    So I got a relative who asked me to look around for a laptop with the following charactheristics:
    -Price range: around 500 euros
    -For office work, surfing the internet and streaming movies mostly. That means no real gaming issues.
    -That can last a few years without getting too far behind technology.

    This is the first that grabbed my attention:


    ASUS X54C-SX303V

    - Intel Core i3-2350M at 2.3GHz
    - 4GB DDR3 1333MHz
    - HDD 750GB 5400 rpm
    - Webcam 0.3 Mpx
    - Display 15.6" LED Glare HD 1366x768
    - Intel HD Graphics 3000
    - Windows 7 Home Premium

    Not too shabby and is around 489 euros.

    The second one is form fujitsu, a brand I've barely seen:

    FUJITSU LIFEBOOK AH531

    - Intel Core i5 2450M / 2.5 GHz
    - Windows 7 Home Premium
    - 4 GB RAM
    - 500 GB HDD
    - 1.3 mpx webcam
    - 15.6" 1366 x 768 / HD
    - Intel HD Graphics 3000

    It's at 465 euros, a little bit more cheaper.


    So I know that brands aren't everything, and that a chunk of laptops fail after some time, but could anybody help me to decid which one is better?
    These too seem to fit the criteria :)

    I'd go with the ASUS. Bigger HDD.

    EDIT: This is my way of saying both will be absolutely fine for the specified needs, in a subtle way.

    Someone who doesn't plan on doing gaming or downloading a bunch of movies etc isn't in need of a big HDD...

    Both seem fine brand-wise, as for specs the second one has the better processor and that's one of the things that'll count for age.
