You're thinking of tablets with a keyboard connected. I'd highly recommend steering clear of those. Unnecessary and you can get more for the same amount of money. Even a low tier Dell has a TB of space. For instance, this Lenovo IdeaPad has Windows 10, 1TB of space and enough power to run a browser and some programs for under $400.Welsh Halfwit wrote:What do you need it for? If it's just the internet and some light programming, you only need a cheap one. If you're gaming or program intensive, you'll need to go higher. Also be aware of the ones that say they have 32gb storage. It sounds a lot. But that's INCLUDING the Operating system and all the drivers. you could well end up with 5gb of memory or less on the computer and you may have to buy cloud storage for the rest. Older Windows 10, 8.1 and 7's all have bigger hard drives built in.
That's also fairly inaccurate. With the release of nVidias newest series of graphics cards they did away with the whole 'mobile' platform. Prices have actually gone down quite a bit.Buster wrote:if you're on a budget, Look for a model thats a year or two out of date, it's specs wont be ideal but will still be reasonable compared to it's current version, and it'll cost you half as much. also, laptops should NOT be used for things that require a lot of rendering and physics calculation, (3d modeling programs, higher end AAA games) as they're often too small to house dedicated supplemental computation hardware or adequate cooling systems. The ones that aren't cost $2-4k, for hardware that would have been $1-2k had you just ordered desktop parts and put it together yourself, because miniaturization without loss of function is expensive.
If you're on a budget stick to what you can afford. You can get a terabyte of space for under $500 if you stick with lower end Dells and Lenovos.
If you've got the cash to spare, you can get a capable gaming laptop for under $1300 if you get a mid tier Asus, MSi or another company like Gigabyte or CyberPowerPC. Capable meaning, an i7, a GTX 1060 and enough space for larger games.
An example would be the Asus FX502VM which has an i7, a GTX 1060, a 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD for $1120.
