aren't the poorest, underpowered and cheap laptops around 500
dollars in the states? I definately wouldn't get anything below an
i5, and would try to get the latest eighth gen processor, which
has 4 cores instead of 2.

It's not necessarily how many hours a day you use it but how
you use it. You don't want to get a cheap bottom of the line
laptop, but for a lot of users, a roughly five hundred dollar
laptop, perhaps cheaper if it's on sale, will serve. You
might want to see which are the most reliable laptops. I
don't follow this, but I have seen surveys, which may be done
every year, I'm not sure, with some information about this.
and companies may put out a model that holds up well and
another that doesn't. So I wouldn't assume that if one model
is good from a certain company, that they all are.
I didn't look at the web site to
see the price nor did I look at the specifications yet, but
what is everything and what is using it hard?

It is expensive, but it has everything I need. Also, I've been
research and most really good laptops seem to be around that price
point. I'm going to be using it hard every day, so I need
can handle that and won't have problems.
