Hey everyone,
I would like to buy a laptop that can easily handle the fact I usually open up 30 windows/tabs (I'm not exaggerating) simultaneously, without "stealing" some precious time from me (which is not really fulfilled by my 4.5 years old Asus K53E, Intel Core i3-2330M CPU 2.20GHz, 4GB RAM). I also need it to cost 800$ or less. I wondered if you can tell me what do you think about the following computer of HP ( HP 250 G5, Z2Y31ES):
Intel Core i7-6500 3.1GHz
8 GB DDR4-2133 Mhz Turbo Ram
256 GB SuperSpeed M.2 SSD
Intel HD Graphics DirectX® 12
15,6" Full-HD Display, LED-Backlight
Wireless Lan AC, Gigabit Lan, Bluetooth
USB 3.0, USB 2.0, DTS Studio-Sound

I would appreciate any honest opinion! happy.gif

:confused: There's no comparison. An i7-6500U will stomp all over an i3-2330M.

That computer should be fine. The CPU is pretty good and 8 GB of RAM is hard to max out under ordinary use anyway.

Well, the i3-2330M is my current computer, but the main question is if the i7 I talked about is a good computer...

Between the SSD and the 8GB of RAM you should be covered.

 

What is most likely bogging down your current machine is 4GB of RAM and a mechanical hard drive.  When your machine is out of RAM it writes to the hard drive.  If you're stressing the machine RAM then your hard drive is constantly in use.  I run 4GB of RAM on my work machine with three browser windows, Outlook, notepad, and OneNote open.
