I'd like to buy my boyfriend a laptop for his birthday/Christmas. At the moment he has a (very old) Dell laptop, a netbook and a newly built PC, which is apparently 'the sh*t!'
He's selling the netbook to get some money towards a new laptop but I know he won't have enough to buy the best model, and he's just bought a house so the money could probably be better spent on that.
I'd basically just like to get him something that he can use for a very long time. He's an IT tech and really knows his stuff, so only the best will do
But he needs it to look smart too. We looked at the Dell alienware and it's not really suitable because it really does look like a gaming laptop (I know it is!)
I know he was looking at the Dell xps models. He liked one of the ones with the i7 processor but said he would drop to an i5 because of the price difference. I'd rather just get him one with an i7 if that's what he wants. I have about £1000 to spend, can anyone help me choose something please or give some advice?
