Any suggestions for a laptop / pc that is decently fast that doesn't freeze like everytime you load a website?

Also I need to create a website for a member of my family's business aka to sell products. Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated

Anything over a few hundred should be more than capable of surfing the web and building websites using online web builders such as wix, shopify, weebly, squarespace etc. I don't have any recommendations for laptops other than the LENOVO IdeaPad S340 14" which I bought for college and ran Premiere Pro and even some less demanding games such as Black Ops 2 just fine. I believe I paid around £300 at the time so I would look for something with similar specs in the £200-£300 price range.

As for a PC, I don't know of any low-end workstations since I mainly focus on components that are aimed towards gamers etc. I would not spend any more than a few hundred though if all you want to do is surf the web and make websites since most newer systems can handle that with ease. You could even go for a Chromebook if you wanted since they are designed for surfing the web at an affordable price.

This sounds like you don't have experience with e-commerce.

Your best bet is to use a service like Shopify.
You can create a website and get all the shop side built in for a small monthly payment. (£25/month)
