“What is a good cheap laptop I can buy?” is a question I get asked often. In this laptop buying guide tutorial, firstly I talk about why most people should never buy a laptop. Cheap end laptops are designed to fail sooner than their desktop counterparts, and than higher end laptops.
Often a person looking for a computer can buy a decent traditional desktop computer, even better is to build a desktop computer. There are so many YouTube Tutorials on How To Build A PC or Computer.
The main advice is this, if you are looking to buy a laptop, then do not buy a laptop at the low end spectrum. Often many people buy a mac book. If this is too pricey, then look for a laptop with a fast SSD (Solid State Drive) instead. The best advice for buying a laptop is to have it custom built and pick your own parts, including an SSD as the main drive.
If you are buying a used laptop, consider buying a laptop that is easy to upgrade, easy to troubleshoot, and easy to repair if necessary.
The general advice is never to buy a cheap end laptop with a normal laptop drive for around £300.00. Note that this will work for all makes and models like: HP Hewlett-Packard Dell Acer Lenovo Asus Samsung Toshiba Sony Vaio Thinkpad Apple
In this video I demonstrate how an older 8 year laptop with a less powerful CPU and less RAM with an upgraded SSD (Solid State Drive) can outperform more recent laptops with a normal laptop Mechanical Hard Drive spinning at 5400 RPM.
