Help me pick a laptop

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I need a laptop with a touchscreen, 1tb SSD, 15inch minimum screen, no GPU, and a strong processor.


Ive had awful experiences with HP and Dell’s Alienware in the past so I don’t know if I trust them anymore.


Budget: 1200 max

Without a GPU I’d be surprised if I didn’t

You aren't going to find one for that price with an SSD, or a dedicated GPU.

Probably gaming or helping technophobes with tech...

Like I pointed out in your previous post, add the SSD after purchase, it's very hard to find a good laptop that has 1TB SSD (and they are expensive). HP Envy x360 meets your needs.


Everyone had bad experience with brands, however this doesn't mean that you don't want to buy from them anymore. It really depends on luck and also model.
