Getting my eldest a new laptop for her birthday, It;s replaced a very elderly chromebook which has done good service, but is a bit of a pain for certain uni stuff (playing nice with uni vpn stuff I think) so she needs a windows machine this time.
she doesn’t play games, doesn’t make music, edit video or use photoshop. Use will be limited to accessing spotify, watching netflix and the like and writing essays etc for uni.
Needs to have enough storage to actually be able to download the latest windows software updates (younger daughters laptop has had issues with this)
what should I buy people? budget is about £300. they all look the same, and all seem to have reviews which are either “excellent” or “slowest laptop ever”
