Morning. I'm looking to replace our current Lenovo laptop which is so slow now to the point of almost being unusable.

Looking at something along the lines of:
https://www.ebuyer.com/799645-acer-travelmate-p259-g2-m-50yf-laptop-nx-vepek-008

What do you techies think?
Don't want to spend any more than 500.
Ideally with a DVD/CD drive so wiffy can play her old games and I can rip DVDs for my hard drive.

Ta muchly.

All under 500.

Same rules still apply as before, get the most memory (8gb is a must) get the biggest SSD (240gb+) preferably an m2 ssd rather than sata and get any dual core processor that is 2 ghz+ preferably with a turbo boost to 3ghz (although not that reliant).

All of these fit the bill better than your suggestion, if you need bigger HDD space then get an external to store films/music on but using HDD as a boot drive is so archaic now and don't bother at all with an ssd less than 240gb either. All are 1080p screen, and pretty sure they all have DVD too.

Makes are all a much of a muchness really with laptops but IMO Asus are the best build quality, HP and Lenovo both pretty decent too.

Wether you will ever notice the difference between and i3 and i5 in day to day jobs is highly doubtful unless you do a lot of photo editing/video editing.

Hope this helps.
