Please help me buy a laptop. I am looking in the $700 range (after discounts, sales, etc). Of course, less expensive is better. I am not into gaming or do any video editing. I just use a laptop for web surfing, word processing, streaming movies & TV, Skype, iTunes, and basic things like these. I am hoping for at least an i5 processor, 500GB storage (a hybrid SSD drive would be great!!), and 8GB memory if possible. A 15.6” screen is mandatory.
An important note: I WAS very seriously considering a Lenovo Z50 (great specs, including i5 processor, 8GB RAM, 500GB hybrid SSD) until I actually saw the laptop. I have never seen a cheaper keyboard ever, and I just did not want to buy something that looked and felt so cheap and flimsy despite the great specs.
Please do not recommend an Apple. I know some people love them, but if you recommend one you’re just wasting your time J
Thank you for any help in narrowing my search!
