So my existing laptop died mid-FM yesterday - totally switched off. It's back on again now, but given it's age, the fact it burns to touch the bottom of it when the CPU is pushing 100% and sounds louder than a plane taking off, I'm not going to try FM again.
I've a budget of £500 and I'd like the best I can have - for 3D, half a dozen or so leagues, big database - I'll go just over it for value, and I don't mind a refurbished one.
(Edit: I've had another look through, and was wondering which of these would be recommended the most - or is there a better option?) http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/X555UJ-XO070T-ASUS-X555UJ-XO070T_1829327.html http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/NX.G3HEK.001-Acer-Aspire-E5-574G_1925700.html <-- My gut says this http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/CB-CZ5840-1010XK-Cube-Chameleon-CZ-5840_1841718.html http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/X556UB-XX039T-ASUS-X556UB-XX039T_1970470.html http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/K501UB-DM020T-ASUS-K501UB-DM020T_1845634.html
