I’ll be using this for note taking on google sheets and i’ll be using the touch screen feature for anki flashcards
I really just need ‘fast enough’ as well as long term durability.
Also whilst it’ll be touch screen, i’d still like it to be a traditional laptop style (i.e: not detachable)
Thanks a lot
I think I’d ideally like a new laptop- as i’m planning on using it for the first few years of uni as well (aspiring for med school)
I’ve been interested by the HP Pavilion 15, and i think it’s met all my desires but apparently Pavilions are notorious for having poor builds despite the specs, according to some friends. Is this true?
I’ve also looked at the Huawei Matebook D15 2020 and have been interested by it too, despite no touch screen, but i believe that ill be missing out from some of its best features as I don’t have huawei phone/ecosystem.
Another couple i’ve been interested are:
Dell Inspiron 14 5000
acer aspire 5 a514-52
Apologies for the long message and thank you very much for your help, advice and wisdom!
I think i’ve made my decision:
Only thing that confuses me is that people are describing acer laptops as gaming laptops. Do you think Acer is reliable enough?
