    So, ya boi needs to get a new laptop, and is in need of recommendations

    I don't really have many criteria since I'd mainly be using it for work, just something that's reliable and uses Windows

    Price range is £300-400 / 350-450€

    Any advice would be useful, thx xo

    I can't help much but just don't get Acer because they don't have a long life span.

    I heard that Asus and Lenovo are pretty good.

    It's difficult to have a decent laptop for €450.
    It's better to increase the budget and go for a true beast.
    €800-€900 budget and you will have a quad core with more memory.
    Today dual cores are to slow.
    As for Acer,i have 1 of almost €700,it is working but the USB 3.0 port is faling,and their support is bad.
    It is the only cheap brand in the market but it's not reliable.
    The store didn't have ASUS,i would have to wait one month,and this had the budget and the specs i wanted.
    Laptops under €800 are usually Acer or HP,it sucks.
    The best is ASUS or Toshiba but it's expensive,still laptops of that price are powerfull and they have better hardware.
    Unfortunatelly we can't have quality at low price.
    If i buy another one some time,i will have to buy Toshiba or ASUS.

    You can buy decent laptop for that price, for work/internet purposes. Expect i3 processor, rarely i5. Brands that i can recommend are: Lenovo, Asus, Dell (maybe even Toshiba, but not in general). If you find something that you like, feel free to post it here, im gonna give you my opinion. Kinda have qualification to be relevant on this subject.

    Example: atleast 4GB RAM, and SSD and without intergrated graphic card if it's possible.

    Assuming that the price/quality equivalence is the same everywhere as it is i my country (though it'd probably be cheaper outside of it),you can raise your budget by just 50 euros more putting you at the 500s level where you can find a 'small monster' (considering the price range).
    I've recently found one here with these specs:

    Lenovo
    RAM - 4GB
    Hard Drive - 128GB SSD
    Processor - i5,7th generation,dual core,2.5 GHz

    Since you're not interested in gaming,the graphics card isn't something that should concern you too much.I'm not adding a link because the description is in greek and the company doesn't transport anything abroad (I think). But there should be similar deals available to you so keep those specs in mind while choosing.By the way,500 euros may seem a lot but the i5,7th generation processor,and more importantly the SSD hard drive,make it worth it.

    don't buy lenovo in that price range. it looks good, but on the longer term (2-3 years) it's rubish.

    But I agree with Yuuzume that for an i5 or i7 processor a small raise in the range would be profitable.
    Personally I would go for an acer chromebook 13 or a dell inspiron 15.

    Personally I don't have any complaints from lenovo so far.I've seen lenovo in that price range that more than paid off the money it cost to buy them in the long run.Any laptop will deteriorate over time with regular use but I don't think this is especially the case for a lenovo laptop,it should be the same as any other.

    Personally,I'm not a big fan of Acer,as far as laptops go at least,but I strongly recommend Dell (same as Chaud).Asus is also top notch.Lenovo as well but that was implied anyway by my previous statements.

    Lenovo is from IBM,i heard that,so it must be good.
    I don't think Dell has a laptop of that price at least decent,since they own Alienware.
    I saw pcs of €400 and i wouldn't use them even for simple things like watching videos or using net.
    They are too slow.

    This one looks good,but the processor would be too slow if he uses Windows 10.
    I don't even recommend to use the 64 bit version because it only has 4gb memory.
    But since @Marco Polo wants a simple pc,not too expensive,i hope we can help him.

    My now dead laptop is an ASUS, the motherboard just gave in. So I'm not exactly jumping back in to buy one, lol

    Thank you for all the recommendations, I will look in to this further

    I'm not entirely certain about that I can't accurately answer you,but at least from my personal knowledge,Dell in indeed known mainly for its high spec machines.

    Now,Marco,I think you live in England,not sure though.So the companies where I usually look for laptops won't do for you.But I found one in this site that might interest you.
    The prices really are good abroad.As you can see,this model has an i5,8th generation processor (thought i'd suggest asking about its Ghz capability as well),an SSD hard drive of 128 GB and 8GB of RAM.It's a very good deal and certainly worth considering.

    EDIT: It being a product of Lenovo is a plus in my book but I don't know how you feel about it.Also it also comes in white,in case you prefer that.
