Help Needed!

Assalam Alaykum,

I need to purchase a laptop in the next few days and would like to take some advice from those who know a bit more about laptops and PCs than I do.  I need a laptop to surf the internet, update my blogs, attend live classes @Shariah Program using Paltalk and a bit of internet banking from time to time.  Currently I am eyeing up 2 options:

1, Asus UL20A – £400
2, Samsung X120 – £350

Can you please advise on whether these are good buys for my needs or whether or not I should look at something for around the same price.  If you know someone who is computer aware than would you point them towards this post and ask them to help a brother in need out.
