Hello, everybody! Let me begin by saying that I just joined these forums and this is going to be my first post, so I hope it is being posted in the correct category. Thank you for taking the time to check out my post!
Well, as the title says, I am in the market for a new laptop which I plan on buying in the next few days (on Wednesday, to be precise) but I don't know much about processors and other general specs, so I'd like to ask for opinions on the machine that has my eye at this moment.
Here is a link to the laptop: https://www.aarons.com/p-484-173-phenom-x2-laptop.aspx
In case you don't trust the link, or don't feel obligated to follow the provided link, I will post a few of the specs below:
17.3" HP Phenom X2
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Premium AMD Phenom II Dual-Core Mobile Processor
LED Display; ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 Graphics w/ 128MB Display
Blu-Ray Compatible w/ Beats Audio
In asking for opinions, obviously you'll be curious of what I plan on doing on this machine, so I'll tell you about that below:
Obviously I'll be using this laptop for the basic web surfing for this, including social sites, email, a bit of video watching (YouTube and Netflix), etc.
I like to write so I plan on typing up quite a few documents over the course of having this laptop. I'll be typing small documents in Microsoft Works and Notepad, including poetry and short stories as well as some school stuff.
I'll be storing quite a bit of multimedia files, including photos, music, and videos, probably about 10GB in total.
I will be playing some really basic games. The heaviest game I'll be playing is Minecraft. Besides that, a few emulators (GBA and DS, mostly).
I posted this thread in hopes of getting some useful feedback on this laptop since I'm sure most of you are pretty tech-savvy when it comes to computer specs. Thank you for taking your time to read this post.
