Hello all. I see that this question has been asked before but I don't see a straightforward answer. Perhaps there isn't one! I am looking to buy x 2 (two sons) laptops @ around 4-500 pounds each which my boys will be able to use for all of the above. At the moment they are playing WOW and minecraft, but I guess they will evolve. Or not. Can somebody advise me on what I should be looking for - I have trawled the internet and am having difficulty in not being up-sold ie corei5 to i7 ... basically I want a dell/asus/HP that does the job and don't really need all the bells and whistles. It wld be lovely to have beats speakers and 640GB hard drive BUT is it really necessary? Kids are 12 & 14. BIG THANKS to anyone who feels generous enough to answer without telling me to buy alienware :)
