Help with buying a laptop

Trying to do a bit of research on laptops as I desparately need to replace my old failing machine

been doing a bit of checking online and spotted a few possible options
browsing PC World, John Lewis, Dell direct etc
but been made a bit nervous by some pretty crappy customer reviews

is there anything I should be looking out for or avoiding

I have a half decent budget, looking for a larger screen, min 1TB storage , min 8GB ram
and a DVD/CD drive

Cheers

Not sure of buget but u can't beat a Mac Pro
From Apple
More expensive but no need for protection going on line as all built in works but different from Windows takes wee bit time to get use too but great machine

I'd second apple if you can afford it (unless you're a gamer). You'll never look back.

Secondly, if you are going to be mobile with it, consider dumping an internal dvd drive - lightness without it wins out every time.

Lastly, buy from John Lewis as the extra years warranty is well worth it.

I'll third apple.

If you need a dvd drive, buy an external one for £25.

I've recently had to start using a windows machine at work after ten years. It's doing my head in. How hard is it to have two excel spreadsheets open at once.

:hmmm no that hard, I used to work off of 5 at the same time in my old job.

I got a high-end Dell XPS recently and am really happy with it. MacBook Air size (actually smaller frame but comparable), high spec, touch screen. Little to fault it so far.

I've never found that to be a problem, I've done it daily for years on various Windows OSs.
