    I’ll be watching QVC today because computer TSVs put me to sleep :rotflmao:

    But, if you’re looking for a laptop – this one is 5.44 lbs. I find 3lbs laptops are suitable for walking around with, so anything over that is probably better for those driving :teehee:

     

    Here are some key specs:

    • Display: 17.3-inch diagonal, HD+ (1600 x 900), touchscreen BrightView panel
    • Processor: Intel Pentium Gold 6405U
    • Memory: 8 GB DDR4-2400 SDRAM (1 x 8 GB)
    • Storage: 512 GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD
    • Optical Drive: DVD-Writer
    • Operating System: Windows 10 Home

     

    I found this online regarding “Memory” –

    Random access memory, usually shortened to RAM or simply “memory,” is one of the most important parts of any computing device. Modern PCs, tablets, and phones typically have from 2GB up to 32GB, though some have even more. But how much RAM do you need, exactly?

    In a nutshell, here are some simple guidelines that apply to most PC devices.

    • 4GB: Low-end Chromebooks and some tablets come with 4GB of RAM, but it’s only worth considering if you’re on an extreme budget.
    • 8GB: Typically installed in entry-level notebooks. This is fine for basic Windows gaming at lower settings, but rapidly runs out of steam.
    • 16GB: Excellent for Windows and MacOS systems and also good for gaming, especially if it is fast RAM.
    • 32GB: This is the sweet spot for professionals. Gamers can enjoy a small performance improvement in some demanding games, too.
    • 64GB and more: For enthusiasts and purpose-built workstations only. Engineers, professional A/V editors, and similar types need to start here and go higher if needed.

     

    In terms of “Storage“, I found this online

    If you are a student or a regular user, you will not need huge space on your laptop. Instead, you can be good with 128 GB or maximum of 256GB of solid state drive. With this storage you can create your documents, send lots of emails and do regular gaming as well. However, this is not a gaming laptop, but you can use it for regular gaming only.

    Moreover, if you want to create a backup of your data like media files or lots of photos, you will need maximum of 512GB of sdd storage. So, any student can easily find out the targeted laptop with this storage.

     

    I like the onboard “DVD-Writer“! That lets you copy/save things to a DVD which is not that easy to find anymore!

    It looks like a nice light-duty laptop. Office 365 is a big program too. I’m not a big fan of its automatic updates, but there you go …
