Recommended Posts

My mom needs a new laptop for when she goes back to work on getting her accounting degree. She will be doing this from home. What is a decent laptop or what are things that are necessary so she has a decent experience.

Used Thinkpad. X-series if she wants something small but relatively thicc, T(s)-series if she wants something bigger and, with the TS, thinner, and an X1(C) if she wants an Ultrabook.

Quote me to see my reply!

I’d buy used if your on a budget as you usually get a better laptop for the price. Check out my post on my daily driver I got used recently for inspiration.
