hi, my dad needs to buy a laptop for his new business, he has a budget of around £350 which really isn't much at all but he doesn't need anything incredibly fancy just something that will be fast and reliable. I don't really know much about laptops so I was wondering if I could get some help, he needs to buy it from a legitimate shop/store so he can get a receipt due to it being for his business and he gets money back if he has a receipt so he cant buy ones from websites like ebay.

anyway these are the two he is currently looking at could you please tell me which is better or suggest a different laptop that is in the same kind of price range.
thanks in advance

here are the ones he is looking at
1)
acer aspire e1570 laptop
Processor - intel core i3-3217U 1.8GHz (dual core) 3mb cache
Ram - 8 GB DDR3
Hard Drive - 1TB

2)
Packard Bell EasyNote TE69KB
Processor - AMD A4-5000M APU 1.5GHz (quad core) 2mb cache
Ram - 8GB DDR3
Hard Drive - 1TB

I am considering giving him the extra £50 to get this but if you know of any better laptops please say

HP Pavilion 15-n096ea
Processor - intel core i5-4200U 1.6GHz (Dual Core) 3Mb cache
Ram - 8GB DDR3L
Hard Drive - 1TB

If it's just for daily use and nothing too intense then 1 should be fine,but if he imagines himself doing more multi-tasking then 2 would be the better option with more cores.

Number 1 should be fine.

I'd get number 2, it has a better integrated GPU (Or APU Whatever) and normally you should not really need a lot of CPU juice.

I think that one is the better option. The cpu, although dual core, is slightly more power full than the a4. I like the i5 and think it might be worth it.
