    Hi guys i,m thinking of buying a new laptop and want some advice if i can please?

    would like one with keyboard backlighting this time as i do tend to use my lappy alot at night

    have been looking at this one Dell Inspiron 17R-5720 its got quick good spec and uses the i5 pro

    any of you guys recommend a good lappy with keyboard backlighting for around the £500 mark??

    oh yeh it has to be 17" screen ;)

    yeah the Dell is nice option few manufactures bother with 17inch screens and they have got better over the last few years because of some probs with earlier models, and they do have a good after service so it would be my choice too.

    I know HP Pavillion's are a good for price and spec. I was a PC world recently and saw one with an LED backlight 17' LCD, 750GB HDD and 6GB RAM for £550.

    Blue screen is most likely software issue. Maybe it just needs a clean install with updated drivers.
