Almost every business will plump for a budget Windows laptop and they are often right to do so. For a little over £300 you can pick up a perfectly serviceable, no-frills notebook that will run all Windows software and connect to the web.
Basically, it will do what you need it to do, without looking sexy. Potential down sides include weight and heft, while cheap laptops don't tend to have great battery life.
If you are going to go for a budget Windows laptop, there are many options. The HP 250 G4 is one of the best-value, low-cost laptops out there and for just over £300, you get 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD storage, Intel Core i3-5005U dual core processor.
There are lots of options at the higher end too. The Dell XP 15 (around £1,350) is an excellent laptop with a superb screen resolution, good battery power and 32GB of RAM.
Microsoft has also released its own Surface Laptop, which depending on the model, could set you back anywhere from £979 to £2,149. Its cheapest model houses the Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of SSD, while its top end laptop comes with the Intel Core i7, 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD.
