I'm currently seeking for a laptop to fit my needs at college. There are no difficult programs I have to use then the laptop probably doesn't need to be high-end. I'm currently using really old HP but that just has become a pain to use on a daily basis. Basically what I need is a laptop for school which can handle Streaming and would look decent.
I was thinking about Chromebook Toshiba 2 myself because it looks nice and is simple, But I am not sure if it would be comfortable for me to download and edit office, .pdf and .odt documents
Laptop or Desktop?
My budget for the new computer is:
~300$ (400$ max)
What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)?
Mail, MS Office, PDF files, Netflix, Web browsing
What software do you intend on using on the computer?
Do you play games? If so, what type of games?
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'd like it run a stream while creating documents with some internet tabs open
Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?
10gb of music max
Will you be overclocking?
Location for online shopping/shipment/prices?
How many monitors are you planning to use?
Occasionally one 22" monitor
Do you need peripherals? OS?
Any particular reason why you are upgrading? startup takes ages, no backlight keyboard and alot of freezes
Thank you so much for your help
