So I done research on this and I found a great deal for a laptop, which was a laptop with a 960m and an i7 for only £400, but then it got cancelled a few days after ordering so I am for a search of a new one,

I want them to buy a laptop with 8 gig of ram, an average-low GPU, and a CPU similar to their current one (i5 3317U) and a screen that is 15 inch or bigger. They don't mind if the laptop is used as long as it is in a decent condition and they prefer it to be £600 or lower (preferably under 600).

 

PS: sound quality,keyboard and touchpad and quality doesn't matter.

thanks for the help, but this has onboard graphics from what I can see (please repair me if I am wrong)

Yes. But that iGPU is more powerful than a 930M and unless you want to game, it's more than enough

I'd avoid it honestly. If it doesn't have warranty then I wouldn't spend that kind of money on hardware you won't need.

Which may die within a week...

His parents don't need a *70M GPU for FTL... - it's just large, heavy and will have shit battery life.
