What would you use it for and what do you currently need your laptop for?  If it's just for gaming, 0 productivity, then you could get a low-end 1080p system, but you wouldn't get 600 quid for it.


I might not know what I'm talking about but I'm gonna say it anyways

 

Try using the PSU Tier List!

games, productivity.. 

 

Just keep the laptop.  Save up money if you want a pc, because selling a used £630 laptop won't get you much more than low budget 1080p gaming.

also i do not have any experience with building desktops, id like pre-built

You won't be able to make any gains then. the only reasonable way to get a performance increas is to sell your laptop then buy PC parts and build it yourself

Yeah not happening at that price range.  You get ripped off for anything under $1000/£800

Well then that sucks

Building isn't something that requires that much experience. You can watch some videos and get a really good idea of what to do.

I don't recommend trying to do a case mod if you can't even build using individual parts.

 

I also don't recommend that prebuilt, doesn't look great

If your budget is that high, why would you try to settle for reusing your laptop parts?
