That aldi one... 32gb storage... that will be emmc, small and slow as anything to boot. Intel atom, also slow as anything. 768p screen, pretty low when you have tables and monitors open at the same time. Avoid. It'll suck balls.

For the cheap end, spend similar money on something like this: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/E6230-Dell-i ... 2824581856 screen is still low res by my standard, but the $ go up sharply for 1080p, but the processor is good and its a proper ssd.

For the good stuff start with this or similar.. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Dell-Latitud ... 2841476708 Its the cheapest 8gb ssd 1080p that looks pretty solid I can find at the moment. Had to add 1080p to the search and pick search in body, because hardly anyone puts the screen res in the title for some reason.

The one Jenko linked is OK. 768p screen=ok, 500gb HDD=decent size, way slower than SSD. 8gb ram=good. Intel SOC is a pretty mediocre CPU. But its pretty good bang for buck for a new machine - you likely wouldnt get better at that price new.

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad Ultrabook that I use for work, has a core I5 processor runs windows 10 (came with 8) i think its an SSD not sure on size.
Its more than capable by the sounds of it but I haven't decided if I want to dual purpose it or not.

I also have an old Toshiba running Winxp but it has a buggered battery and is mighty slow to do anything.

Ill keep my eye out for something pretty recent and see what pops up.
