I've been exhaustively researching laptops and just ordered this:
A bit expensive but I had several requirements that were hard to find in a single laptop.
While researching, I found many great deals on slickdeals and reddit. If you're in the market, it seems like a great time to buy and no need to wait for black Friday.
Thanks for the tip. In your searching, did you happen to see a more budget-friendly option with the following?
15.6" Full HD Touchscreen
8 GB RAM
256 GB SSD
AMD Ryzen 5 3500U (Or Similar)
Loud (Volume) Speakers (Don't Have To Be Great Quality, Just Loud)
I saw those specs in a Gateway at Walmart and an HP at Office Depot for $250 to $300.
The HP seems better and cheaper.
Don't know about backlit keyboards and speaker volume though.
Re speaker volume, I use an extension on chrome to boost volume when needed.
Nice specs. Once you go SSD you never go back. Speed is great.
How much you wind up paying? $250?
Personally i prefer 16 ddr4. You can always upgrade cheaply. Unless they buried the slot behind the keyboard.
Actually the specs show 8ram Is sodered on and 8 ram upgradable. 2 slots
