School Laptop

Recommended Posts

I recommend ASUS, own 3 of their laptops; all solid and (for me) easy to repair. 

if you are just doing school stuff and not worried about playing any games at Ultra High standards, any 500 buck laptop will do.  a five year gap means even a "base model" today is gonna be far more powerful.

Little update on this. Purchased a refurb Dell 15  5000 series from my schools book supplier. Thus far I like it. Only thing I don't like is the speakers being mounted on the bottom. Having HPs I've been used to having them on top. On the upside it has Blutooth I am very tempted to invest in some wireless buds with a mic for school projects.

The speakers (Banger&Olufsen) on my Asus Zenbook Pro are garbage.  This is a "premium notebook." 

 

I bought it used and got a pretty good deal on it, and things started great.  I played overwatch and Destiny 2 with about medium settings no issues.  Now it lags if i fullscreen a movie/youtube video.  Pretty sure its a driver issue, but laptop drivers are a mess.
