My budget for the new computer is: cheaper is better but depends on recommendations, absolute max is 1400$ / 1000£
What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? University, writing, browsing, Facebook, light entertainment (some YouTube, small games, some movies)
What software do you intend on using on the computer? Microsoft office or similar. Vlc, light games. Basic stuff mostly
Do you play games? If so, what type of games? I do but I have a gaming laptop and a desktop for that so only browser games and light games (big fish games kind of games and such)
Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? I generally forget to close programs so have a lot open. I very often have many tabs open in my browser
Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? No. I have about 20-30gb of pictures and music in all and I have most storaged elsewhere
Will you be overclocking? No
Location for online shopping/shipment/prices? Denmark (generally quite a bit more expensive than USA and such)
How many monitors are you planning to use? Just the laptop
Do you need peripherals? OS? No
Any particular reason why you are upgrading?
My gaming laptop is far too heavy/big and can barely handle 2-2,5 hours of light use before needing recharging.
I need a very light computer that can keep battery for the entire day at university (at least 6 hours). It should either be useable all 5-6 years of university or cost no more than 700$ /500£ so I can buy a replacement later.
Please feel free to ask any questions if I have left out something.
