so i'm kinda poor and my current laptop is starting to chug when working with large files. it's 1gb ram shared with the graphics card and the first gen core duo processor. i'd like to spend about £400-500 and my absolute limit is £600.
i've found the Lenovo G770 seems to be going for a good deal (i think?). it's been a while since i caught up with computer hardware. it's an i5-2410M cpu, separate graphics card, and 8gb ram, 1600x900 display. although according to this review, its contrast ratio is 150:1. this contrast ratio is new to me, but is this really a deal-breaker? because the rest of the specs seem to be the best for the money, in this price range.
