Choosing a laptop

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello,

As the title states, im choosing between laptops. Currently i have 3 options :

Acer Aspire 3 15.6 Inch Pentium 4GB 1TB 128GB , Lenovo IdeaPad 330 15.6 Inch AMD A9 8GB 1TB , HP 15.6 Inch Ryzen 3 4GB 2TB Full HD . The laptop is for my brother who is 10 years old, he will mainly be using it for checking his homework, maybe ocasional light gaming. Price range is to 400£, or a bit more. Would be best to find from argos.co.uk

if your going for light gaming i assume the ryzen 3 laptop is a 2200g processor in which that case would be the one to go with

I do not, as long it wont be a lot more complicated than argo and the shipping doesnt take months :)

Same process and shipping normally decently quick. You'll also get a lot better performance. Do you need battery life as for your price range you'll be able to get a laptop with a 1050 at a squeeze

The thing is, gaming is not important at all, i just threw it into things that it must do. As i said it will mainly be used for homework checking, some microsoft word, powerpoint. It better boot up fast and be smooth than run games at higher graphic options. If he would even play games, they would mainly be like minecraft, roblox and stuff.
