Got into the rewards store and picked the 14 inch version and did some customisations, signed up to the newsletter but the coupon code isn't working for me when I apply it to the basket.

I am looking for recommendations for a laptop that would meet a teachers need, especially given the fact teaching will be done remotely in the coming months. Be able to use video conferencing software smoothly.

Looking for a new laptop that can be used for occasional gaming with a budget of between €600 - €1,000

The sort of spec games would be

Minimum:
Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
OS: Windows 10/8.1/7 64-bit
Processor: Core i3-2100 3.10 GHz
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: Geforce GTX 650 Ti
Storage: 25 GB available space
Sound Card: Onboard

Recommended:
Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
OS: Windows 10/8.1/7 64-bit
Processor: AMD FX-8320 8-Core
Memory: 16 GB RAM
Graphics: Radeon R7 370
Storage: 25 GB available space
Sound Card: Onboard

I've been told to get i5 or AMD Ryzen 7, dedicated graphics card with 4gb ram and 16gb ram (this pushes the price up so wondering if I'd get away with 8gb?)

Really appreciate some help as I've no idea what to look for.

Thanks

Avoid a laptop if you want a gaming machine, it reduces the lifespan of the laptop and removes the ability to upgrade components in the future. For that budget you can get a pretty decent desktop and peripherals. The members over on this board are extremely knowledgeable and helpful:

To the above post regarding UPS delivery, I've personally found them to be the worst available.

If they want to use it for occasional gaming, then they probably need a new laptop but would like the added benefit of being able to play a game every now and then.

decent option for 700 £. easy to add ram later and more storage if required.

or if you want to get a more powerful gpu (more future proofed in terms of playing future games for longer) and probably better all around unit for £ 900 (use parcel motel, addresspal etc). sterling low at the moment so not a bad time to buy

Ordered one of these two weeks ago. Delivery is now estimated to be the end of July. So about 6 weeks vs the 2 to 3 weeks suggested when ordering - probably due to covid 19.
Just something to factor in if you are in a rush.
