We want to get our daughter a laptop for Christmas + Birthday (13 in January).
School use PCs so I guess that means Windows 8 OS. I'm aware of chrome books but isn't that pretty much all based online?
I tend to buy this sort of thing from John Lewis for the after sales service, and I see that they offer a 2yr guarantee on all laptops. It doesn't have to be JL of course, it's just the first place I look, but service in the event of a problem does matter.
Budget not set in stone, we would rather pay for something decent that will see her through high school, so 4-5 yrs. £400ish maybe, if you can get something decent for that (?), although I expect I'll have to shell out for the Office software too.
She's quite a dab hand at making/editing movies on her iPod, so something that will be good for that would be nice. Other than that it's music, photos, and schoolwork.
I still marvel at my iPad, so I reckon there might be one or two on here who know a little more than me! Give me some suggestions.
