  24. Clem R on February 23, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    Hey josh, i have been searching for a laptop for almost 2 months and i still didn’t found an ideal laptop. If you can, i would really appriciate your help. What i need is a 15 inch laptop for university that is lightweight, and that i can also use for indie game develping (with unity or gamemaker studio). My most desired options for now are the lenovo legion 5 15, and the lenovo ideapad 5 15 (especialy for their keybords), but one of them is too bulky with a graphical power that i dont really need (since i play AAA on consles), while the other one has a bad display that i can’t tollerate (i could buy an external monitor, but currently i dont have enough space for it). I would be happy if you raccomend me a laptop like the ideapad 5 15 but with a better display, 16 gb ram, with POSSIBLY an i7 or ryzen 7, and that it can also do some CASUAL gaming; i also don’t want to spend too much so i wont buy anything over 1500€. If you don’t know any laptop like this, then tell me what i should do. Thank you

    What is your say on a refurbished Dell Latitude 12 7275 for university activities. Mind you, this is not for the computer science or engineering students. Just management sciences.

    So simple



  36. Elin Sundström on February 23, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    Is there any difference between Asus VivioBook s14/15 14 inch and Asus Vivobook s14/15 15 inch except the screen size, the nits (400 and 200) and a number pad? Looks like both have an AMD Ryzen 4700U, 512 SSD and 16 GB ram. I am no expert at computers and got an 14 inch and my eyes and head hurts, I use fl studio and photoshop. 150% screen "size" is recommended in the settings, but I have to have 125% to be able to see all plug-ins in fl studio. Everything is so small. I am also studying economics at uni. The 14 inch is 1,4 kg and the 15 inch is 1,8 kg. I have the possibility to change the computer for 25 days and I am torn.

  46. Ilyas Schito on February 23, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    These videos pulled me out of the black hole of trying to find a fairly priced laptop. Finally got myself a lenovo ideapad 15 with a ryzen 4700, 16gb ram and 512 ssd for about 800 USD. Thanks again!



  47. Donna Bosilkovski on February 23, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    Hi Josh. I am hoping you could please recommend me a new laptop. I’m in Australia, would like a 15" i7 good display and sound and up to $2000 AUD if this is even possible please? For home use only, so web browsing, youtube, and word docs for work. I have been to stores but they promote the brands they sell (understandably so). I want something futureproof as I am a "mature lady" and this will be my last purchase… hopefully. Thank you in advance and have a great day. Donna



  48. Andrés Márquez on February 23, 2021 at 10:25 pm
