    Hello, I need a new computer because mine is a quite old and noisy. I need at least a Intel i5 with 500 gb - 1tb.
    Thanks

    You gotta give more info than that. How much do you want to spend? Are you buying a pre built one? Or parts to build yourself?

    Laptops are much less powerful. If you are using it for school, just get a chromebook, then build yourself a pc.

    I'll see what I can do.

    400 isn't going to get you as much for performance and gaming as a desktop would. You could get a mid-tier PC but 400 for laptop will probably get you something low.

    Yea, looked at Chromebooks in the UK, new ones are 150 euros and above. >.<

    Either he's going to have to suffice with a low end laptop, or up his budget so I can put together a decent PC for him. Even better if he didn't need the Chromebook, then I could put the entire budget into the PC, which would be enough to play a lot of titles at above 60 FPS at medium or low settings.

    I don't even know if he's using this for school. I'm just assuming it. He needs to give more details.

    @Dario_Darioso , give us more details.

    Will you be moving it around a lot?

    Do you NEED a laptop?

    What kind of games will you be playing?

    You might want to bump up your budget. Unless you can move a PC around.

    A laptop gets very expensive. In fact, a desktop is way cheaper and more powerful. You could probably get a 200€ laptop and get the same performance from a 100€ desktop.

    Again, if you want to play good games at good FPS, you will need to bump up your budget.

    You could also get a laptop just for work (not for games) and build a desktop for home, but you should bump up the budget to do that, as well.
