So I already had a thread asking which laptops work best with Linux Lite, but I was told just about everything will and to post here for help with something more specific. So here I am! My previous thread in a nutshell: I'll mostly be using my laptop for writing and research, occasionally photo/video editing, nothing professional or high-tech. Definitely no touchscreen, no warranties or customer support needed, preferably just something blank so I don't have to struggle through uninstalling Windows. I don't want anything used, but not something brand new either. Just fast and durable.
A 100GB SSD hard drive sounds good; I've read those withstand bumps and tumbles better because they have less moving parts, but I don't need much memory with most of my files just on flash drives. Thus at least 2 USB ports are a must, plus an SD card slot, a disk drive, a screen that lights up, and working speakers. Any other requirements....nope I think that's it, ideally a new but not-too-new blank laptop with graphics, audio, ports and disk drive, and an....adequate hard drive? I really have no idea if 100GB is a little or a lot. But that's why I'm here, to have people more technologically adept pick out my perfect laptop! And hopefully for under $500.
