linkie Intel Core i3, 4GB ram, 1TB Hd i know its not a really powerful computer but its alright for the price. at least u get an intel core i3. i see on the website its on sale
if i were to need a laptop now, itd be for basic use. id get this one. i bought the cheapest laptop at the time (weeks ago) with a slower cpu and less hd space cuz i didnt really need anything supergreat. the specs on the $229.99 hp15-ba009dx then were enough for me. then, i bought a second lappie for $299.99: HP 250 g5 laptop with intel core i3, 8gb ram, 1tb hd with 802.11ac wireless networking and 10/100/1000 wired networking. i felt like beating myself over the head for getting the cheapest one then with older tech inside but i didnt know to check out the wifi tech and wired networking then and look for possibly more ram in the computer then. now i know better
anyway, this Lenovo is the one id get if i were to need one now.
does anyone know if theres a cheaper laptop now thats new and with a sata drive? the ssd drive laptops are so expensive and have limited hd capacity, right?
Intel CPU model U is slower than model M and much slower than model HQ. In other words, i3-6100U is the lowest (cheapest) model of the 6th generation of Intel CPU. However, with only for business use, this is not a big problem. Nevertheless, if anyone intends to use EGPU (external GPU by EXP GDC dock) for gaming/graphic work later, this is not the laptop for you. *Reason: Lenovo uses proprietary NGFF (Key-E) socket for its network slot (regularly PCI-E), and there is no other adapter in the market to fit in that socket, just so you know.
The screen is really the only downer on this...dead standard 1366x768 puts it kinda in kids and grandma territory for me. Despite the "u" series i3 chip it actually is pretty fast, especially for the cost. Only 1 slot of RAM, an upgrade to 16 GB is about $100 right now for those that are curious.
