Want a laptop for 300-500

  1. #1
    What should i get? I dont wanna go under 300 but 500 is my upper limit if its a good deal. Ideally more around 400. But mainly I want good bang for my buck ans something that'll last. Ideally I'd like to add more RAM and memory later on. Windows only. I snapped my chrome book in half because i hate chrome books so much.

    Looking for 8gb of RAM at least, and preferably a decentish sized SSD. I will be playing games on it but not much honestly. And nothing super intensive. I will need to do some video editing and photoshop stuff.

    Lolwut. My last 500 dollar laptop lasted 8 years. Chromebook is fucking shit. Can't do anything but go on the internet.

    Not true, ChromeOS is actually a really well designed OS in terms of internals and security. Newer Chromebooks have great integration with Linux containers so you can run most Linux apps and games as well as Android apps.

    That said, they're mostly only good if your main concern is price or security. Otherwise just look for some decent windows laptop on sale.

    You can, but it's not ideal. On a lot of Chromebooks you have to flash the firmware or at least turn on dev mode to install another OS. It can also be a bit of a pain to get the right drivers/everything set up as well as it would work in ChromeOS like screen rotation and whatnot.

    Depending on the model of Chromebook it's totally doable and might not be that bad, but at that point why not just buy a regular laptop?

    I had a chromebook and it was awful. So much i wanted to do but couldn't. I wouldn't ever want to own one again. It's like a circumcised computer

    well I have nothing to add, since you're looking for garbage.

    Pinebook pro line looks pretty cool but it's ARM, which is both why it's cool and why it won't cut it for plebes like you.

    IDK, just got some mid-range HP?

    Mac is for idiots. Same as iphones. You can get a much more powerful machine for the money with windows

    Windows is a brand of operating systems, not a hardware manufacturer you retarded beaner.

    Didnt say it was, dunce. Apple OS is propriety though and only available on mac and iPhone. And its shit. The machines are underpowered for the price and they're designed to break. Just an awful brand to buy. Its for people who want to look a certain way instead of people who want a good machine.

    Windows OS is the way to go. You will get more bang for your buck as long as you're not buying alienware or some shit.

    Linux is for gays who kiss each other on the mouth.

    Mhmmm. Been through this before. Name me any Apple product and I'll find a cheaper, equally powerful, and more reliable android or windows product.
