first you should buy the best you can afford, thats the number 1 and yes I see you have mentioned €500 so that's a decent amount, you need a good
processor bigger is better, a good sized hard drive not less than 100gbs and not less than 3gb memory, a very good graphics card preferably not fixed
to motherboard, (as in you cant take it off) this way you can upgrade the graphics card when you have some more money saved. like everything you get
what you pay for, but if you have some upgrade options i.e. the graphics thats always good. as for anti virus dont turn down a brand just because they
package mcafee or any other software you don't like, it makes no difference if they package a bag of tomatoes with it, you dont have to use them. if
they provide mcafee that's no problem for you to remove it, and download something like avg antivirus, there is a free version for home use but not
free for commercial use, that should suit you as you stated what you wanted to use your laptop for in your post.
anything on your computer you can remove np, even the operating system if you so wish, its not difficult to do, but if you are in any doubt get a
friend or dealer to set up your preferred software,
wish you luck but do go to a reputable dealer if you are not too savvy on pc's.....
