider GTA 5 on medium settings "light gaming".

  • Gaming is an after thought really. I'm more interested in a decent build, SSD, decent screen...etc However I do play PC games, I own GTA4, Skyrim, and other slightly older games, and if I could play them, it would be a bonus, but I'm not too bothered as I have my PC and PS4 for that.

1 Answer 1



  • Lenovo G50-80 with ex. i7-5500U/16GB/240 SSD
  • Dell Inspiron 5548 i5-5200U/8GB/128SDD+500HDD if you do not like wasting money on DVD (well over the budget, good graphics)
  • ASUS R556LJ-XO603D-8 i3-5005U/8GB/128SSD+1TB GF920 (well under the budget, good graphics)
  • The ASUS sounds good, but I can't see anywhere selling it for the UK with a quick Google search.
