For reasons I won't go into, I'm looking at replacing my current Windows laptop. I have provisionally sold my old one to a friend and I'm now looking at its replacement. I do have my MacBook Pro, and yes I can run boot camp it, but having tried it I prefer having OSX on a dedicated machine and then a Windows based laptop - makes my life easier. Looking at getting something business grade and spoke to the guys from IT the other week and they can't fault the above machines highly enough. Yes I am looking buying used and eBay has no shortage of them. I wasn't expecting to be able to pick up a Core i5 based laptop for under £150 ! The IT guys say these have been dropped, prodded, poked, pushed & bounced up and down like sausages in a pan and they still work perfectly. I was told the only time one didn't work was when it got dropped 40 foot down a lift shaft. Also looking at these as they are a really decent size and I do a fair bit of traveling about between home in Weston and Redruth in Cornwall so a 12 - 13 inch laptop is much lighter and saves me much needed room in my bag Also they look so easy to upgrade unlike my current Lenovo consumer grade laptop, putting an SSD and 8 gig of RAM in that thing was a nightmare.
