There is so much information available when making a purchasing decision, often complex and technical, that often consumers are too bewildered and confused to make rational decisions.
The Recommended Directory scans the internet and printed press to find and review recommendations for a wide variety of products and services, and summarises that information in one short and relevant recommendation for each product or service. This article is about budget laptops.
The Recommended Directory has scanned a number of authorative organisations to identify their recommenations, and set these out in the table below.
All these laptops should be priced below £500, and broadly of a similar spec, though there are deals and variations at different times. As can be seen, there is a wide variety of laptops recommended, but those set out below are all highly rated by the respective testers, and the ultimate choice will be down to availability and individual preference for the detailed specifications.
On balance, we’d go for the Acer Aspire 5536 , (click for more information), which is recommended by Cnet, TechRadar and What Laptop. The Acer Aspire 5536 is a 15.6 inch display laptop, with an AMD Turion RM-74 2.2 GHz processor, 4 GB RAM, 320 GB HDD, and Vista Home Premium (offers on upgrade to Windows 7 may be available)
