Best laptop in the market for simple productivity ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So my uncle has tasked me with choosing a laptop for him, he is not a power user or anything, he will mainly use it for microsoft office, browsing the web, watching movies and etc.. 

just the regular old stuff you know ( ̄o ̄) . z Z

This will probably be the first & only laptop he will buy so I was thinking I get one that's somewhat future-proof. His budget is around the 800$ mark ( it can go a tad higher ).
the main selling points I'm looking for are:

  • Portability 
  • Build Quality
  • Battery Life
  • Generation 8 or above CPU

as he is constantly travelling and will be using the laptop without attaching the power brick a lot. also i thought that he didn't need a laptop with an external graphics card as that will only increase weight and shorten battery life

secondary selling points are:

  • Keyboard : Quality and Spacing
  • Screen : Size & brightness

Sidenote : he specifically said no apple products, not that i'd have recommended them anyway.

i have been struggling with finding the right laptop a lot recently, would appreciate any help from you guys a lot. (‾◡◝).

Not sure you're going to get quality at 800$, but the Dell Precision line of laptops are very high quality, they are considered "mobile workstations" and are composed to high quality parts.

I'd skip HP, just my professional opinion on that

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds
