New laptop specs

I'm in need of a new laptop and was wondering about the specs I'll need.

Besides the usual run of the mill email, web and letter writing, I'll also like to watch the BBC's iplayer and others without the screen freezing or juddering.

Does any one have any ideas? on processor, ram and dedicated or shared graphics?

That bit is down to how good or bad your internet connection is.

Otherwise, any up to date laptop will do what you want.

Thanks MAJ.

Fortunately my internet connection is OK (cable), currently using an ancient laptop 10yrs+ which is showing signs of age.
