Hi there, my laptop is around 3 years old and is falling apart. Parts needed and repair costs mean its probably wiser to invest in a new pc. In general its not used for gaming, streaming or anything other than poker, emails and banking, can anyone recommend a good, speedy ,reasonably priced laptop , ( im in the uk ) Smile

You dont need some strong graphic card if you r not using it for gaming and streaming... you should only focus to procesor and ram...Laptop for your need shouldnt be expencive... I dont know prices in UK, so I cant help with that Sad

I have been using IBM (Lenovo) ThinkPad series since the late '90s and have had no issue with their products. The series used to cost around $3,000 but they are inexpensive now.
Nothing fancy about their appearance/performance/pre-installed softwares, etc., but they have been doing a pretty good job for me.
Highly recommended.

It all depends how much money you want to spend... but i5 procesor would do exelent job... and you should take with 8GB of ram... that would run poker like crazy... find some laptop like that... in my coutry its something like 500e... If you want better you should go with i7 procesor, and I dont think you will need more than 8GB of ram...

Have to agree with Tony and my personal opinion is that today Lenovo makes the most successfull sales and it has good parts in laptop. Im thinkin of buying myself the same + if it some help one of my buddy who also has Lenovo says that works perfectly well and doesnt feal sorry for spending money on it.

K johny, got the thing for ya, heres http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-RV515-15-6-inch-Laptop/... samsung laptop, well SAMSUNG its all i should say and end with it but still Big Smile what i dont like on it, is the processor which is only dual core, and it only has 4 gigs of ram, but i dont think u can find anything cheaper with those specs. i mean come on its only 224 pionds, or u can go for door 2, for just 105 pounds more but double the specs. http://www.amazon.co.uk/HP-15-n267sa-15-6-inch-Quad-Cor...
Both will do excellent job, the only difference is, one of them will better suit your pocket Big Smile

I am in a similar position and will need a laptop fro poker soon.It all comes down to price and if you want a standard laptop or a laptop/tablet combo etc.
I have been looking at the i5 selections and most of those will have 8GB RAM and 1TB memory so should be ideal for your needs.Those are around £400/£500 for a average one but I have seen some i5s cheaper.
I was looking at a Lenovo i5 at John Lewis for around £420 and they offered an extra 3 year guarantee free and they will match any cheaper price.
Saying all that a friend of mine bought an i3 Toshiba nearly 3 years ago,40% off from Argos refurbished and it is still going strong,he has lots of poker tables open and he says it is the best laptop he has ever had so maybe a cheaper i3 could do the job.

Consider buying one with the new Skylake processor; it uses much less power with better performance.
I'm waiting for the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 that will come out within the next few months.

I have a Lenovo wich costs like $1K. And it works like a charm on 99% of the current games.
As for poker you will be able to have more than 15 tables runnimg at once without any problem.
