Hey guys my name is eric and I am just trying to get back into computers. I haven't built a pc for maybe 2-3 years and I feel I have yet again lost touch with what is good now a days. Basically I have googled a lot and tried like 3-4 websites for computers and I think I have come to a point to two lap tops I think would be fine for me.
Both I can get on amazon:
Acer Aspire E5-575G-53VG 15.6-Inch Full HD Laptop (Intel Core i5, NVIDIA 940MX, 8GB DDR4, 256GB SSD, Windows 10) for 550 plus tax.
Now I am not a acer fan but this computer has a lot of reviews and averages 4 stars on amazon so I figure its not too shabby. It has a bit of a slower graphics card with only ddr4 2 gb memory but it has the 256 ssd. The other draw back is its only a i5 which only has 2 cores 4 threads if my research is right. I think this price is decent for what it offers but I also have this dell I think I really like.
Dell Inspiron i7559-2512BLK 15.6 Inch FHD Laptop (6th Generation Intel Core i7, 8 GB RAM, 1 TB HDD + 8 GB SSD) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M for 800 + tax
It has a better graphics card and seems to have a much faster cpu and offers 4 gb of ddr5 dedicated memory. The i7 offers 4 cores 8 threads but I don't know if I like the 8gb + 1 tb hdd combo. I am not sure how that really works but I could always just upgrade. This laptop is 250 dollars more but is it worth the 250? I want to obviously maybe invest more to be more up to date so the laptop would 'last' longer as far as computer upgrades go.
Please tell me what you guys think. I really am tired of having my desktop as it is really not accomidating anymore.
Thanks in advance
