Oh god.  I knew it was only a matter of time before montage parodies made it into this thread.

 

So going to a cheap community college+getting it paid for by atheletics+having baller rich dead grandparent's 529 = extra monies for free laptop.  I really don't know what I want other than a 1080p screen smaller than 15 inches and hopefully sub $600?  Any recommendations?  Is that even reasonable?

I'm no laptop or even desktop genius, but I can say from experience that any sub-$1000 laptop you buy in a store is going to be full of bullshiznit marketing and not full of value or performance. If you want it to be <$600, I'd definitely recommend buying online.


Is this really the first one in over 400 pages? I'm privileged. :p

Yeah I don't need beefy graphics or anything like that exactly.  I'd absolutely be up for buying it online, where ever it'd be cheapest.  I know literally nothing about laptops - sort of the way I know nothing about iems.

What are you gonna use the lappy for?

Thread Starter 

Buying an HP online from Newegg isn't going to be much different in terms of software from one from BestBuy..... granted sometimes Bestbuy gives you additional software, but those are optional disks you can install or pay GeekSquad to do their...magic. 

 

 

 

Lots of good deals in $600 and sub $1000 range for laptops of course. 

 

You may not need beefy graphics but will you be playing games on it?

post #6369 of 6598
No, no gaming on it. Mostly surfing, reading, videos and MS office stuff. Photoshop and maybe some light arcgis eventually.

A sub-$600 1080p laptop would be pretty hard to get. Most laptops of that price range and size are still stuck on the many years old 1366x768 resolution. My last 1080p Windows laptop was $1,119, and I got it solely for the 1080p display.

Yeah I don't really know the budget that the savings plan has on electronics/supplies, have yet to contact them about this.  Found this on new egg in 5 minutes: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834314533

 

It's got that numerical pad which is probably my second biggest requirement lol.  1TB hdd is so overkill, literally 2x as much space as my desktop has (finished building when floods put hdds through the roof)

Seems to have the same processors as this one for a lot less: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834317607

Can't say I'd care too much for touch screen right now, although I haven't ever tried it in windows 8.

 

I'm so incompetent when it comes to laptops compared to desktops :D

That sounds about good for ling. A good i3 is good enough for all those things.

Hey ling? Do you NEED a 1080p display?

post #6375 of 6598
I'd prefer one for sure, especially if it's a 15.6" What's wrong with those i5 laptops? Too stronk for the little batteries?
