So I've been thinking it over and I think in the next few months I might go ahead and start upgrading my portable devices and I wanted to see if you guys had some good suggestions as far as power for my buck.
So I'm going to cover 3 devices, please let me know in your response if I should just split these into different topics instead of one big post.
Anyways I was considering in November to upgrade to the new iPhone 6s/7 that will launch in September from my current Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
Purpose: I like the simplicity and the ease of finding various accessories and nearly any app will run on iPhones.
Then I was looking into upgrading my laptops -- First would be to replace my old Dell 17" mammoth which I may sell for extra cash.
This first replacement will be for learning more about cyber security (I am a cyber security major looking to get into Ethical Hacking and Pentesting) and Programming. Also this would probably be my main system I would use for more secure tasks such as online banking, online purchases, etc. It needs to be light, very portable, with a good battery life. I'm thinking between 13"-15.6" with an i5 or better and atleast 8 GB RAM and a 240-256 GB SSD. This system needs to last me for atleast 3+ years. I did some googling and many people suggest the old refurbished lenovo thinkpad 420s that can be had under $500. I was comparing these to the newer T450s thinkpads and I'm not sure which to go with or maybe even talking with puget systems for a custom build. Here is what I found:
Then lastly, probably leaning more towards a year or so from now, I want to replace my Macbook Pro with possible the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 (The new version at the time) for school and casual browsing on the go,
Let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions that may be better than this. Thanks!
