any of these APUs would be fine
Code: Select all
A8-7100 1.8 GHz 3.0 GHz DDR3-1600 20W A10-7300 1.9 GHz 3.2 GHz DDR3-1600 20W A8-7200P 2.4 GHz 3.3 GHz DDR3-1866 35W A10-7400P 2.5 GHz 3.4 GHz DDR3-1866 35W
Acer Aspire E5-551-86R8 15.6-Inch Laptop (Midnight Black) A8-7100
Acer Aspire E5-551-T5SV 15.6-Inch Laptop (Midnight Black) A10-7300
Lenovo Z50 15.6-Inch Laptop (80EC000TUS) Black A10-7300
all on amazon with prices that vary from $300 to 500 (amazon prizing bouncing around from day to day the Lenovo jumped almost a $100 the other day)
I don't care about the HD (I'll swap for a SSD) I do care about reliability, ram, screen (though all these have that less than optimal 1366 x 768 I'd rather have a x 900 screen resolution).
Not looking for Intel based laptops or older AMD APUs.
If you have any thoughts on Acer vs Lenovo or would like to add more choices...
