Laptop suggestions for working remotely.

For that kind of budget, I'd go used/refurb. I'd probably look at a used Thinkpad P51.

I believe the P51 is available with a range of 7th gen i7/xeons, quadros, 2 NVME drives, 1 2.5" drive, and up to 64gb of DDR4 (as well as the usual perks you expect from a Thinkpad).

Hi, everyone. I need some help picking out the right laptop. I need something that will be a workstation. I'm looking at the 600-900 range. Obviously the cheaper option would be best. It needs to be able to handle a lot of chrome tabs like 50 or more while running things like Adobe PDF, MS Word, Excel, and some other background tasks. I found this IdeaPad, but I'm not sure about the Core i5-1035G1. The other option I found for myself was this HP ProBook 455 and it has a Ryzen 7 4700U which should offer more bang for buck. Which would you pick and do you know if there's anything out there that would be a better option? I need the system to have 16gb RAM (ddr3 is fine too) with at least 512GB ssd/nvme. It doesn't have to be brand new either. I'm happy to buy used/refurbished as long as the specs are good, but it's hard to find an old laptop that can handle the software I'm using. Right now I have an old MSI MS-16GH and it's starting to show it's age. Most of the time the CPU is at 50-70% when working on it and there is noticeable delays with software loading/freezing.

Buy a custom PC if you are asking for a workstation machine, and then select as much as you want of Rams and other specs

The more rams you got, the more your pc responds faster and process faster.

usually more rams for multitasking

 

The problem is that there is a lot of Expensive modern laptops that got medium capacity of rams but with Some extra features of which is the reason of their price, The book laptops are now in race.

I found some good options for that on ebay with a nice 7820hq too. Thanks for the help!
