Right, so I'm after a relatively cheap windows laptop. It'll be mainly used for education purposes - primarily statistical data analysis, web browsing and watching Netflix etc. Gaming isn't really a priority but nice if possible. It must have an SSD, an optical drive is optional, both 13 and 15-inch models would be appreciated, as unsure which I'm after yet. Pretty sure 8gb ram is needed. Build quality - something that will last is the most important thing, though. The problem is I have no knowledge of windows laptops, so I have no idea what brands I should be looking at. What brands or laptop lineups are generally considered reliable? Cheers.
