    Looking for a laptop for home use, internet browsing, photo storage, word, excel and limited kids netflix viewing. I would also like to make zoom calls etc. Budget €500 max. I have one4all vouchers i would like to use up so if anyone can recommend a laptop from currys that would be great.
    Do i have to purchase microsoft office as sn additional extra?

    nothing even 1/2 reasonable at currys until this on offer at €569

    if you want ms office you'll need to subscribe to office 365 or buy an old-style licence somewhere

    otherwise there are free office alternatives like Libreoffice

    DID takes the vouchers. If you know anyone with a student leapcard, they get 10 percent off. Students also get free MS office

    DID usually amongst the worst value for laptops in Ireland though and that's saying something.
