hello everyone im new looking for a new potential laptop

@jamesmarshall1992,

Two potential issues jump out at me:

-It has a 5400RPM hard drive. hat will be very slow. Get an SSD for your OS and programs, and en external hard drive fr working files. With USB 3.1, speed wont be too much of an issue.

 

SSD vd Hard drive:

 

-Second, it has only 4GB of system RAM. The 16GB Optane module is a very fast SSD used to cache the hard drive, but it is not a substitute for RAM. I'd get 8GB at a minimum, 16GB would be better.

 

More on Optane here:

 

 

And welcome to the forum!
