Take my advice and go to El Corte De Inglis in Elche and buy one there their after sales service is the very best and my choice would be HP

If you want to buy an almost new one I can offer you a choice PM me if interested

I would go to media markt or Corte or millar , and buy a new laptop for about 350.

All in ones are just a big version of a laptop without the portability and are over priced and over specced.

Just remember the days of swapping drives and ram easily are gone, make sure you buy what you need, as upgrades on a lot of stuff is very troublesome these days. I bought a hp laptop recently and wanted to throw my old ssd drive in, no longer possible without the use of half a dozen guitar plecs and the patience of a saint and some weird adaptor.

Go to the computer shop at San Luis. Near the chicken shack bar. Tell him what you want and why.
He has some computers with little towers and buy a kindle fire from a amazon. Sorted.

Hi there,

Are you plugging your printer in to the socket on your android tablet ? Or are you talking about a computer?

Freddo, you are behind the times mate, :lol: I own a brand new hp laptop, the rear shell has a dozen screws which once removed require guitar plecs to force the shell apart, bit by bit, very precarious, there are no removable panels like back in the olden days to allow access to the hard drive and the ram.

After opening this laptop up, I discovered it has a ssd, not a 2.5 inch unit but a circuit board style hard drive, I can’t plug a normal drive in like you would think, not all machines are the same. Buyer beware.

Personally i'd take your sons advice and buy a MAC - i've got one for work and it's never been turned off in 2 years - rock solid. Cheap, not - but a very good and decent sized screen. Of all of the Apple products, the MAC is the most reasonable (by Apple standards!).

Kev's right - all in ones, generally are a little more costly then the separates equivalent (tower + monitor), and they usually have a worse spec for the money, than the separates equivalent.
Can a tablet do proper computer work? spreadsheets or databases? Essential for business.
It can, i've got all the MS software on an ipad and do use it for database entry from time to time - but ultimately slower in use for this than a computer - but browsing the web, is quicker...

If watching your pennies, a separate tower / monitor will give you best value / performance - you may even be able to use your existing monitor.

Nowadays, with the power and speed available in reasonably inexpensive laptops, why not use the option of a laptop plus a plug and play monitor, and a wireless keyboard and mouse.

You then have the best of all worlds; the laptop will become a "tower" at home (or wherever), and a portable device elsewhere. It's what I have been doing for the last 15 years or so.

Nothing wrong with a good spec laptop. It will do all you want and more especially if you're used to an ' old tower'... and there's no need for seperate monitors or keyboards, although a wireless mouse is always a good idea if you don't like touchpads.

Not everyone wants to walk round carrying Ipads.

I have a Lenovo laptop and I think they are excellent.

Pop into Milars or Mediamarkt, Marilyn, they'll sort you out. :D
