    I would say get largest SSD possible depending on your budget, perhaps 256GB is more than fine but some laptops have 2nd hard drive that are normal hard drives so you can have 1TB or so of storage.

    Just google around, Lenovo, Acer, Dell are pretty decent.
    Would you believe - My laptop, phone and kindle - all started playing up around the same time?¬*

    I'll invest in a new laptop next year In Sha Allaah. It seems to be alright for the time being, and I'm able to use it for work etc.¬*

    I used to have Dell desktop computer before this - it was good. Might just get one of those again In Sha Allaah, although before this, never had any issues with the Vaio either.¬*

      Helpful thread

      I am currently using my brother's laptop (windows surfaces something like that, i don't know these things so lmso) trying to hold out on buying one :/

      It's quite good but expensive

      It does heat up quickly and battery goes low quick but I have been told that is due to me having a million tabs open
      (I always have so many tabs open, research and references that needed to be referred back to)

      It is good for multitasking, so whether your working, studying or watching videos
      ​​​​​​
      Storage is good, I don't know how much though

      I'd be interested in knowing which one you eventually end up buying - indefinable

      I had a rubbish Hp laptop, I'm not going back to that

      Complete waste of my money lol

        It's alright now Alhamdulillah.¬*

        What is an SSD? I will get back to you regarding RAM and Processor.¬*

        Hmm. I think over heating might be due to full hard drive.¬*
        SSD is Solid State Drive. It's much faster than the normal HDD and hence can make things stored in the drive load much faster.

              Depends on what you need your laptop for? I am an IT professional and I am still using my laptop since 12 years. If it is just a charger problem, just buy a new one and upgrade your laptop to Windows 10 if possible. I always buy the best quality laptop on offer, so I am able to use it for so long. The one before this, it was a hand me down, but we had it for eight years, alhamdulillah.

                I use my laptop that I bought in September 2011. I like Windows 7.

                Undos 7 is da best. Undos 10 is terrible.¬*
