Looking for Laptop Suggestions

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I already have a few in mind, but I'm looking for suggestions on good laptops to suit my needs.

 

I'm a computer science major in college. My ideal specs are the following

CPU: 4 cores or more (Ryzen 5/7 or Intel i5/i7 8th Gen preferred)

DRAM: at least 8 GB

I/O: Thunderbolt 3 or other port supporting 4k @ 60hz (such as a type c port supporting 4K @ 60hz)

Screen size: 13.3" or 14"

Weight: 4lbs or under

SSD: Not needed if there is a sata port. I can transfer my 500 gb ssd from my old laptop into the new one if needed. NVMe wouldn't be a bad option though since it saves weight

Price: Under $700

 

I don't need anything too fancy. Just looking for something to meet my needs and be portable since I carry it around with me all day at class

This is a bit challenging. Might want to increase budget further

Normal USB c is fine, I just had the thunderbolt listed in the case that there would be some models with it

Alright. No preference on battery life? Mind low sRGB display and non-upgradable RAM?

Both are perfectly fine for my moderate uses. My plan is that in the future I will build my own desktop to handle my more intense tasks like 4k video production 

 

As for battery life, just something that can make it at least, if not more than 5 hours preferably

USB C should be able to support 4k60 but I'm not so sure
