    Hey guys, I need a laptop for my new job, and the guy who offered me the job said pick a laptop under £600, anything you like. I am now browsing but there is so much to choose from. I am looking after a very good screen and fast cpu, GPU is not that important as I will be mostly doing office stuff and will have to work on cad and pdf drawings. I want a good display that can be viewed from not only 1 angle and good keyboard and battery. Touchscreen is a bonus but I will be using a mouse anyway.

    I was looking at
    Huawei Matebook D14 or D15 , and the
    Lenovo IDEAPAD FLEX 14.

    Should I be looking at something else?

    I'm in a similar boat; my wife goes back to work soon and will be working from home, so she has $600 to buy her equipment. I reckon £100 for a cheap 22" monitor leaves enough to get a decent enough laptop but it's a minefield, the technology moves so fast.

    I was looking at the Lenovo V15, it'll mean going above the meagre budget but there's no point buying a bad laptop, is there?

    I gave these 2 options to the guy and told him to buy what ever he likes, ill be ok with any of the two.
    If you order the Huawei from their website , it comes with free wireless mouse and wireless earbuds.
    The Lenovo - being a touchscreen supports Active Pen Stylus so I will order it myself at a later stage.
