    Laptop Advice

    I'm getting my own laptop pretty soon so I've been doing some research about which one I should get. Seeing as I have no idea about which I should get/ what the descriptions mean etc, I thought you guys might. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Specs:

    Under 400 ($660 or 480 Euro)
    Plenty of disk space
    Reasonable Ram (about 2-4GB)
    Enough CPU to handle making music on (Using Ableton), so I'd imagine that's quite a lot but I don't know what the numbers mean.
    Windows 7
    Preferably inbuilt internet
    USB slots
    Not a Notebook

    Since you said you wanted inbuilt 3g or something I assume you wanna be "on the go" with this thing a lot? If not you could build a pretty reasonable PC for 6 hunnit yo.

    Just letting you know.

    Thanks for trying TheSpectre, I don't know if I particularly like it. Only one USB, Windows 8 too.

    @Mitchell: Not 3G, just to connect to the internet without having to plug in an external Wireless LAN thing. It's going to be on the go much.

    This is the laptop that I'm almost certainly going to be getting, my Dad's going to get someone to downgrade it to Windows 7. After many hours of research, this seems to be the most fitting. You can go ahead and lock this.

    I'm pretty sure it's going to happen for free, because my Dad works at an IT place so he can get someone to do that for us. Mates rates ftw.
