    Budget i5 laptop that can take 8GB RAM

    Can anyone here recommend a decent laptop models to look for on ebay around the £150 mark (refurbished)?
    Something not too ancient, 2nd generation i5.

    Personally I'd go for a Thinkpad. I've used one for as long as I can remember laptops being around and love the solid feel and the finish of them. Current one is 5 odd years old and bar put and SSD drive in it I've not had a hiccup. Bit heavy but guess anything that age is going to be.

    Plenty in your range on eBay

      I've had one for 3 years, chunky, but as strong as feck.
      The Mrs has had a couple as well, we really rate them.

        I bought a fleabay i5 X230 (gen 3 i5) earlier this year as a replacement for a cheap laptop that died (screen connector broke). Put in a cheap Sandisk SSD and it's flying.
