I'm looking for something cute, but capable

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

So I'm in the market for a small laptop, 10-13 inches, to be my daily roleplaying and general browsing machine.  The keyfeel and quality of the keyboard is paramount here, but at least 8GB of ram, and 150GB of SSD storage would be appreciated.  Something that might make things difficult, is that I'd like one in a cute color, something pastel like a pink purple or green.  Or at least a skin brand that fits whatever models are found.  Overall build quality can be as low as a C+ and the screen I would prefer to be 1080p.  The closest thing I could find is the old 11 inch HP Stream but those are far too underspec now

What's the budget and locale? 

from the outset the Lenovo Yoga C930 might be what you want but the colours maybe aren't what you wanted. Could stick googly eyes on it maybe.


Yours faithfully

ChromeOS isn't my thing.  Sorry I should've said Windows only

There are some high-end Chromebooks, that have good core series CPUs and plenty of RAM. Those can just have windows installed on them.

Wih your paramount criteria, it's going to be an in person look see.  Go to carious stores and type on them.

 

I can't see how anyone can recommend a laptop to fit your VERY subjective keyfeel requirements, nor how you can buy one without touching it first because of that.

Odd, though tbf who buys direct from the brands website, amazon and the likes of those might have some left over, might even be on sale if it is now out of production

Alrighty unless that lenovo's going cheap on amazon or something probably not what you want. 
Maybe something like a Dell Inspiron 13 5391 or similar, though again it doesn't have pretty colours, to get small, cheap and pretty colours it seems a high end chrome book and just install windows on it is the way to go. 


Yours faithfully

I was more looking for a general consensus, not a definitive "This feels the best to me"
