Hello guys I'm going to buy a new Laptop/Notebook in the next week. I really don't know which I should get. This is my second post in /g/ so pls don't judge me if there's a rule I don't know.

Can you help me with my little problem? I would be very thankful for every help.

What I want to do:

- Watching Youtube/Netflix and so on
- Browsing the Web with several tabs
- Doing office work
- Eventually playing small video games (nothing like TW3 or Wildlands and so on...)

What I'd like to have:

- A convertible would be great! But it isn't necessary if it isn't possible
- It shouldn't be too big (13,3" would be optimal)
- The Battery Life should be at 6HRs+
- The build quality needs to be pretty good... I don't want to get some trash

I know that I possibly can't have all things I mentioned above but it would be nice if we could get near to it.

Budget: I'm able to spend around 1000€ (~1150$). But it would be nice if I don't need to spend more than 500€ (~600$).

Many thanks in advance guys!

Wait for Raven Ridge/Ryzen Mobile.

Much better GPU performance while having similar CPU performance.

Even if you still go with Intel, prices will drop.

I never heard of Venom... Is is a good brand?

Well I don't know much about CPU/GPU things but I already waited way too long to be honest ... :o

here is a reference to chew on. I would focus more on the extra ports, if you like charging your phone via USB, or camera, or other things.

Also this site claims the battery lasted over 6 hours watching a movie non-stop, which would mean if you browsed the internet, worked on some excel spreadsheets, you'll probably see 7-8 hours on 50% screen brightness. The test did not mention how bright the screen was, either which is a big point of doing the dang test.

2017 retina macbook has also 6-7 hours of non-stop video watching

the new chrome pixlebook is nice as hell, and it's actually not a bad price for the specs

>Can someone explain me why
pretty good reliability, and availability of replacement/upgrade parts. you can also get used, well specced models for reasonably cheap.

>> No.63089439

Mechanical reliability is such an easy thing to overlook when first shopping for a notebook. When I bought my first notebook (Amilo Pi) I was just looking at the specs - fast CPU. I ended up with a machine that had 2h battery life and would start falling apart after a couple of years. It's still feeling snappy today, but the screen will only turn on when you tilt it a certain angle and bits of plastic have fallen off here and there. Also the fastest way to get data on and off this thing is USB 2.0 as it lacks gigabit Ethernet.

I got my x260 for < $1000, it's pretty amazing.

Surface book 1st Gen would be a good option

>sleek and nice design
>magnesium build
>2 in 1 design plus tablet mode
>big battery life 10hrs+
>3000 x 2000 3:2 display

Its a little bit over but just by $50 but its a good deal for you use for the laptop and its everything you want in a laptop


>> No.63089848

The Surface looks nice but isn't it a little but unstable when I'm putting it on my lap?

>> No.63089867

the thing I hate about choosing the right laptop there are so many factors that most people don't think about. Usually you should have to but not doing research on the following things can break your usage experience:

>is the display IPS or TN? How are the viewing angles? what about color gamut? sRGB, adobe RGB? gray-to-gray response time? how many memes are on the box that don't tell you anything about the actual performance of the screen?
>is the keyboard something you will enjoy typing on for a few hours at a time, or do you prefer external accessories?
>is the trackpad worth a damn or is it a thin, shit-wafer that's a mushy fucking piece of shit? what about the left / right buttons?
Are they apart of the trackpad or separate? How defined is the "click" when depressed? Palm detection and clicking on the
>is the CPU a i7 U or HQ or HK? is it bending the price too much? It not, what are they sacrificing to compensate for the hardware? cheap build quality using plastics over metal?
>Or on the inverse, is it cheap because you're getting a """"GAMING"""" i7-7500U that's a dual core low watt cpu over it's 7700hq or hk brother?
>same goes for the GPU, amd or nvidia and what kind of power are you wanting out of it?
>is there a 2.5 inch ssd / hdd / m.2 sata / m.2 nvme? How much storage? how much is the price hike?
>is the RAM soldered on or SODIMMs?
>is the bottom of the laptop easy to remove? Is it easy to access the upgrade-able (if any) components? Is it a fucking abortion to get into (LOOKING AT YOU MSI)
>back lighting for the keys on the keyboard?
>how hot does it get?
>how long does the battery last?

there's so many questions you really have to think about what you're getting. If you get a laptop with shitty drivers it won't matter how awesome the laptop looks if it can't perform.

>> No.63089918

Well I didn't think about these things. It seems like you're knowing pretty much about it.

Chromebook. You will come to regret any money you've spent on a laptop eventually. At least make sure it's a small amount.

>> No.63090517

I don't understand. Do you mean a Chromebook is good or bad?

I already saw some Chromebooks but the most arent avaiable in my country.

Chromebook is as much functionality as you can expect from a laptop, and it's cheap.

In germany...

Many chromebooks are listed as "not avaiable at the moment" on amazon. If i want a c302 for example i need to import it... 30$for shipping and 100+$ for customs. And no one is selling one here on ebay or so.

speaking of laptops, does anyone know any wireless mice that can clip on to the laptop like the Logitech 550?

They go for a ridiculous amount now and I cant find any similar products
