Looking for a new laptop. Need some opinions.
Ok. My laptop took a spill off of the desk and is not repairable. Took it for a diagnostic and it just can't be fixed. It's an older computer (circa 2009) and they don't have a source for parts. Insurance is paying me to replace it (less depreciation and deductible, of course), so I will not be getting as much as I had hoped. Still, I'm getting a new computer for about $300 less than it would cost me otherwise. Still, I'm not going to buy another $1k laptop. I'm looking to keep it at $500 or less (the wife wants a new Macbook, so I'm limiting my budget to help with that).
I'm looking at a few computers and wanted to see what others opinions were on the topic. Is there a laptop that you like around that price range? I've found two in particular that have piqued my interest. Both are Dell Inspirons. One is a touchscreen with 4GB of RAM, the other is a non-touchscreen with 6GB of RAM. I'm wondering if those computer gurus here on FR4x4 think that I could get away with the 4GB touchscreen, of if you think I should go with the 6GB.
Primary use is for school, but I do like games on occasion. I'll be out of state for quite a while in a couple of months, so I may play more games then because I will be away from my family and will have some time to do so.Any help is greatly appreciated.
