    Laptop £600 maximum for streaming films, graphic design and photo editing

    I need a laptop to replace mine as it just died and I can't get replacement parts (plus it started running quite slow).

    I'm after a laptop preferably with an NVMe drive for Windows (256GB) and space for an internal 2.5 inch SSD (to transplant the existing drive for storage), with 8GB RAM, fingerprint reader and preferably a 15+ inch screen with a reasonable battery and num pad.

    I'm not fussed on the make if it comes with a decent guarantee (although some Lenovos are really ugly and square).

    Can anyone please provide recommendations? Thanks.

    I've very happy with my Huawei MateBook 13 AMD

    I know it's only a last gen Ryzen 3500 but the screen in my opinion is fantastic.
    It's also currently £20 under budget and comes with free true wireless earbuds and backpack
