Laptop for university!

  Pykey99 18 May 11

Looking to get a new laptop for university. Wanting a laptop that's very good performance and entertainment wise. Looking at something in the range of £700-£800

So far I have narrowed it down to the HP DV6-6053ea:

What are your thoughts on this laptop?

Any suggestions on better laptops in this price range ?

it might be worth looking at HP laptops on the John Lewis site as they offer 2-year warranty - which could be valuable to you?

Look for one that: 1. Doesn't mind being dropped 2. Can withstand copious quantities of beer spilled onto its keyboard 3. Is immune to pizza crumbs 4. Has a surface from which Marmite, pasta sauce and ketchup can be easily removed.

How do I know? Two children gone through uni!

May I also add to "onthelimit1's" list.

One that no one else wants: Otherwise it'll never make it's way back to you when you leave it in the Pub or it will get stolen.

from previous post check out the Toshiba satellite R850-169 which has a protected Hdd for knocks and drops and a protected keyboard for spills and a good battery life 5.5 to 8 hours depending on use
