Help buying a Laptop


Nov 7, 2016
Clueless when it comes to buying a laptop so thought I'd ask on here if anyone could help me out, I only have a small budget, so would like to get the most for my money. I bought a laptop a while ago and its really slow and freezes regularly. I dont think it was made for the things I like to do i.e Photoshop.
